Monochromatic of Kraft

Altenew edible eggplant embossing glitter Gina K Cardstock gina k connect glue Gina K designs inked flora lawn fawn fog cardstock watercolor stripes cover die

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I have a lovely monochromatic card today where I have used a kraft card base to add a pop of interest to bring out the monochromatic colour scheme. When I was making this card, I originally planned to have the flower in just the fog cardstock but decided to add a few flowers in the purple to increase the contrast, and I'm so glad I did. We often reach for more and more colours to add to a card, but you can create stunning elegant cards with just a few colour cardstock and some simple heat embossing. Sometimes you just need not overthink a card and when you do the results are stunning!

Written and photos for Monochromatic of Kraft:

To start, use the Watercolor Stripes cover die from Altenew and die cut this out of some Edible Eggplant cardstock by Gina K Designs. Adhere this down with Gina K connect glue onto a kraft card base measuring at 5.5"x 4.25. 

Before setting this to one side, dilute some white acrylic paint with a little water and using a paint brush, add some paint splatter to the background for texture. Allow this to dry whilst you work on the rest of the card. 
To create the floral elements, take the largest flower from the Inked Flora stamp set from Altenew along with the two leaves and position these in your MISTI. Add a piece of Lawn Fawn Fog cardstock into your platform and stamp the designs with embossing ink. 
Cover the stamped designs in a neutral glitter embossing powder of your choice and heat set with your heat gun. Repeat this step with edible eggplant cardstock for a couple of the leaves.
Cut the embossed images out, either fussy cutting with scissors or using the coordinating dies. Next, foam mount the images onto the card using adhesive foam squares with different thickness to create dimension.  Add a small heat embossed sentiment from the Sketchy Floral set from Altenew. To finish the card, add a few silver Nuvo Drops as embellishments. 
If you enjoyed today's card, please let us know and we would love to see your cards if this has inspired you.
