I am trying to make several Valentine's and love-themed cards for Operation Write Home this month, and I've been challenging myself to use colors other than the traditional red/pink/white combinations. Today's card uses navy blue and white, although in the picture the navy blue looks more like black. I used a very special stamp for the sentiment on this card. It's a stamp I used for my wedding several years ago, and it is still one of my favorite stamps. I like to use it for weddings as well as love cards, and I'm happy to have a reason to ink it up again!
Here's my card:
I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on white card stock, but the white was just too stark against the background, so I sponged Not Quite Navy chalk over that piece. I like it much better that way. I added white and Night of Navy card stock layers behind the sentiment to really help it stand out. I considered adding embellishments but felt that if I left it as is, it could be used for a man or a woman.
I like this sentiment so much that I plan to make a few more OWH cards with it using other papers and colors (and maybe I'll make a "girly" one so I can add a little bling!).
I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
