Creative Construction with Blueprints: Right This Way


We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards (and tags!) in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original design combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

This month, join us as our team explores inventive ways of integrating Blueprints directional elements into their designs. Directional elements range from obvious arrows to simple tags and banners that include a pointed end. They’re a fantastic way to lead your recipient right to the sweet spot of your look.
Barbara created a directional sign on her card using Blueprints 28 that perfectly coordinates with her sentiment and adds such a fun element to her design.

Joy used the two large banners from Blueprints 13 to create directional layers under her scene with a tone-on-tone white background.
