The Rule of Thirds

When I first made this card, it was full size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) but just didn't look right. Then I remembered the rule of thirds used in photography; so I cut off some of the bottom to make it more proportional. Notice the top third is the pink cardstock, the middle third is the dry embossing and the bottom third is the sentiment and brad. Happy with the adjustment, I then made a new envelope to fit the scaled-down size.

Sometimes, corrected mistakes make the most beautiful cards!

Doris, this is gorgeous. I love how simple it is. I love the embossing, it really makes the card elegant.
