Camp Create: Sweet Chocolate
Well, here's my last card for the final session of Camp Create by My Favorite Things! It's for the Monochromatic Magic challenge. I had a difficult time choosing which color to use until I saw the Chocolate Sentiments stamp set in my stash. It went together pretty quickly after that!
Naturally, I selected to use several shades of brown for my monochromatic color scheme. I stamped the circle image on Close to Cocoa cardstock with the matching ink in a repeating pattern. I stamped the main sentiment on Chocolate Chip cardstock, again with matching ink, and cut it with a Fishtail Flags STAX die. I also cut some brown polka dot patterned paper with the same die and layered them together. I matted everything on Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. For a final touch, I added Brownstone glitter to the heart in the sentiment.
I love that the glitter pops even though it still stays within the monochromatic design. You know how I love sparkle! This would work great for a masculine Valentine's Day card or some other occasion. My teenage son really liked it. :) Here's my final Camp Create badge. It's been fun!
