Colour Inspiration - Navy and Grey Card details

Before I stamped the repeating stripped background, I stamped a selection of different size 'bubbles' with Navy ink onto white card-stock. The background was stamped with Grey ink and I masked the 'bubbles' when printing over them. To find out how to mask your stamps, check out this post here.

I die cut several 'Cheer's out of matching Navy card stock. These were use to build a dimensional sentiment using a glue pen to adhere the die cuts together. In addition, I created a white offset shadow, by gluing a white die-cut to the bottom of the stack slightly offset to one side. 

 The secondary sentiment was stamped onto a strip of matching card-stock and heat embossed in white. To match the dimension of the primary sentiment, I foam mounted this onto the card design. 

Using the round 'bubbles' stamp, I stamped additional prints onto scrap white card-stock. Once I had fussy cut these out, I foam mounted onto the card design as embellishments. 

Lastly, I foam mounted the whole card design onto the card base, allowing a 1/8" border to allow the design to pop! I just love how the circles on the card, look like bubbles of fizz in a drink. Matches well with the 'Cheer's sentiment don't you think?!
