Mastering Monochrome: Elevate Your Cardmaking with This Elegant Technique (Video)

White card with Monochromatic raised focal point

Are you ready to take your cardmaking to the next level? In this blog post, we’re diving into the world of monochrome elegance with a stunning technique that will add depth and sophistication to your creations.

In today’s project, we’re featuring the Simply Zinnia stamp set and coordinating Dies from Stampin Up to create a beautiful monochromatic focal point on an elegant white card base. By layering a coordinating die-cut flower over the top of some monochromatic squares, we’ll create a unique and eye-catching design that’s sure to impress.

This project is the BONUS card included in my May Cultivated Creativity DIY paper crafting kit, and I’m excited to share it with you as a thank you for your support. Watch the video tutorial below to see how you can create this beautiful card at home.
