Diamond Thank You

I shared this card a couple weeks ago where I used the Detailed Diamonds set from The Stamp Market to create the background.  There is a coordinating die set that I used for today's's only $5.99, so lots of bang for your buck  The dies come wired together, and while I'll eventually cut them apart, there are all sorts of fun things you can do when they are wired together.

For this card I cut the nested diamonds three times from three different colors of cardstock - blue, orange, and white.

Then I just played with them a bit mixing up the different layers.  This creates a design that still has the structure I think your eye wants, but it is a more dynamic/bold design.

The sentiment is from Altenew's Arabesque Medallion set, and I kept it very simple so as not to detract from the background.

This is a fun design because it can definitely be altered to suit different moods.  This is very bold and bright because of the colors used, but substitute in a soft gray and yellow and you'd get a vastly different look.  Similarly, if you used some gold mirror board and black, you could get a very elegant, deco look.  Lots and lots of possibilities!

Thanks so much for visiting, hope your week is going well!
