Add texture with monochromatic cards

Add texture with monochromatic cards! (Catherine Pooler Just a Note release)

Monochromatic cards can look stunning and effortless. But at times a design needs to be stepped up a notch. One way to do that is to add texture with monochromatic cards. I like to add texture with heat embossing in similar colour tones to add even more interest to your card design. This post features new products from the Just A Note Catherine Pooler Designs release but this technique can be used with any of your craft supplies.

Add texture with monchromatic cards with heat embossing

Start off by heat embossing a panel of white card stock with Dress Blue embossing glitter. Next, trim this panel down along with a panel of Nautical coloured cardstock. Adhere strips of various widths of a white cardbase. 

Add texture with monochromatic cards

To add more texture, heat emboss the outline blossoms from the Big Blossoms stamp set in Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder. To colour the florals, do the direct ink pad to paper method with Dress Blue, Fiesta Blue and Cummerbund ink. Use the Big Blossom coordinating dies to cut out the florals. 

Assembling the card

Start adhering the florals down along one side of the card base, using foam pads for varying depths in dimension. Allow the florals to overhang the card base, and trim off for a more natural-looking design. 

Stamp a sentiment from the One-Liner stamp set in Dress Blue ink and use a coordinating die from the Notes of Love die set to cut it out. Add this to the front and finish with a few matt gold sequins.

Mixed media Christmas card

I had a real urge to create a mixed media card today, and I wanted to do this with a Christmas card. It isn’t necessarily a traditional style Christmas card, more of a subtle nod to Christmas, other than the obvious sentiment on the front.
