Dragonfly Garden Monotone Greeting Card. Share it on a Sunday

 Good Morning Everyone,

It's Sunday, so that means we have a Share it on a Sunday for you. This week we are creating Monotone projects. Now, i'll be honest I have a tendency to overthink this theme and think it needs to be 'more' than it is. So I jumped in with both feet and just created, using a selection of brown tones and a splash of vanilla -  I love how this has turned out.


Crumb Cake Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Early Espresso Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 2 1/4"


Sahara Sand Card Stock

1pc -  5 7/8" x 2"

Very Vanilla Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"


Take the Crumb Cake card stock and fold along the score link. Stamp the butterfly cluster all over the card front in crumb cake.

Add a cluster to the large piece of very vanilla in the top right hand corner. Ink up the meadow flowers in early espresso ink and add the top half of it to the bottom left hand corner.

Stick this panel to the inside of the card.

Ink up the meadow flowers again in early espresso ink but this time stamp onto the strip of Sahara Sand. Stamp this towards the bottom of the strip. Stamp the sentiment Above and layer this strip to the early espresso piece. Adhere this to the card front towards the left.

Stamp a large Dragonfly onto a scrap of very Vanilla and cut out using the Dragonfly Punch. Once the ink is dry, add lots of wink of Stella to the wings. You will pull a small amount of the brown but that's ok. Cut out two smaller dragonflies in early espresso Cardstock and cover with more wink of Stella. 

Add all your dragonflies to the card front with dimensionals.

Finally add some wink of Stella to the Flowers
