Hot & Spicy Colors - LIM 349


Over at Less is More we are asked to use Hot and Spicy Colors on our projects. As I read the theme, I thought it's a great chance to make one more Christmas card :)! 

I did partial die cutting a few times but never cut a part of the cardbase out. After I saw  Jennifer McGuire's pretty projects using this technique, I wanted to give it a try. 

And this is my card. The red is darker IRL than in the picture. 

I started by stamping Christmas Mini Cluster by The Ton in Hampton White pigment ink on the dark red cardbase.  I colored the poinsettias with Prismacolor colored pencils and added glitter using Spica glitter pens. I then die cut the bottom part of the image using coordinating die and cut the lines with a craft knife. I white heat embossed the sentiment and added the lines in red and clear glitter pens. I glued a white panel cut with Double stitched rectangle die inside the card. To finish off I added some dots with red Pico embellisher.

I hoped the close up below shows the sparkle of the glitter pen.

The theme at SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge is Christmas. So I'll enter this over there as well. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I really appreciate your lovely comments :)! 
Have a wonderful day!

I saw that video too, TaeEun, and am anxious to try it. Yours turned out beautifully. The colored pencils really add great dimension to the poinsettias.
