Mix & Match Designs: How it Works, part 3

In part 3 of the Mix & Match design series, I'm going to go over a few of the ways you can incorporate a pattern and border in your design!

In this third example, Sans Serif Font 4 and Casual Script 10 are used, along with a combination of birds & insects motif bi-018, border bor-009, and pattern pat-025. The example is shown in the colors Flax and Steel.

This example shows how the color, size, and placement of your patterns and borders affect the style of your design. The various motif sizes and placements also impact the overall look of the stationery.
When using a pattern in your stationery, it is usually recommended to use a border as well to block off the area where your text will go. 
However (as shown in the bottom left example) you can also use an all over pattern, provided the color is light enough to allow the text to be easy to read.

Have any questions? Feel free to contact me at sarah[!@] Or if you're ready to order, you can start off by reading through the mix & match design process, then pick out your colors, fontsmotifspatterns, and borders, and finally, fill out the mix & match order form.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for part 4 in the mix & match design series, where I'll show you how a monogram can be used in place of a motif.
