2014-10-27 Autumn Greetings; monotones with a pop of color


In one of my craft groups the theme this month is to make a card using monotones. I think this design almost fits the bill…it just needed a pop of color for interest or it would have been to blah! Here is what I came up with.

The leaves were made using a Martha Stewart leaf stamp with matching punch. It makes for quick and easy leaves. I used the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor ink pad and just stamped random colors then punched them out. Next they went through my crimping tool then onto the card. I brushed the finished leaves with an iridescent medium for glimmer.

The center “button” is really a alphabet brad that has been covered with matching scrapbook paper. Once that was trimmed up and glued in place I added crystal effects and sprinkled with glitter.

I used long standard and scallop ovals by Spellbinders to make the sentiment medallion. The sentiment is by Craft Stamps.

    Bonnie, the cards are just lovely! I love the background and then the colored leaves and ribbon on the front.
