Back to Red ...

Etsy Shop
Hi Everybody,

Traditional Red, Hearts and Roses ... what more can I say.  All the new cards that I added to Etsy have now been sold ... so got to get busy and make some more

I love everything about this card from the color to the flowers it is so romantic and that verse says such a lot.

It is from   Lili of the Valley   and is one of a set of inspirational verses.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts   and they are a mixture of Chrysanthemums, Roses and Carnations.

And as  always they are sparkled with fine glitter from Glitter Magic  just to give that added touch.

The background is the Botanical Swirls and there is a video to show you how to get the best from this type of extendable die.  I know I added it a few weeks ago but new people are coming to he blog everyday and may not have seen it or even know about it.

So have you made some Valentines Cards yet ??? and if not then maybe I have given you some ideas over the last few days.  But any one of these ideas can be adapted to make a card for any occasion and in any color you fancy.   Playing is such fun .... 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. I am falling short of words to tell you how beautiful this card is ! Its perfect! gorgeousss!!!

  2. Morning Christina,
    Well this one would certainly stand out in a crowd, not sure, for me it's a bit too busy and the bow is a just too big (not a fan of huge bow) sorry.

  3. Hi Christina,
    How I love visiting your blog to see all your wonderful creations and today is without exception. It's a stunning card love the red and white and the sentiment is lovely....also a great video many thanks.

    Love Sheila xx

  4. Stunning! Unfortunately for me, my Bigkick doesn't take kindly to the more intricate Spellbinders dies, so I have stopped using them. I love seeing your creations with them, though. Your work is awesome!

  5. This is a beautiful card, hopefully some special person will receive it, I just love looking at your inspirational work, thank you....luv Ursula

  6. Christine, can you please do a tutorial on how you tie such beautiful bows, I love ribbons but struggle to make such lovely bows. Many thanks....luv Ursula

  7. Hi Christina,
    So beautiful. Love the entire composition. Truly a work of art. It is no wonder they sell quickly. I have an idea...Why not do a giveaway with one of your cards...that would be wonderful.
