Red and White Swap

My Yahoo stamping group has two challenges every month. I have not been a participant in many of them. However, I'm going to try to start being better about them. One of the monthly swaps is a color challenge. This month's colors are red and white, and here is the card I made for it.

I used embossing paste and a Sizzix brass stencil to make the heart. I also sprinkled glitter over it for some sparkle (which does not show up in the picture.) I matted with white and mounted on foam squares. I stamped the sentment (from Inkadinkado) with Versamark and embossed with detail white embossing powder. Again, I matted with white and mounted on foam squares. I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder.

Wyatt made a great recovery yesterday, and could possibly go home later today! I sure hope he does!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A perfect match in patterns from the heart to the background.

I am so happy for you that Wyatt's health so abruptly improved!

And I'm the lucky recipient of this very pretty Valentine. We make the cards so the recipient can hopefully use them. I will definitely be using it this year! Thank you!

Fantastic news about Wyatt. Hooray! :)

Love your card Lynette. It's been a very long time since I've seen the embossed paste technique. Love the red and white!Enjoy the rest of the day.

Lynette, I am so inspired to read about all the techniques you use on just one card. I am so happy about the good news about Wyatt!

I always love a crisp red and white, and even better with the embossing and sparkle! Pretty heart! Good to hear Wyatt is so much better!
