It’s no secret that our latest and greatest special issue, Card Design Handbook, is an amazing resource for discovering the guidelines that help make sure our cards and other paper-crafted projects are designed well.
Here on Paper Crafts Connection, we gave you a week-long glimpse into what the issue has to offer, and I think you could tell that we editors couldn’t be more excited about the concept of this issue and how we were able to communicate it to you, our faithful readers.
In the Moxie Fab World, we have 5 challenges that focus on 5 different lessons on design that can help you not just become aware of those particular elements of design, but give you a chance to try them on and see how they fit into your process. (If you’d like to join us, click HERE.)
BUT, what didn’t get mentioned in any overt fashion throughout the course of our promotional week a couple of weeks ago, is the multitude of really impressive projects the issue has to offer. Setting aside the 24 informative lessons on design, this issue is simply chock full of fantastically striking projects that offer card-making motivation in and of themselves.
And not to beat you over the head with this issue, but I just really can’t go on without showing just a few examples of what I mean.
Take this fabulously fun card by Teri Anderson. It was created for the section on “Rule of Thirds,” but even if you didn’t know or care about the Rule of Thirds, this card rates high on the giddiness scale.
And I don’t know about you, but this card created by Windy Robinson for our Style section representing classy and elegant just drips with gorgeous textures, lavish details, and a color combination that sings!
And last but certainly not least, this masterpiece of a card by Laura Bassen. The colors in this trendy triangular pattern create unspeakable joy—and to think! It’s not even a card from the Color section, but a moxie fab example of a clean and graphic card from our Style section.
I mean seriously friends, the depth of this special issue is tremendous. From lessons on design to incredible eye candy—you’ll be turning to this issue time after time after time!
That’s me, dog-earing just about everything in this issue for one reason or another,
