Technique Tuesday - Monochromatic Cards - Lacy & Lovely

I work with 2 colors when creating this style card.
Here of course, Pistachio Pudding from the blog hop, and Whisper White.
This is a 4" x 4" card.  It could easily be done as an A2 type card as shown below.
I placed a clay flower in the center of these. 
Stampin' Up! now has flower and button molds to use with air dry clay.
For a 4" square card.
Pistachio Pudding:
4" x 8" base score at 4"
3 1/8" x 3 1/8" layer
Whisper White
3.75" x 3.75" layer to stamp background on.
2.5" 2.5" layer to stamp single image and cut into 4 sections.
Lacy & Lovely stamp set
Pistachio Pudding ink
Very Vintage Designer Button or clay flower for center.
Bakers Twine
Tip: Dye White Baker's Twine any color by running twine over ink pad while pressing down on twine with scrap paper.
How tos:
1.  Stamp around edges of Whisper White 3.75" square layer with smaller images from Lacy & Lovely.
2. Stamp single image on 2.5" square.
3. Cut in half and then cut each half in half again. 
Tip: As I cut these, I lay them where they will go on the 3" Pistachio Pudding square.
Then I get them in the right order when I attach them.

4. Attach button or clay flower to center spot.  Attach card section onto stamped 3.75" square.
Attach to card base.
Happy stamping!
