Happy Friday! Today is Navy Day - a day to salute all of the women and men who have served, both past and present, in the United States Navy. The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. To celebrate, I asked my fellow designers to create projects featuring the color Night of Navy for our Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog.
Here is my card - I CASE'd the layout of the heart card from the back cover of the Annual Catalog (see below).
I wanted to use a large element and immediately thought of the big butterfly thinlit that I cut out with my Big Shot.
Here's a close-up of the sentiment of the card. To add a little interest to the butterfly I cut out a solid piece after tracing the butterfly onto whisper white card stock and stamped it with the flourish image from the Timeless Textures stamp (the same as on the inside of the card). The strip at the bottom was supposed to look like a strip of washi tape - I used the grid image from the stamp set for that. And I also added some dots in the upper right corner using another image from that set. The "Thank You" sentiment is from the One Big Meaning set - I absolutely love the font! I really like how this card turned out... don't forget to look to your Stampin' Up! catalogs for great card layouts and ideas!!
