Monochromatic Card - RED

Hey everybody....

Today is a beautiful day here in NYC and I am sooo glad that the rain has been held off!

Today's Monochromatic color is RED! In light of the beautiful day here, I made you 2 cards. I used the same paper on both but just a different design!

Hope you enjoy them! thanks for stopping by!

HOW-TO Instructions

Step 1: The Base card measures - 3 x 6

Step 2: The 2nd layer 2.5 x 5.5 - I stamped this layer using HeroArts Fancy Designer Flourish using SU Real Red Ink.

Step 3: Next I trimmed the striped pattern paper to measure 1/2 x 2.5. Attach using adhesive. Tie a bow using red ribbon and attach using a small glue dot.

Step 4: Adhere the entire 2nd layer to the base card. Next, add Gemstones to the flourishes

Step 5: Stamp word image using Real Red on white cardstock. Punch out. Add black mat to the word image. Attach to the 2nd layer using foam dots.

Step 6: Punch out butterfly and add gemstone

HOW-TO Instructions (Horizontal Card)
Step 1: Base card measures 3 x 6
Step 2: 2nd Layer (Black) measure 2.75 x 5.75

Step 3: 3rd Layer (White w/Red Circles) measures 1.25 x 5.5 - Stamped the white cardstock using Real Red ink. Attach it to the black cardstock.

Step 4: 3rd Layer (Striped Red& White) measures 1.25 x 5.5 - Adhere this directly under the white cardstock w/circles.

Step 5: Wrap a piece of red ribbon around the ENTIRE 2nd LAYER of the black cardstock. Tie a bow. Adhere the entire 2nd layer to the base card.

Step 6: Add Gemstones to the Stamped Circle.

Step 7: Punch out Scallop Circle. Punch out circle with the stamp word image. Attach the Scallop Circle to the Base Card (to the left side of card). Add foam dot to the word sentiment and adhere to the center of the scallop circle.
