“M" is for Monochromatic! I chose this particular style for the name game because I have found with slight color variations and some texture you can make really classy-looking cards (my favorite).
The Dotted Swirls cover plate gives a lovely yet interesting background design. Using various cardstock I assembled the Virginia Rose 3D die. Add a sweet sentiment and you’re done!
*Note: If you don’t have colored shades of cardstock Altenew Inks can be used to color white stock for a similar effect. Add splatter, texture paste, glitter or embossing powders for added interest.
For this slimline card I cut a piece of gray stock and stamped some leaves from the Leaf Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle along the left side of the card then embossed the panel with the Organic Linen 3D embossing folder (one of my faves!). Trim the piece to cover the top half of a gray base and adhere. Separately, I stamped the Cattleya BAF using warm gray and green inks. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Inside stamp set. Layer those flowers along the side and done!
For my final card, also slimline, I stayed with gray and white cardstocks for a classic wedding card. I followed the same steps as above however, the focal point here is the Virgina Rose 3D die...isn’t she lovely?! The sentiment here comes from the Vintage Roses set.
I hope you have found some inspiration here and will give a monochromatic theme a try😀 If there are any questions, please let me know. Next on the hop is Irina Fonina. If you get lost along the way below is the complete Blog hop list. Enjoy!
