Pumpkin Pie’s Complementary Color Scheme

Pumpkin Pie Thinking of You Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

The Complement to Pumpkin Pie, the Tone in the Orange Color Group, is a member of the Blue Color Group. For this card, I chose the Shade, Night of Navy. This Complementary Color Scheme is great for masculine cards, so that’s what I made!

You’ll notice there’s not a flower or butterfly in sight! I used the World Map Background Stamp, then found a Circles Collection Framelits Die that fit the ship from The Open Sea Stamp Set. I used “Thinking of You” for the sentiment instead of searching out “Wish You Were Here,” a typical phrase for a traveling post card.

The Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy Complementary Color Scheme is good for masculine or unisex cards and pages. The colors may also be school colors from someone’s Alma Mater! Or your favorite sports team! The high contrast adds a bit of sophistication, especially with sketched images as shown.
