This post/project is brought to you by the colour RED and the letter C... lots of craft options beginning with the letter C (the further down the alphabet, the less options there seem to be - could you all please start thinking about options for x, y, & z! lol)(and yes, I have zentangle and zippers...)
Here are the colours I chose to work with red for this project... a kraft Cardboard base to create Cards.. simple.. I love seeing red with paler, tealy/turquoisey blues...
Cards with red as the focal colour, both basically created in the same way but different finishing touches and decoration... here's some brief instructions..
The greeting card is made from corrugated cardboard that I've peeled the top layer off in places, and then dragged with Chalk Fresco Finish.
I recently bought a couple of phrase/word block dies from 'Lil'inker designs' in America (www.lilinkerdesigns.com), and what with it being Valentines Day in a few days used the 'love you so much' die for these cards.
I die cut the word block from a panel of black card and trimmed it leaving just a narrow frame.
I cut a panel of red card same height as the cardboard card blank, die cut the word block, and then cut the words out of the panel.
This card has all its layers flat mounted onto the corrugated cardboard, and the die cut hearts are mounted on 3d foam. I doodled around the hearts to tie them in with the stamping on the red panel (image is from JOFY24)
To create the flowers stamp the same image onto several patterned paper, cut out and match up.. I really like using this 'paper piecing' technique with my flowers.. the zigzag doodles around the outside of the flowers make it easy to match up the layers.
So that's project one of the ACP:2 project done and dusted.... just another 20ish to go... :o)
