Share it on a Sunday - Monochrome Card

Hi Everyone,

This week, for Share it on a Sunday, Donna chose 'monochrome' for the theme so I've come up with a gorgeous grape card, I love this colour and better than that, it has gingham and butterflies!! Two of my most favourite elements on a card.  If you click on the links below, you can pop over to see what Donna and Victoria have made this week.

Victoria Littlewood


1 piece of thick whisper white 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
1 piece of gorgeous grape card stock 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" and 1 piece 4" x 2 7/8"
1 piece of gorgeous grape gingham dsp 5 3/8" x 3 5/8"
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 2 3/4"
Bloom and grow stamp set
Gorgeous Grape ink
Scraps of gorgeous grape card for the butterflies
Butterfly duet punch
Basic rhinestones
Multipurpose adhesive


Fold and burnish the thick whisper white to make the card base.

Adhere the gorgeous grape layer and then the gingham, leaving a small border all the way round on each layer.

Stamp the image and the sentiment on the smaller piece of whisper white.  I put both stamps together on a large block so that I could get the placement right.  Stamp a sentiment and some flowers on the inside of the card for decoration.  I've also stamped on the envelope too just to add a bit of interest.

Punch out two of the small butterflies with the butterfly duet punch from the scrap of gorgeous grape.

Add the stamped layer to the smaller layer of gorgeous grape, leaving a small border around the outside and then add to the card front with dimensionals.

Bend the wings of the butterflies up and then add them to the front of the card and add some rhinestones to the centre for the body.

A quick and simple card which would look great in any of the 52 Stampin' Up! colours and there are 52 different ginghams too, what more could you want ha ha!
