This month’s theme for the Kreator’s Blog Hop is “monochromatic green.”
I really enjoyed this requirement, because green is one of my favorite colors, and I like creating with one color.
Nature always looks good in green, so I began with the Mountain Air Stamp Set. I stamped one plain mountain range in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and a second one in Mossy Meadow Ink, on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used a Majestic Mountain Die for cutting. In addition, I cut the sides of the mountain ranges with the largest, Stitched Rectangles Die.
Next, I stamped the row of trees in Mossy Meadow Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used its die for cutting. This die cuts along the top of the trees, while leaving the bottom uncut. I left a couple inches below the trees, and used the largest, Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting the sides and bottom.
Once I had my three Majestic Mountain die-cuts, I arranged them on Whisper White Cardstock that I cut with the largest, Stitched Rectangles Die, and embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. I glued the mountains flat, and raised the tree portion on Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, “What a difference one single life makes.” I used two Ornate Frames Dies for cutting the sentiment and the frame.
For a little sparkle, I tossed on a few Snowflake Sequins.
The sentiment is continued on the inside with “happy birthday,” also from the Timeless Tulips stamp set. And, I decorated the inside with a favorite Majestic Mountains tree, cut from Old Olive Cardstock.
Finally, I decorated the envelope flap with a stripe from Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper.
TIP: Cut a piece of DSP 5 3/4″ by 2 1/4″, add a thin line of Liquid Glue around the edge of the flap, attach the DSP, and trim the excess using the flap as a template.
The supplies I used are in my Product List below, so click on the pictures, and have fun shopping. My Host Code gift for the month of March is Pearl Basic Jewels (140 total pearls). If you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, I will send you the Pearls in April.
I hope you enjoyed today’s blog hop post, and will continue hopping for more monochromatic inspiration.
