Red, white and...PINK!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #196 Seeing Red
Use red (pink or white)

This Weeks Sponsor
Jaded Blossom

 Winner will receive the Got Candy stamp set.
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. I hope that you will all visit FCCB and join in this week's challenge.

For my project this week I used CCR. Love Struck 2010 was the "cut it free for a week" cartridge and I took advantage of that and made a couple of cuts specifically for this week's project. I'm not a Valentine's Day fan so I would probably never buy this cartridge. It was nice to have access to it when I needed to use it!

The cut from Love Struck is the border on the left. I used Glossy Accents on the red to make it stand out a bit more. (The red layer on the card and the banner flags is the same paper without it.) I embossed the background of the stamped image with white embossing powder and glossy accents on the heart. That piece is on foam tape. There is a piece of ribbon behind the border to help it stand out . It's easier to see in person than in the picture.

  1. Very cute border! Glad you shared this; I looked at the free cut and totally missed that! Also love the diamond theme with the hearts.

  2. Wow-I love your glossy hearts! And I honestly thought that was patterned paper on the single heart background-great job!

  3. How adorable is this card!!! I have been wanting to use that border for so long. Maybe this will give me some inspiration. Love the embossing. Faith
