Dynamic Duos

Stampin' Up! colours aren't selected randomly ... they are designed specifically to coordinate with each other, and this is most obvious in the colour pairings knows as "Dynamic Duos". This means that two colours are the same, simply a different shade, as shown here with Pumpkin Pie and Apricot Appeal.

It's a handy way of creating a card when you're a bit short on colour inspiration but want to ensure the finished result will please the eye.

I completely CASEd the layout of this card from one at Splitcoast stampers (kudos to the originator, I just wish I knew the link so I could show you), but changed the colours from green to orange.

Sadly the photo doesn't do the card justice ... the colours are more vibrant in real life and the whole thing isn't quite as blurry (poor photography skills showing through there *g*).
