Creating a Focal Point With Small Items

Danielle header

Welcome back to another Creative Cardmaker post! Today’s card features a grouping of smaller items to form one large focal point! I’ve used the Tiny Tags stamps and dies, but you could group any smaller die cut or punched shape on a card, such as butterflies, circles, hearts, stars, etc. Grouping them together helps keep the focal point cohesive and creates one large “item” to look at on your card, rather than several smaller things spread apart, which isn’t as pleasing to the eye.

Here is my card! I’ve die cut and stamped five different tiny tags shapes in colors that coordinate. I also cut a Big Hugs die to put over the top. I arranged them so they are off center from each other a bit, but still balanced by color and weight (size) of the tags.

The Tiny Tags were die cut and stamped with a variety of sayings. You could add little enamel dots or chipboard pieces on them also if you didn’t want to stamp on them. The last step to put it all together was to add a Chicken Scratch Gingham paper in the background and a die cut frame with the Cover Plate: Pretty Frame die.

Be sure to give this a try and leave a link to your card in the comments! I’d love to see what you’ve created. Have a great day!
