Red & White Midweek Throwdown


These cards are for the OWH Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown color challenge to make either a red & white, or a green & white card, without it being specifically for Christmas. Since I'm going to miss the Valentine deadline I decided to make these general love cards. Each has a different embossed heart, and each has a different embossed heart-themed background, so even though they look the same, they're a little different. I used a G studio stamped sentiment, cherry cobbler seam binding and Cuttlebug embossing folders for the red hearts. Since each red piece of card stock was left over from previous projects, I'm also entering these cards into the combined Snippets Playground weeks 103 & 104.

Enjoy your day - thank so much for the visit during this busy time of the year!

These are just beautiful! I love the different embossing folders you used and how you tied the ribbon. The red, white, and black really give them such an elegant look. Great job!

These are so pretty. I love all the different embossed hearts and also all the smaller hearts in the background. Fantastic cards for Valentine's or just to tell someone you love them.

I always loves the embossing on your cards. But I have to say, I always see a folder I think I need. Good thing is I talk myself out of it until the next time I see you use it! LOL! Great cards!!!!

Gorgeous cards Carol - love the embossing, as well as the deep red against the white. Also a fab way to tie the ribbon, I'm gonna try that one!
