If this is a Christmas post, then I'm probably playing over at Jingle Belles Rock. This fortnight's challenge is to use red as the predominant color on our cards. I can do this.
I went through my cache of holiday 6x6 pads - a sadly large collection for someone who doesn't make too many holiday cards, and settled on my Basic Grey Nordic Holiday pack. Then I rummaged through my collection of neglected holiday stamps and dies and selected a die set from WPlus9 that I might have used once. This is what came out:
I love that green paper, and it has red dots, so: RED. I was afraid the red paper I used for the die-cut words was too busy to work, and I still think it might be, but it is what it is.
I die-cut the three words many times out of a scrap of cream card stock that was laying next to my guillotine cutter, and now the card stock is gone. I got six cuts of each word, and since stacking them together would have reached to the moon, I only used three, and made a second card:
Again with the busy, but I think it's okay. The hearts in the centers of the words were cut from scraps of the cream card stock I used for the layers, and I glittered them with my Wink of Stella clear pen. They are very shiny in real live.
NO STAMPING here - all die-cutting and glue. I feel like I cheated, though I did use 4 sheets of pretty paper and something from next to the paper cutter, so there's that. And I have two more holiday cards for my stash! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
PS: I just noticed there IS a heart in the die set, so that means mine is lost. :(
