Color Monday - Navy & Gold

Today's card is a quick card that makes use of some of the supplies I've had in my crafty stash for a while now.

I started by creating a striped panel by alternating a piece of patterned paper and navy cardstock. Each strip was cut to ½" thick and glued onto some thin cardstock. I then trimmed it down and die-cut a circle near the top.

I lined a Kraft top-folding A2 card base (4¼x5½") with a piece of white cardstock that measured ¼" less. I trimmed my patterned piece to measure ¼" less than that, and adhered everything together using my standard adhesive and foam tape.

I got a set of great puffy stickers I've been meaning to use, so I adhered a typewriter to the middle of the circle and added a red heart to its paper.

I die-cut some white cardstock with Avery Elle's Just a Note die and used a gold gel pen to color it in gold. I adhered it to the card, then drew in a little heart with the same gel pen.

Thanks for reading!

    1. I ought to make more posts about working from my stash. I've been doing much of that lately and really enjoying it. :)
