Blue Monochrome from Susan

This beautiful Christmas card is from Susan one of our DT (her blog).  What a wonderful way to create a monochromatic (all shades of the same colour) card.  Susan has used Co'Ordinates cardstock which she ran through a SU embossing folder then embossed to reveal another shade of blue. Cut the embossed panel into three and attached to the front of the card.  Then added some bling and a ribbon and a small stamped sentiment....which we do allow.  However we do like stamp sentiments kept to a minimum as you will see in our rules here.

You can enter your monochromatic paper creations here you have until Friday, 30th November.

Isn't this such a pretty Christmas card from JanR.  JanR has used the Poinsettia die from Spellbinder and glittery Thickers.  Be sure to visit JanR's blog to find out more about this card.

Cathy has been busy too with her metallic papers which were hand embossed and then hand cut. The flowers are paper punched and bling added to the centre.  Another beautiful card....again be sure to check out Cathy's blog here.

Merry has created this Christmas card by dragging out all the green Bazzill cardstock she owns.  Cut into 1cm wide strips then cut into the shape of a Christmas Tree.  Added a star sticker and sentiment.
