Cream Tone on Tone Card

“For any crafter, using a tone-on-tone method of colour paper & cardstock can be quite daunting however, if you stay with the same colour family, you can create dramatic effects and very classic looks.” Ann-marie Vaux

Cut a piece of Ivory cardstock to 5.8inches 5.8inches and a second piece of Ivory cardstock to 5.6inchs x 5.6inches. Using your Embossing folder, emboss the smaller of the 2 layers.


Attach the larger layer you have just cut to size to the blank base card using 3D foam and then attach the embossed layer of cardstock to the card front using 3D foam.


Die cut 2 background pieces of Ivory cardstock in 2 different die background patterns.


Die cut lots of different flower elements in Ivory cardstock.


Build up the flowers together and use the Rolled Roses as centers to your flowers. Shape the petals with a Pokey Tool or Bone Folder, or even your fingers.


Cut 3 or 4 strips of Ivory card or paper approx 5mm wide x 6inches and cut in half, then wind around the Pokey Tool edge in a spiral shape to create paper curls – TIP: If you do not have a Pokey Tool, you could use a long needle (using it safely) or the other end of a Crochet hook etc.


Ink and stamp your Sentiment stamp using the Perfect Medium Ink on to a Ivory cardstock die cut label shape the add the Heat Embossing Powder, take off the excess and put back into the pot.


Using a small brush, brush away the excess Embossing Powder from the stamped label then heat emboss the stamped sentiment using your Heat Gun.


Add the 2 different background die cuts to the front of the card, I have used flat tape and added them at an angle.


Add the sentiment label to the front of the card using 3D foam and start adding the flowers around the label.


To add the paper curls, dip one end into wet glue and position the curl under the flower petals or under the body of the flower, using Tweezers can make this fiddly job easy. Also add a few Ivory pearls around the flowers to finish the card.


The finished card.
