The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Monochromatic Cards
This card measures 4-1/4" wide by 5-1/2" long.
- Texture! When creating a monochromatic card, use texture to add interest. The "Floral Flourish" from the Sale-A-Bration set Fresh Vintage, was randomly stamped onto textured Very Vanilla card stock to create "faux brocade". The stunning Poppy Parade Floral Designer Series Paper, from Sale-A-Bration's Everyday Enchantment collection, was zipped through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create a tactile delight!
- Tone on tone! The Poppy Parade Butterfly, made with the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, is given an elegant update courtesy of VersaMark ink and Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. A few pearls add the perfect touch!
- Curl up and dye! The "Happiness" sentiment from Loving Thoughts is flagged and curled, transforming "blah" to "ah"! And when a custom colored ribbon is in order, never overlook the power of three: re-inkers, stamp pads, and Stampin' Write Markers. In this case, I used Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Marker to create a coordinating ribbon in seconds!
I hope that you enjoyed today's card. It was fun...and relatively fast..to create. Won't you let me know what you think by leaving me a comment today? And of course, if you ever have a question about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
