Cheery Lynn Designs Black, Red and White

This week, January 8 through January 14 at Cheery Lynn Designs all of the Designers are challenged to use the colors red, white and black to create a project using the dies of our choice.  I hope you join us every day to see all the Design Team creations using these colors along with the dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For my red, white and black card I pulled out the Embossed Hearts Scalloped Border, and the Scalloped Square from one of the Little Stackers Nesting Dies sets (I used the two smallest dies in the set).  To make this card you also need your Cuttlebug and the Metal Adaptor Plate.

  1. Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white cardbase.
  2. Put the Metal Adaptor Plate between your A and C plate and cut one scallop using red cardstock and your regular cutting stack. (Tip: using the Metal Adaptor Plate adds enough depth to the stack to cut the small hearts out of the scallop instead of embossing the hearts onto the paper). Reserve some of the small hearts to add to your card front later.
  3. Trim the scallop to 1 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inches.
  4. Remove the Adaptor Plate from your stack.
  5. Cut four more scallops from black cardstock. Trim all of them to 1 1/4 inch x 5 1/2.
  6. Layer the scallops as shown, adhere each one to the one placed above it.
  7. Tie ribbon around top of scallops and adhere to cardbase.
  8. Glue reserved small red hearts randomly onto cardfront.
  9. Using the smallest scalloped square die cut from red cardstock and stamp sentiment.
  10. Die cut next size larger sqaure and adhere to back of red cardstock slightly off center to create a shadow.
  11. Adhere sentiment to card.
  12. Adhere pearls.

Oh, this is genius, Beth! I LOVE all those scallops, and how clever you are to mix up the centers to add a few pops of red. Fabulous!

I just love love all of those little hearts. I can't wait to use your stuff when I get there. Sure hope none of it jumps into my suitcase when I pack to go back home. (nudge nudge wink wink)
