Ruby Red ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays cards uses lots of different Spellbinders in a layered look and they are all listed below for you.

It was a card that I didn't like as I started to make it.

But I persevered and added stuff .... and the more I added the more I liked it.  

The hearts have been added with foam tape and they really stand out from the card ...  which is not obvious in the photo.

The finishing touch was adding in the bow,  made from the ribbon that was one of the best bargains I have found in a long time.

I have created a double bow  Using a Bow Maker  and to the centre I have added a small rose from Wild Orchid Crafts

I made this card for no particular reason but I added a sentiment to it from Lili of the Valley   that says "Together Forever"  

Around the edge of the centre piece I have added in some red self adhesive gemstones from  The Hobby House

  5. So happy you continued adding to it, it is GORGEOUS!!!!! I would so love to know how you did the hearts!! hugs

  6. Wow! Love the card in red, but other colors could be nice for a wedding; this looks like a lovely Anniversary card to me. Thank you for showing us how to "mix-and-match" these Spellbinders dies. BethAnnM

  7. You are so talented! Your cards are always such a great source of inspiration. Well done Christina!

  8. I think it's beautiful! Perfect for a wedding, anniversary, Valentine's Day or even just to say to the significant other "I Love You." Don't you just love when a card is not going the way you like it but with a few changes it becomes gorgeous! Unfortunately for me lately, when I'm not satisfied and keep adding to it...I end up wrecking it so badly that it's beyond hope. LOL I have a whole box of boo boos that I can't bear to throw it and hold some kind of hope that they can be 'brought back to life.'

  9. Very striking Christina and clever use of all those Spellbinders. Pat x

  10. Wow Wow and three times WOW This is gorgeous Christina Perfect for so many occasions Valentines Wedding Anniversary (by changing the colour of the bow to suit) etc etc I love it xXx

  11. Hi Christina fantastic card love it I know what you mean when you say "Do I like this" the red bow makes it ,that was a great bargin you got.if you have time you might have a look at my blog please it is a work in progress,more work than progress lol

  12. Lovely card Christina, and I think it is better that you didn't like it when you first started out and then you end up with something that you do like. Hugs, Jen :-) xx
