4 Cards ~ Monochromatic stamping ~ flowers & vellum

Monochromatic stamping makes for easy card making.  Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing four coordinating Mother's Day cards using stamping, ink, vellum and cardstock.  But, almost any stamp themes will work.


Sentiment:  Happy Mother's Day

Making a set of simple cards is easy using monochromatic stamping and changing out the background colors for the same card layout.



Helpful tips:

Here are helpful tips for making these coordinating cards using monochromatic stamping.  To begin, pre-cut and stamp 4 sentiment panels onto vellum or cardstock.  If preferred, add a white cardstock piece behind the vellum cuts.  Next, using a stamp positioning tool, stamp the background onto 4 different color cardstock panels using the coordinating ink color for each.  A similar look can be achieved by using watermark ink onto color cardstock.  Then, trim or die-cut the background panels to fit over the card base.  Finally, layer and assemble each card with the same lace trim and embellishments.



This is another look at the set.


I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
