I wanted to keep the card soft and monochromatic to mimic the symbolism of a dreamcatcher.

Die cut the dream catcher and butterfly from white cardstock. Cover all pieces with the Wink of Stella and allow to dry.

Prep the Dove Grey panel – Cut to 3 ¾” x 5 ¼”. Mix a little Distress Paint and water together on a craft mat or acrylic block. Use a small paint brush to apply splatters by holding the brush above the cardstock and tapping it lightly with your finger.  Allow to dry.  Add a few stamped “twinkles” using Little Bits in White ink.

Create sentiment – Rub vellum with powder tool to remove static.  Ink top half of sentiment with Versamark, stamp and heat emboss. Clean stamp. Rub vellum with powder tool again to remove static.  Ink bottom half of sentiment with Versamark, stamp and heat emboss. Hand cut into banner shape. Stitch to grey panel using sewing machine.

Assemble dreamcatcher using Multi Medium Matte.  Adhere to panel. Adhere butterfly to dreamcatcher and add rhinestones.

Adhere panel to card base.

  1. Dawn, your card is beautiful! I just never remember to do monochromatic cards and seeing this one you made had it back on my to-do list!

  2. I have only recently found this brand of stamps and I love them! They are gorgeous and so stylish and make my stamping look modern. Thank you for sharing with us Karen x

  3. Gorgeous Card! Love all white cards and this one is amazing! The gray background brings out all the details. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love the monochromatic look of your card, Dawn! The white on white/light grey is just so elegant. And the stitching gives a perfect finishing touch. I was wondering, though, why you stamped the greeting with the top half first and then the bottom half, since it looks like it’s all embossed with white embossing powder? Just curious. Anyway, great card! Tfs!

  5. Love the monochromatic design. That dream catcher die with the butterfly really make this card shine. Thanks for sharing.
