I love using White and Red for Christmas Cards, so I thought I would challenge myself not to make one and the one I made was more for a Wedding or an Engagement.

To make it easier to write my post my card all the products I used are Simon Says Stamp.

First up I used the Falling Hearts stencil and used it to emboss my hearts I should have done that after I used the Wonky Frames to prevent the rollers making my hearts slightly flat.

I used the Cluster of Leaves, trimming it  slightly to fit my card. My flowers are the Hydrangea Petals die with Stitched Snowflakes cut in red in the centre. I've told a lie I have used another companies product the Tim Holtz Gearhead Thinlets die, some of the gears have circles for waste and I used them for the round centres.

Back to Simon Says Stamp products I used their Love die which I cut in red as well as white. The small sentiment is from their sentiment stamps called Messages for Everday and I stamped it first and when properly dried I used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Banners.  Finally some red butterflies using the Flickering Butterflies die.

Little did I know when I was making this card that England would play and win to the Quarter Finals.

To all my friends at Simon Says Stamp and the USA
 have a wonderful
 4th July.

Hi Debby! Swooning over the sheer elegance of this card. The white and red combination looks so beautiful and the dimensions you add to your fussy cut or die cut images really adds life to them. Have a lovely day! xx Ankita

Oh I LOVE this, Debby. This is absolutely stunning!! My parents wedding was red and white, this would make a PERFECT anniversary card. I may just have to CASE this for them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Misty Elam said...

I have to say, that was very clever and creative of you to make the flowers the way you did. I would NEVER think to look at my snowflake dies nor the throw away center of any. I just had to tell you how impressed I am. ๐Ÿ˜Š
