Creative Cardmaker: Adding contrast to your backgrounds...

I usually love using white backgrounds on my cards, but with fall arriving here in Colorado, I’ve been in the mood to be different and try some fall colors against a darker background. I love the contrast the darker background gives! 

Fall is a great time to mix up your colors and try a few new color palettes! For inspiration, try looking for autumn wedding color combinations on Pinterest; there are so many beautiful pictures to inspire you.
I've used the Big Hugs dies and Vintage Linens stamps and dies by Papertrey Ink, as well as the Luxe Gold Adhesive Paper.
Stop over to the Weekly Scrapper blog to read more about these cards and my process, and hopefully be inspired to try a dark background on your next card. See you next week with another Creative Cardmaker post!

So awesomely gorgeous! Beautifully balanced design (love the stripes on the side). Whenever I do a card on a darker background I end up not liking it:(
