Monocromatic Thank You Card

I wanted to make monocromatic card. I love the monocromatic look and the key to pulling it off is using texture. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folders the Swiss Dot and Swirls. This was my first attempt at using embossing powder (I got some for Christmas) The glitter embossing powder was a little harder to see if it was melting and of course I tried to contain the glitter as much as possible but it was all over my kitchen table. I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped circle. The only thing I don't like is the "Thanks" I feel it was a little too informal for the card, but it was the only stamp I had that would fit in the circle. Lastly, I used the wonderful Martha Stewart branch punch.I love that punch and try to use it when ever I can. I hope this card will inspire you to try a monocromatic card. I am going to try to make some other cards with some other colors.

I used a swirly stamp and randomly stamped around the scalloped circle and embossed it.
