Sympathy Hearts

 I assumed and expected a monochromatic look to be dull, boring, and unimaginative. Yet, when I was challenged to make a monochromatic card, I found it challenging and exciting. What do you think?

   Golden Afternoon

   Melon Mambo A-2, 3-5/8 x 3-3/4
   Melon Mambo DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Melon Mambo


   1/8" Melon Mambo Taffeta Ribbon
   Brights Enamel Shapes (Melon Mambo)
   Stamparatus or MISTI
   Glue Dots
   Fast Fuse

First, I looked through my accessories, ribbons, and DSP. I found Melon Mambo to be a winner.

Next, I decided on a tool, embossing folder, or die cut that would add some interest to my card. I decided to dust off my crimper and give it some love. So, I ran the DSP through the crimper. 

I stamped my images onto the 3-5/8 x 3-3/4" panel of Melon Mambo. I used my MISTI to make sure I could stamp the images and sentiment several times. The stamparatus will do the same job.

I adhered this panel to the top portion of my DSP using glue dots.

I tied the ribbon on the bottom part of the panel. 

I then adhered it to the card base using my fast fuse.

Lastly, I added the three hearts and the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
