Merry Monday #284 - Colors Red & White

Merry Monday everyone! Marcia has a red and white color scheme for Challenge #284 this week.


Such a pretty color combo and I love her inspiration photo with all the red ornaments! I decided to go with white snowflakes though, using a fun frame die set for the first time.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Paper Studio red
Dies - Spellbinders Snowflake Snippets
Sentiment Stamp - Hero Arts CL454 Sending Holiday Cheer (retired)
Snowflake Embossing Folder by Darice
Other - Foam Tape, Darice sequins, 
DCWV clear gemstones, Hero Arts Red Royal ink

The sentiment looks washed out in the photo but it's really as deep a red as the backing to the snowflakes. The lower right snowflake panel is about the truest for the real life red - a rich cherry. The die cuts are a bit of a pain to glue - probably should've used Stick-it! And, of course, I got some glue on the red where I didn't want it - covered that boo-boo up with a sequin :) I arranged the pieces on a white panel embossed with snowflakes & adhered it to a top fold white A2 card. The die set contains 2 other squares - 1" & 2" with different snowflake designs. I'll have to try them next time!

Please click HERE to see all the wonderful inspiration from the Merry Monday Design Team & the challenge details, including the link-up for your creation. Can't wait to see your red and white card!

Thanks for stopping and have a crafty week!!
