Navy and Taupe Card Set

This Specialty Designer Series Paper is called Affectionately Yours.  It has a variety of colors, including two sheets that have metallic copper in it (which makes it a specialty paper.)  One of the sheets is what I have used here with Night of Navy and Tip Top Taupe - a beautiful floral with only 2 colors, even though the rest of the pack is very colorful.   Here is the pack ~

And here is the card that I started this little collection with ~

I CASEd a card that I found online, the original by Tracy Elsom.  I changed it ever so slightly with some extra stamps and a touch of sparkle.

From there I made the 3 x 3's that you saw above.  Instead of stamping the sentiments on Tip Top Taupe, which seemed a little dark, I stamped them on Sahara Sand and cut them to fit.  Here they are again, individually ~

A Little Thanks is from One Big Meaning.

Thank you is from Happy Happenings.

For You is from Birthday Blooms. I punched the sentiment out with the 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle Punch.  I sponged around the edges then backed it with the same punch from Night of Navy and offset the two.

I layered the inside of the large card to match the front, but left the sentiment off until I decide its purpose.

I love the use of navy in the new designer series papers this year.  You just might see a lot of it on Karen's Stampin' Habit!

Have a great weekend!  Let me know if I can help you with any purchases, questions, or instructions.  I will get back to you right away with any help I can offer.

Stampin' Hugs,
