Seeing GREEN yet?

Happy Saturday! We have a bonus post for you today. For some reason I missed this when doing our St Paddy’s day layouts but it is too fabulous not to share.

The great thing about our Cardstock, and I know I sound like a broken record, but you can create a monochromatic layout so easy with just some simple embossing like Kate Nolan-Denham did here:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you hear the saying “go green” I am sure you don’t think of creating a monochromatic layout using only cardstock, but I sure did! I went green with Envy Core’dinations Cardstock.  By using techniques such as embossing, crinkling, sanding and a little bit of paint, I was able to add interest and dimension to my layout without adding another color.

I chose Envy as my monochromatic color because it was the perfect match to the background in my picture of Lily and her friends. I cut and snipped the Envy cardstock in random sizes. Then I embossed & crinkled & sanded the cardstock pieces to give a patterned paper appearance.

I chose a large crinkled piece my cardstock in which to paint my sentiment.  I love how the plain white craft paint just pops on this green!

Don’t be afraid to “go green” on your next layout. Core’dinations Cardstock comes in every green imaginable, so I know there is one just perfect for you!  ~Kate
