To make the card in this tutorial you will need two colors of cardstock to weave together and another
color of cardstock for the background. The colors for weaving need to contrast with each other in either
brightness or color. Use a light and dark of the same color or two different colors that coordinate well
with each other. When selecting two different colors good choices
are complementary colors or analogous colors.
Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, naturally
high contrast to each other and exude high energy.
colors are near each other on the color wheel, have a cheerful
effect, reflect color schemes found in nature and create color
harmonies that are pleasing to the eye.
The background cardstock needs to be a color that coordinates well with the woven strips. To keep things simple,
when using complementary colors for the weaving strips, a lighter or darker hue of one of the colors works well. With
analogous colors, use a third color that is on either side of the two strip colors.
the featured card, the colors used are considered split analogous, that is, three colors that are one space apart on the color wheel. In
this case, the colors are yellow and orange for weaving and red for the background.
Layout your colors of cardstock and select an eye pleasing
combination using these color wheel concepts as a guide. Try not to
over-think the color choices and let the color selections reflect
what you like.
