Just Because

Hi crafters! I know it looks like this card is black and white, but it is really a deep navy blue and white colour combo.  I started with a piece of coconut white card covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  Next I cut the Martha Background out of  a piece of  Deep Navy card.  I used the Martha Edger set to cut away the sides, leaving me a wide border strip.  I peeled the backing paper off of the sticky adhesive sheet and positioned the strip in the middle of the card.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to cover the exposed adhesive.  Next I cut two white zigzag wavy borders out of the Martha set and added them to the sides with mounting foam to raise them.  I cut the Joanie die in white and backed it in white then added it to the centre of the card with foam.  I used the Just Because Shadowed sentiment in Deep Navy on a white shadow,  I mounted it with foam in the middle of the Joanie die.  The card was completed with white and Deep Navy mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful just beautiful. I love to use this deep navy cardstock on my men cards it's really lovely either used to make the whole design pop or as a mat to take the full design. The more you showcase these dies the more I love to see the inspiration they bring.

Whatever your plans for the day/afternoon/ evening. ....

Good morning all.
A beauty again today. As you said Sue,it looks like black and white to me but that does not detract from the beauty of the card at all. I can imagine this one in either pastels or brights and would look like different cards.
Morning greetings to all.

Hello Sue,

A classy and sophisticated card in navy and white. I love the Martha background done in a dark color. It adds a bit of "regalness" to the design.
