Today I’m sharing a card made by Judy Newsome, a member of my Candy Hearts team who also happens to be my sister. We had a team challenge recently and the theme was Monochromatic. Texture is important when making a monochromatic card. Judy made this lovely card in Crushed Curry using the Born to Shine stamp set, Detailed Bands Dies, and Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.


Here’s what she made:

Here’s what she did:

Cut and scored with her paper trimmer:

  • Crushed Curry card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Crushed Curry CS layer cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Born To Shine stamp set:

  • sentiment in Crushed Curry ink onto a scrap of Crushed Curry CS

Cut using the Detailed Bands Dies:

  • sentiment using the middle sized band die

Embossed Using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder:

  • Crushed Curry CS layer

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • band die cut glued onto the embossed layer, and any excess trimmed from two ends
  • sentiment glued inside the band
  • embossed layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
