Elegant Monochrome Card. Today’s card is a stunner. Inspired by Melissa Kay Design on Pinterest (a great source of inspiration). This card is one in the ‘simple, but effective’ group. one die cut, one stamp, some pearls and some thread. Add some Glimmer Paper for a bit of a lift and that is it. I made this a Congratulations card, but you can change the sentiment to fit the occasion you need. Change the colour scheme too if you would like, this is a really flexible card for that. But for me, monochrome is perfect.
I used the Petal Palette Stamps and Petals & More dies for my design. These are available as separate items, but work perfectly together. I added Silver Glimmer behind the stamped sentiment, both on top of some Silver Metallic Thread. The die did need a little bit of surgery on Dimensionals to keep it in place but elevated, but the finished result was worth it. The pearls are just the perfect finishing touch.
I love this type of quick, elegant and clean card. Most are quicker to put together, without the surgery on the Mini Dimensionals! Using Basic Gray and Smokey Slate means that you get that softer monochrome that you would not get if you used Basic Black as your darker shade. This would also work well in Earth tones like Early Espresso and Crumb Cake, although I think I would use Soft Suede rather than Early Espresso. Change the Silver for Gold or Copper if you do go choose Earth Tones. Which ever, give it a go and then share the result with me over at the Old Stables Crafty Hang Out on Face Book. You would be most welcome and I love when the gang share their crafty makes.
