Hello fellow stampers!

Lately, I have been attracted to monochromatic designs but haven't tried them very often.  I was going through my card lists and realized that I had forgotten to make anniversary cards for my brother and sister-in-law.  I needed something fairly quick so monochromatic seemed like the right way to go,

I made this card using a script background stamp, Make a Medallion from Stampin' Up, and Celebrate Thinlits from Tim Holtz.  I think the design is great for a couple.

Here's a couple tips:
When I make cards, I also like to include a matching envelope.  The envelope is a standard invitation size bought at an office supply store.

I die cut two "happy birthdays" and I used Stick-it paper to adhere them together.  It strengthens the words and makes it easier to attach to the card.

I hope you give this card a try.  What are your favorite monochromatic designs?

Happy Crafting!
