Mostly monochromatic and matching envelope!


Good evening, just a quick post to show you a little CAS card I made based on the CASual fridays colour scheme which was 3 shades of one colour, plus brown; and also a matching envelope for the Young Crafters Unite challenge.

This is a simple little thank you card which uses my waltzingmouse teeny trees stamps. My brown is the sentiment, although I think I maybe should have heat embossed that to make it stand out more. The envelope looks quite cream in the photo, but it didn't look that obvious when I was making it, but the light in the dining room isn't great! I was going to do a orange/red autumn colour scheme, but wasn't sure if that counted as one colour, so stuck with green!
I think I'm definitely going to enter the Young Crafters Unite challenge again, as making the envelope match was easy, but it really makes the card seem a little more special!
