Red and White

Hi Everybody,

This card is a long way from the neutral ones I featured yesterday and is a very bright and busy red.
 It has lots of layers to it and is much better in real life than the picture shows.

All the Spellbinders used will be BOLD  so that you will know what has been used.

So starting from the base this is what I have used....

The white base has been embossed with the A4 folder Garden Lattice and I have  double layered  this onto red and then white card.

I have then cut the 5 x 7  Enchanted Labels 28 in red matted it to white and then red again and added it to the card front with foam tape to raise it up.

Red Organza ribbon has been wrapped around before adding these layers to the base card.

The next layer is a hand created background that is stamped using  one of the new colours from Distress inks  and this is Festive Berries.

It was then cut from A2 Filigree Delight  which is embossed  with the Lattice folder and then matted to red and then white card.

The  hearts have been cut from the Vines of Passion die which is a two part set and the centre of the filigree has been filled with glitter... and added with even more foam tape to give definition.

A large pearl is in the centre of the bow to hide the knot and there you have it ..... not a card you can miss really as it is so vibrant.

Hugs xx


  1. Lovely card Christina. A lot of work, no doubt, with all the layering but well worth it. I love the vines of passion die and hope to be able to buy it before too long. Pat x

  3. Breathtaking! Love it in red for Valentine's Day, but I would also think it will be beautiful for a wedding or anniversary, or in some more muted colors. Thank you for all the inspiration that you provide. BethAnn M.
