It's a Blue Monday!

Happy Monday! It's  Monday Mishmash and we're celebrating "Blue Monday" but not a sad, blue day.  Instead, I have prepared a card using blue card stock!  While looking at different card designs, I saw a monochromatic card prepared in a deep tan and embossed with a contrasting color.  The monochromatic look was beautiful and I decided to use one of my favorite colors in the Brights Collection - Tempting Turquoise,  to prepare a similar monochromatic look.  The white embossing "pops" against the blue background and creates a bright, cheerful look. It was a quick, simple card that is classic in design.  As an added touch, the white card liner was stamped with the Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' ink pad.




Materials and Tools:
Tempting Turquoise Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock
White Stampin' Emboss Powder
VersaMark Ink
Secret Garden Stamp Set
Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set
 Curly Cute Stamp Set
Elegant Butterfly Punch
Bitty Butterfly Punch
3/16" Corner Punch
Tempting Turquoise Classic stampin' pad

After the flower design was embossed, Tempting Turquoise ink was sponged onto  the center of the flower to add color depth.  Each butterfly was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS and cut using the appropriate punch.  Stampin' Dimensionals were used to attach the butterflies to the card.
