Big News - The Card Concept

This is my second post for today - for my Day 11 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration, please scroll down.

Grab this DT Badge for your blog

By now you've heard about the newest challenge blog on the block - The Card Concept. It's different from other challenges in that instead of focusing on one style, there are 12 designers using 6 different styles, all using the same inspiration.

 It's a bi-weekly challenge starting in January and I'm one of the 'Clean and Graphic' designers.

Here's the definition of Clean and Graphic

-clean lines
-simple treatment of text
-no frills
-bare-boned
-message is communicated quickly.

Here's a card I made ages ago that I think represents Clean and Graphic really well:



For each challenge you can choose your favourite style or decide to go outside your comfort zone and try a different style! You know I love to make designs that are very clean, but I also truly appreciate all the intricate beauty of some of the design styles that have a lot more elements - I'm looking forward to working with these 11 amazing women and learning something new, too!

Congrats on your new DT position and thanks for directing me to the new challenge blog. Love the concept. I must have missed Lesley's announcement while taking a trip to Sydney, Australia. I look forward to the new challenges and all inspiration from you and the other DT members.

Oh YAY, so this is your news!! I was waiting for the 11th : ) I honestly can not think of ANYone more clean and graphic than you. I'm so curious now to check out who the other designer is in your category. In fact, I'll have to check them all out (I knew about Tracey). So exciting, can't wait for it to start!
