Hello, hello.....Penny here today with one of my favorite style of cards to make. Monochromatic!  I needed a Sympathy card and fast, so staying in the same color family is always easy. For a bit of interest, add a die cut embellishment that is just a few shades lighter or darker....like the bird in my example.


And here we go:


Start with a White cardstock base, then start building on.




Light Gray cardstock is the main background. I then stamped a sentiment from the Prayers Sentiment set in the bottom corner with a Dark Gray ink. I also embossed around the card front with a scoring board...gives it just a little something, something!




Die cut Bird Branch Circle Frame from Light Gray and Very Light Gray cardstocks. Adhere together slightly off center, then to the card front. I die cut 2 additional birds and popped them up with foam adhesive.




I really love how simple this card is to make, yet it provides such an impact to the receiver.


Happy crafting,
