Monochromatic Layered Cards ~ by Sarah

Hi Meg's Garden friends! Sarah here to share a set of simple, monochromatic, layered cards I created using the beautiful Chantilly Cream paper collection, along with some lace and ribbon from the Meg's Garden store!
I used the square pages from the Chantilly Cream Papercraft Pack as the base to build up the cards and cut the rectangular strips from the Papercraft Pack into tags, which I embellished with some lace and ribbon. I added pieces cut from other pages in the 12x12 and Papercraft Pack along with a doily from my stash to create the layers and finished off the layering with cut-outs from the Cut & Create Page and the Papercraft Pack.  Finally, I splattered the cards with some white gesso and watered down Distress Reinker in Vintage Photo. Here are a few close-ups!
Thanks for stopping by the Meg's Garden Blog today!
