Classic Navy for All Occasions...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

I know that with the holidays coming up, I will need to have many thank you cards on-hand. This week's Mojo Monday sketch presented a perfect opportunity to get going on those, and I really loved the sketch because I thought it would make for a quick card (I wasn't disappointed as this one took about a half hour). For this card, I stamped my background stamp with white craft ink on navy cardstock, using a heat tool to speed up the drying process. The lovely butteryfly/bloom image looked nice and crisp stamped in Night of Navy ink on white paper, and I didn't want to detract from that with anything else. I popped up the top element to add a little dimension and finished off with a simple bow. I chose not to add an additional sentiment as I felt this card would be appropriate for many occasions...not just as a thank you!
