One of my “old favorite” techniques is to make monochromatic cards. This card uses the Dasher single stamp from the “Under $10” page in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.
Using only the Soft Suede color for the background paper and the ink, the fabulous design of the Dasher image really stands out. Don’t forget that if you *really* like the Dasher stamp, you can sign up for my Dazzling Dasher Christmas Card Class or “To Go” kit. You can get the Dasher stamp as part of the class for 40% off!
Here are the steps for this card:
- Fold a half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock in half. Stamp greeting from Many Merry Messages in Soft Suede ink on the inside.
- Use the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot die cut machine with the Petals-A-Plenty Impressions Folder to add the poinsettia pattern to a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Layer on the card.
- Stamp Dasher in Soft Suede ink on a Whisper White cardstock square. Use the 2-Way Glue Pen to add glue for the glitter. Shake Dazzling Diamonds Glitter over the glue, then tap off excess glitter. Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the Soft Suede background.
- Stamp the greeting from Warm Words in Soft Suede on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Punch with the Modern Label Punch and attach to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
