Today’s CAS monochromatic card can be made in any color and can be used for any occasion – check it out!

Today’s post is so perfect to close our our month of clean and simple cards using bright colors. This design for a quick and easy, CAS monochromatic card is also ideal because, thanks to the custom inking, you can make this in any color story you love and it will always be spectacular.

Let’s see how Dawn created her luscious coloring so we can reproduce this look at home.

Dawn started by cutting a piece of white card stock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. She then placed our circles die in the upper right hand corner and cut out the design from the panel.

Then, using her stamp positioner, Dawn stamped her sentiment from our Kittie Says Friends set in Magenta Color Fuse Ink from Set #6 in the lower left hand corner.

Because she was using her stamp positioner, Dawn was able to re-ink and re-stamp the sentiment a few times to create a very deep, rich impression.

Dawn now cut another piece of white card stock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the peek-through background. To create her beautiful purple ombre, she started inking Lilac Color Fuse Ink at the top and gradually worked her way down the panel to Magenta at the bottom. PRO TIP: Dawn repeatedly placed her die cut panel over the top of where she was inking to be able to see exactly how her ombre would look through the circles.

Then, to make her perfectly color coordinated embellishment butterflies, Dawn took a scrap of white card stock and blended more Magenta Color Fuse Ink all over it.

When she had the coverage she wanted, she used our small butterflies die to cut out her sweet little shapes.

You can see how creating these custom colored papers with your inks means you get the perfect cohesion of color when you are making a monochromatic card.

To finish her card, Dawn adhered her die cut panel over her inked panel with her tape runner and then adhered that to a card base. She added a few of her custom butterflies to her card front with some little dabs of liquid glue and it was ready to go!
