Happy Sunday all,
I am back with another challenge that I am entering over at Cas-ual Fridays. I accidentally came upon this challenge by going through my Google Feed. I wanted to create something for the gals that I throw darts with as an end of year "thank you". I try to give them all something handmade each year and since next Thursday will be our last night of league until the fall this seemed to be the perfect gift.
I created four Monogram cards for each of them with a card holder and then I had a little bit of paper left over and made one smaller version. I hate leftovers (and I am really trying to declutter my stash) and there was just enough paper to create that tiny notecard. I used a total of 8 sheets of paper for all of this.
The challenge is using at least two shades of gray. I found this paper among my massive paper pile and it seemed to be just perfect. I embossed each sheet with the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. This paper isn't very good and it cracks when you emboss it which actually gave it that two tone I was looking for. Adding the black and white ribbon to the center gave it enough "color" variation. I cut all the monogram tags with my cricut, sprayed some silver smooch, inked the edges and stamped their letter with the Filigree PaperStudios Alphabets in black. I love this stamp set! I also added some rhinestones to the cards to give it just enough "bling". I gotta have bling. On the smaller notecard I added some silver/black Studio G glitter glue to give that a little bit of bling also.
The notecard holder was also cut with my cricut and a simple black ribbon attached is a perfect way to keep those notecards together.
I hope you've enjoyed my two shades of gray project and I will see you all again soon.
As always, have a great day and God Bless.
