Hello Friend in Grey (Monochrome Card)

I love the theme from CASual Friday this time...Shades of Grey... but I have to think much which Image I should Put on the Grey card...as I know if I made a card I never choose grey and now I have a challenge for me self to make a card using the grey card base.

I choose Mi Casa stamp sets from Hero Arts. I chose then the House, the tree and the little bird.

Stamped it on the dark grey paper with Versamark clear ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then I have an Idea how about if I make a Hole in the middle of the Soft (light) grey card base? I glued the Dark Grey paper on the other side of the card base.

Then I stamped the Friend Definition Cling Stamp from Hero Arts with grey ink on the card base. I was forgot to covered the inside area of the card...:-) LOL also now the circle inside the card also stamped with Friend Definition stamp :-). The Sentiment also Hero Arts and I embossed it with white embossing powder.

This card dedicated for a friend who has "a sleep test in the hospital".... hope he will get a good result and hope he would be glad if he come back home and see his card on his post box :)

The request from the challenge on the CASual Friday is using at least 2 shades of grey...in this is Foto you can see between dark grey, soft grey and the black paper...I choose only the dark grey and the soft (light) grey on my card..

Black paper, dark grey and light grey paper.

  8. Hi Monika,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comment.

    Your cards are lovely and so happy to have found your blog. Incase you are interested I run an Anything goes linkup at Just keep on creating, hope you can play along :)

  9. This really is lovely Monika - the middle of your card (where you forgot to cover the aperture) is a 'happy accident'. It is such an unusual creation. Absolutely wonderful - wunderbar!!! Thank you for the lovely comments on my card.

    Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  10. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog from MIM!

    This is great I really like the "mistake" you made not covering up the aperture in the card, I think the text stamp being in the circle on the inside is really effective!
