CD 387 - Bring on the Red!

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #387!

This week, the focus is on the colour red - any shades of red are fine but only black and white may be used with the shades of red - no other colours are permitted. 

I pulled out my red glitter paper and used that for the base of my card. A stitched rectangle frame was die cut for both the outline of the card and the outline of the sentiment. I adhered a laser die cut on top of the glitter paper and the sentiment piece on top of that. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed using Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. A few sequins were added and this card came together pretty quickly!

  1. I love red and I love glitter so this card looks pretty cool to me! I love your laser die-cut! BTW, what's a laser die-cut? I'm thinking it must be something you made on a Silhouette or Cricut? Inquiring minds want to know...

    1. Melanie here - FYI, I saw laser die cuts available on the Clearance Rack at Stampin' Up in the past few days. A friend had given me a few when they first appeared. Perhaps CTMH has them.

  2. Really love that die with the red glitter behind it!

  3. This is just beautiful! I love the die cut over the red glitter paper.
