Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Color Challenge - Boho Blue

Welcome back to the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Color Challenge, with Week 3's color, Boho Blue. I love how soft and pretty this beautiful blue is to create with and today I chose to create a Sympathy card design using one of the designs from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper, one of the Level 1 Rewards you can earn free with a qualifying $50 order during Sale-a-bration.
Sympathy cards are probably the hardest card design for me to create. They are so personal and I try to design a card that will provide comfort during a difficult time. For today's card design, I used the monochromatic Boho Blue design from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper for the card background because it reminded me of the sky. I love the texture the watercolor background adds to the design, kind of like a moody sky before a storm. The butterfly die cut I chose to use for the focal image is from the new Paper Butterfly Accents in the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. I created a watercolor wash look using a drop of Boho Blue ink mixed with Clear Wink of Stella to paint the butterfly and to give it that pretty shimmer and soft color. I love how this design turned out and I hope it provides comfort to the person receiving it.

My vision for this card design was a pretty pale blue butterfly floating amongst the clouds. The designer series paper created the perfect background for the card design and I added a Boho Blue cardstock circle that I embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder to create the textured background for the focal image. I punched out two clouds from Basic White cardstock and gently added some Boho Blue Classic ink around the outside edges using a Blending Brush to add definition. I attached the top cloud to the embossed circle with adhesive and then added the second cloud with Stampin' Dimensionals so that it slightly overlaps the bottom cloud. I attached the water colored butterfly to the top cloud, centering it at a slight angle. To add some subtle bling, I added three Boho Blue Dots to the center of the butterfly.
For the sentiment label, I stamped the sentiment image from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set with Boho Blue Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and punched it out with the coordinating Heartfelt Hexagon Punch. I also punched out a label from Boho Blue cardstock and cut it in half and attached it behind the sentiment label to create a narrow frame. I added a piece of the Boho Blue Texured Ribbon to the card front, towards the bottom right corner and added the sentiment label over the top with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the focal image about the sentiment and slightly to the left, adhering it to the card front to complete the card design. I love how this card design showcases the variations you can get with this beautiful color using a variety of coordinating products. So what do you think? Are you ready to give Boho Blue a try?
