Card A Day Blog Post: Monochromatic Theme

I everyone! Wow, is it that time again so soon? I can't believe the summer is going too fast! This weeks theme on the Card A Day Blog is, monochromatic. My two favorite colors are blue and purple, and so for my card I chose purple.

To make my card, I chose three different shades of solid purple card stock, made a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, and with the lightest purple cardstock, I embossed a 5.25" x 4" piece with my Cuttlebug and the Cuttlebug embossing folder, Victoria, and adhered that to the front of my card base.

To embellish my card, I chose to use die cuts from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities set, Moroccan Accents. With the darkest purple card stock, I cut and embossed the circular medallion piece, and two of the corner pieces, adhering the medallion in the middle of the card, and the corner pieces on the top right corner, and the bottom left corner of my card. I then made the piece to add to the top of the medallion with the label die with the mid toned purple. For the middle of the tag, I used a purple paper flower that I had on hand, and a smaller lighter paper flower on top of that. For the very middle, I chose to use a purple rhinestone.

I really was pleased with how this card turned out. I am sending it to my partner from the mini dresser swap that I am in at A Lil Scrap of Heaven , which I will post the video of after she receives it. I don't want to spoil the surprise...:-)
