Monochrome Gemini...

Happy Tuesday,

I thought I would hare this card today as I love Monochrome and this is a perfect example of what can be achieved using just the Gemini dies.

I stared with a piece of black card which I cut the Perseus die into the bottom and top using one of the outline dies from the set.  Next I added a longer strip of black cut with one of the detail and one of the edge dies form the Cepheus triple Gemini die.  I backed this with a larger strip of white cut with just one of the outline dies to match.

I then added a wider piece of black cut with the other detail and cutting edge from the Cepheus set.

The central panel was made using the same set with the sentiment panel being cut with just the matching outline die its amazing how many different looks can be achieved with just one off the triple Gemini dies.

Enjoy...
