Monochromatic Triple Slim Boho Card Collection
Let’s start with the Triple Slim Boho cards. I can’t believe how different this stencil looks in black and white in comparison to a multi-color design. I included a previous set of cards using more vibrant colors to show the two totally different looks. The Black & White combo creates a Monochromatic Abstract Vibe vs. the Colorful Art Deco Boho vibe.
To create the Monochromatic Collection, I used my Black and Grey Blender Brushes to stencil on Oreo, Poppy Seed and Oyster Inks. For the last layer, I used a Nuvo Spatula to apply a good amount of Silver Glitter Happy Medium. Once the Happy Medium dried, I cut the three Mini Slim Panels and adhered them a side & top folding Oreo Mini Slim Card Base.
For extra depth, I added a Sugar Cube Mini Slim Half Dot panel to one of the panels. Each card was finished with a Black and White heat embossed Group Text-Occasions Sentiment.
Black, White and Pops of Red Valentine
For my Valentine’s Day Card, I absolutely love pops of red against a black and white background especially when those pops of red can be a big & small heart. I started by stamping the Good Hearted Background with VersaMark Ink to Oreo Cardstock that I heat embossed with white embossing powder. With the background ready to go, I die cut the hearts from Cherry Pop Cardstock and the Snow Palls Polar Bear from Sugar Cube, Oreo & Sea Salt Cardstock.
Once I adhered the Polar Bear together with liquid adhesive, I added the face with the coordinating clear stamp & rosy cheeks with an R20 and R000 Copic Marker. Using foam adhesive I attached the polar bear to the big red heart. To finish the card, I added the Reverse Love Sentiment Strips that I foiled with Red Deco Foil. I just love how cute this card turned out!!
So there we are friends, I hope you enjoyed my Monochromatic Collection of Modern Slim Line Cards and my Cute Black & White with Pops of Red Valentine’s Day Card. Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day and Big Paper Hugs!
