Monochromatic Cards for The Paper Players

Hello and happy Sunday! It's time for another challenge at The Paper Players. This week the challenge theme is Clean and Simple Monochromatic hosted by Sandy. I love making monochromatic cards and ended up making two cards for this challenge. The first one (see below) is a Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe color scheme with butterflies. My second card (at left) was made using my favorite Green Monochromatic colors. The green colors used are: Garden Green, Pistachio Pudding and Wild Wasabi. I would love it if you would let me know which one you like better? My hubby picked the coral card and you'll notice I still chose to share the green card. However, this does not mean I always do the opposite of what he says (although he would debate this topic). In the end I decided to share both cards.  I hope you enjoy them and will make your own monochromatic card to share at The Paper Players (click here). The challenge is open through Friday, July 25th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!


Stampin' Up! stamp sets used include: Mixed Bunch, Blooming with Kindness and Papillon Potpourri. The Hey There sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin kit that I altered, it used to say Hey There Friend.

  4. Thank you for the lovely card. Your green card has inspired me to adapt it for some teabag fold medallions I have just made. I will post it and the rest of my teabag fold cards in a few days!

  10. Hello, Andrea - I wanted to pop in and say hello! Thank you for your sweet comment today! I wanted to come over and see what you've been up to - both of these monochromatic cards are beautiful, but I think I prefer the green one best. I love the half-circle and the doily design - a very unique looking card! The coral one is gorgeous too! Hope you have been well, my friend! Take care!
