Going Monochrome

I made an anniversary card and chose to use just shades of green for the card. My main panel was made with an Altenew 3-D embossing folder called Floating Foliage. I used inks from the Rubbernecker Color Fuse line for my card. I also used the Altenew Mix and Match Frames die set. And, the sentiment is from the Altenew Stunning Cosmos set and after stamping it I cut it out with an old Fiskers Deckle Edge scissors. I finished by adding  a white panel inside the card.



I just love this and the shades of green are so complimentary to each other. I guess you can tell I like that Mix and Match Die set as I seem to use it with almost all of the cards I make lately. I am so happy I purchased it now.

Well, I think that might be all I do this week unless the crafting bug hits me again. I do know I am only one card away from reaching my goal of 100 Christmas cards so I might finish that up. And, if I do go over the goal I can always use them for next year.

Take care everyone and thanks for the visits.

God bless, Verna

I love that embossing folder. They have sure come into their own and there are such beautiful ones. This is a lovely card with such gorgeous colors. Wow, 99 Christmas cards on the wall. Sorry, I couldn't resist! But that is a wonderful accomplishment and I would try to add that one more to round it out. Good for you.
