A Little Red

Hi everyone,


It’s Wednesday so we are all half way through the week and on the down hill slide to the weekend – Fabulous!


Now the card that I want to share with you has been inspired by the sketch I found at Seems A Little Sketchy. 


My first thoughts were to use some lace as well with the sketch but when I started to create the card things just took another path.


I love a Black, White and Red combo so I have used Basic Black card stock for the base of my card with some Real Red and Whisper White.


I have been having so much fun heat embossing that dusted off the heat gun and found the embossing powder once more and embossed the swirl pattern from the Creative Element stamp set on one part of the Whisper White cardstock.


My sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and has been stamped on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Labels Framelits.


So I may not have used Lace but I still added some swirls which were created using the Swirls Scribbles Die. 


Once more I have made my own layered flowers by crushing and folding some punch flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch.


Oh yeah cannot forget some bling!


Here is my card:






Stamp set: Creative Elements, Word Play

Card: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, VersaFine Black

Accessories:  Boho Blossom Punch, Labels Collections Framelits, Swirls Scribbles Die, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive









and the sketch is below, I have changed it a little :




I love how the embossing turned out – I think I am going to have to get that heat tool out a bit more :)

It's such an elegant card. No need to add lace as the beautiful swirls do the job! I alwys seem to end up with a quite different design than what I had in mind when I started, but I think it's just the way it is when creativity kicks in...

Very elegant card but I'm not sure it will qualify for our babies or birthday challenge at Fashionista as there is no happy birthday or baby on it.
