Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 14 - Red and White


The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs blog is Red and White.  I began my first card with this beautiful die called  Sophia's Heart.  I mounted it to a card stock base created with my XL Circle Stackers.  After I got the die onto the card base, I realized I did not want to cover it up so I added a few gems and called it good.  I think this is such an elegant die. 


For my diagonal easel card, I again began with Sophia's Heart, but I trimmed the inner heart circle out of the die leaving the beautiful outer border.  I added a white panel below the border using my XL Circle Stackers.  For the image, I die cut another circle then added a red Scallop Circle Stacker panel behind it.  This adorable image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Ragged Romeo.  I colored them with my Copic markers keeping the color tones pretty muted.  I added small pieces of the Heart Chain border to the upper corners. 


For the inside of the card, I added the center portion of Sophia's Heart to an Inverted Scallop Circle Stacker.  I added more  Heart Chain border and a rose created with the Miniature Rose and the Medium Rose dies.  I used portions of the Victorian Romance Flourish underneath the rose.  The last step was to add some Iced White Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents.  Finished size is 6" square.  I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Mo's Challenge blog.

Both your cards are absolutely beautiful!! Sophia's heart is too beautiful to cover up. Your second displays it so wonderfully!! I love how you separated the inner heart using it on the inside. Fabulous designs, colors, papers, all the dies!!

I love how you used parts of the Victorian Romance Flourish to accent the corner. It made me look at the die in a whole new way. Beautiful card.
