It’s a May Mixed up Monotone Monday Morning! Phew! Glad I got that out! I am not feeling blue….but the card I made is! Blue is one one my favorite colors and I’ve done cards that are monochromatic before, in fact it was almost exactly a year ago. You can see one here in this post Monotone Monday – Petals & More. For this card I used a piece of retired Needlepoint Designer Series Paper with the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.
Who said poppies had to be red? To me this looks like a field of wild flowers. This card is super easy….just one stamp and a little bit of coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Light & Dark Balmy Blue Markers. Throw a few layers of cardstock on for matting and you are done. And check out that pretty envelope too!
If you would like to make this card, this is what you will need:
- Painted Poppies Stamp Set
- Peaceful Moments Stamp Set (sentiment)
- Night of Navy Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; Score and fold at 4 1/4”, plus a piece cut 3 1/2” x 4 1/2”
- Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper – Cut 5 1/4” x 4” and a strip cut 1/4” x 4”
- Balmy Blue Cardstock – Cut 3 1/4” x 4 1/4”
- Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 3 1/8” x 4 1/8”, plus a piece cut 5 1/4” x 4” (inside)
- Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Night of Navy
- Stampin’ Blends Markers: Light & Dark Night of Navy
- Adhesive: Snail or Multipurpose Liquid Glue
- Optional: Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper cut 2 1/4” x 6” (for envelope flap)
And don’t forget to stamp the inside too!
Have a great week!
And if blue poppies turned wildflowers are NOT your things….then here is the same card, but with a Poppy Parade vibe.
