Monochrome Birthday Wishes

Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, Karen!

I chose this card as my inspiration:

LIST: Colours (aqua, yellow, pink & white), Techniques (die cutting, stamping, colouring), Elements (die cut daffodil bouquet, butterflies, tilted square panel, patterned paper backgrounds, stamped sentiment strip, ribbon)

INCLUDE: colours, die cut botanical, tilted square panel

MODIFY: olive branch vs daffodils, square tilted in opposite direction, background is die cut not patterned paper, sentiment 'strip' is part of the frame, reduced yellow and pink for a more monochrome look

EXCLUDE: butterflies, ribbon

SPIN: square card, negative frame

I coloured some cardstock with my Hot Tub ink and then die cut a background panel with a coverplate, and a branch. I scored and folded each leaf for some dimension.

I cut a square from a square from white cardstock, using EBE Essential Square dies, which cut a narrow frame, which makes it very easy to create a negative frame like this. I stamped my sentiment on the frame, and then placed the branch on top.

I finished the card with some pink and yellow gems.


  1. Fabulous card! I really love the aqua background and foreground and white frame and panel. And love the coloured bling!

  2. This card is so lovely. This is a great color for a monochromatic design...refreshing! tfs-stay well.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Ardyth - so restrained and elegant
