Hello my Crafty Friends!

Today’s share is a gorgeous Monochrome card and whilst its simple in it’s design it’s also elegant I feel.

I needed a card for my Step Mum’s Birthday and she is into White Vintage at the minute, But I want to to add some punchiness to it too and what better way than add a splash of Black!

These botanical papers are so beautiful I will be Sad Sad Sad with a Capital S when they retire at the end of the months you can see from previous posts I am using them A LOT!

Both the stripes and the Butterflies come from the same set, One side is Black and White the other side is a Coloured Pattern, I have to confess to loving the Monochrome side better.

I started by cutting strips of patterned paper at 2cm or 3/4 inch wide and adhered to either side of the card blank which is C6 in size, cut from A4 size card stock , cutting in half to make A5 size 14.8 cm x 21cm and score at 10.5cm on the 21cm side for US size, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”.

I then cut a Whisper White piece the same length as my card blank but 8cm wide, or 3 inches.  I tied some thin ribbon around the White Piece, and tied in a bow,

 I then die cut a circle form the stitched Framelits, I feel the stitched Framelits add a little something around the edges, it’s a pretty effect to a shape I feel. I adhered this to the card using dimensionals for added effect.

I fussy cut the butterflies but you can punch them with our co ordinating punch, which is out of stock until mid April at least,  I attached these using a glue dot, behind one of them the one on the circle I added some Metallic Silver Thread.

Added my sentiment is stamped in memento Ink from the Itty Bitty Birthdays, wow this set is my go to sentiment set at the minute, I think it’s a fabulous buy!

Then to finish I used Sequins from the Gingham Gala adhesive backed Sequins pack and some Rhinestones.

I am pleased to say the card was well received and now sits proudly in a frame!

Hope you like it as much as we do!
