Lily Bee Design | Negative Space Cards

This week we are focusing on negative space as a design element on the Lily Bee Design blog.  I made two cards and blogged at the Lily Bee blog for the first time as a new design team member!  :) 

My first card had some hexagons cut-outs and a cute bee.

Supplies:  Pinwheel Collection (Lemonade Stand paper, Picnic Basket paper), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Ice Cream Truck paper)

I used my Silhouette digital cutter to cut out the five hexagons on the right side. Then I adhered patterned paper underneath the cutouts. I popped up the last hexagon on the left with some foam adhesive to make it stand out, and adhered my bee to it.  The word "AWESOME" was also cut out from the card base.

I thought I would put a positive spin on negative space on my second card, so I created a card with a message that "things are looking up".

Supplies:  Sweet Shoppe Collection (Lemon Drop paper, Jelly Bean paper, Pink Mint paper, Jujube paper)

I used my Sihouette to cut out three chevrons out of the center patterned paper and adhered other patterned papers behind it.  Then I popped up two chevrons above that.  Then I sewed the piece onto my card base.

My Lily Bee Design team mate Diana Fisher also created two beautiful cards featuring negative space.  You can see all our cards on the Lily Bee Design blog here

Have a great Thursday!
