Use 2 primary colours
At least 2 staples
and add either a stamped image or punch or die cut item.
To get an idea for my layout I went to Let's get sketchy
My 2 primary colours are red and blue.
I've used an October Afternoon paper "Fly a kite" that I bought from Mystical.
There is also a fringed paper I made.
The 2 staples are on the photo mat
My lined paper is on the top of the photo where it says basics.(A recycled BG packet)
My die cut item is actually an old slide mount that I have also painted.
The ribbon is tied loosely as the top of the card tore.
