Week 30 Colour Creations Showcase - Night of Navy


Welcome everyone and a Happy New Year to you all.

Yes we are back and carrying on where we left off on the 16th December 2020. This week our colour is Night of Navy.  Being part of the Neutrals collection this beautiful navy blue is just perfect to a male card. So with that in mind I decided I would use the Well Suited Bundle and even though I made this card before Christmas as my Husbands birthday was on the 20th, I thought this would be great to this weeks project as well.

Not that I see my husband in a suit very often. But this just seemed the right time to give him a hint (when you take me out somewhere special wear a suit)   Not going to happen.

I used the Night of Navy for that base of the card as well as the shirt and the DSP from the same suite for the tie and jacket. The carnation I made using the layering circles. I cut 5 circles and then wet them and scrunched them up then laid them flat before using a brad to hold them all together. I then used a marker to give the edges of the flowers some colour and then sprayed them with water once again and scrunched them up again leaving them to dry in that shape.

I stamped the inside using Night of Navy using the bow ties and my sentiment from the same set and then coloured in the bow ties using Balmy Blue. As this card was made before the showcase I can tell you he really loved it. So I was really happy about that.

You will find this bundle in the new January - June 2021 Mini Catalogue along with so many other beautiful new sets. If you would like to purchase the items used in this project please give me a Call, Email or PM me so that I can help you with your purchase.

  1. What a great card Di - I love the hint for your hubbie and the carnation! Thank you for your Night of Navy inspiration this week and good luck with your house move xx

  2. I really like how you stamped the sentiment directly onto the DSP, Di. Great card for hubby’s birthday, even if he isn’t likely to wear a suit any time soon!

  3. I love your suit card. The carnation looks fabulous.

  4. This is such a cool card, Diane! The carnation looks spectacular!

  5. Now that is one stylish suit and the addition of the carnation to boot!! Very clever Di.
