Good Things with mark11960192_10206967016669302_1389074176069604885_n

Can you Case It is challenging you this week to create a project with browns, greens and neutrals. I chose to focus on the brown palette using Stampin’ Up!’s Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.

I wanted a clean, simple layout. That’s easily accomplished with a monochromatic card like this one. But clean, simple and monochromatic needn’t be flat and boring. There are subtle ways to add a bit of pop and panache. In this card:

  • IMG_6651 with markThe main image is offset,
  • The tree and ground are “sparkled” with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to simulate snow and ice (as shown better in the photo on the right), and
  • Sequins were added for balance and the unexpected bling.

Thanks for stopping by Amy’s Inklings. Be sure to also stop by the Can You Case It website to see what other stampers are submitting. I encourage you to submit your project online too! And when you do, be sure to check back here and leave a message for me. I’d love to see what you create!
