I love creating a card that is simple, quick, easy and effective. Monochromatic cards can be stunning in their simplicity. I’m sure many stamp sets could be used for this quick and easy technique.
You’ll need a detail rich stamp set, an embossing buddy, VersaMark ink, White Embossing Powder, and a Heat Tool — and a single color of card stock.
I think it needs a little frame around the main image. My first attempt was an oval frame.
I also tried a narrower oval frame.
Here’s the wider frame with it’s oval greeting.
For the finishing touch I added a few little Basic Pearl Jewels to the flower centers as well and here and there on the card and greeting.
Question for you all……Which do you prefer, the wider or narrower oval frame?
I can’t wait to make another similar card since I really feel that monochromatic cards can be stunning in their simplicity. When you try it please share your sample with me firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post here on my blog for everyone to enjoy and admire.
(And now I’m off to unload, split and stack some almond wood! I know I have some links to fix but it’ll have to wait for a few hours……..hubby is ready to work.)
