Red & Black “Sexy” Hearts A Flutter


Red black hearts - two cool

Trying a different color scheme for my two cool Valentine cards today.  The Real Red and Basic Black combination is…dare I say…a bit "sexier" than most cards I've created with the More Amore Designer Series Paper.  Can cards be sexy?

Lots of layering and textures make this card so appealing!  I started with a Real Red card base.  My Very Vanilla layer has some pretty "newsprint" from the the First Edition Designer Series Paper at the top, measuring 5" x 2". 

Along the bottom, I added a beautifully textured Real Red border, created with the Large Scallop Edgelits and Delicate Details Texture Impressions Folder.

The center panel is a strip of the new Basic Gray/Basic Black Two-Tone Ribbon, giving more texture and a lovely sheen.

The collage of hearts also brings lots of texture!  It starts with a laser-cut scalloped Real Red heart cut apart from a sheet in the More Amore Designer Series Paper (shown above). 

The Very Vanilla scalloped heart was die-cut with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits then embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder. 

The Hearts A Flutter black heart was stamped first in VersaMark Ink, heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then die-cut with the same Framelits.

The second version uses the same elements with the newsprint and border cut to 4" wide instead.
