Monochromatic Collage Card and Tutorial


Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Peachy Keen Stamps and I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a monochromatic collage card. 

Here is a picture of the supplies I used:
Copic Markers- C0 and C3
Paper Trimmer

You will cut the layers for your card
Standard A2 Card Base- 4 1/4 X 5 1/2-White
Next layer will be slightly smaller than card base - Gray
4 X 5 1/4- Black
3 3/4 X 5- White

Next you are going to cut apart your inside white mat.
 With the 5 inch side up, cut at 3 1/4 inches. Then turn that piece and cut at 2 1/2 inches. This will leave you with a 2 1/2 X 3 1/4 and a 1 1/4 X 3 1/4
The next layer you will line up with the 3 3/4 inch side up and cut at 1 1/2 inches. 
This will leave you with a 1 1/2 X 1 3/4 and 2 1/4 X 1 3/4

Now you will stamp the images onto the white pieces and color  the images with the gray Copic markers.

All that's left to do is to assemble your card
Carefully line up your mat pieces on the black mat making sure that there is an even line around all the edges and glue down.
Next, glue onto the gray mat and repeat onto the white card base. 

And there you have it! A fun monochromatic collage card!
I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial today and have inspired you to try one of these yourself.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
