Red Red Red and then some Red

Here's another very cool card from Dawn..... using Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Riding  Hood Red... who knew they'd all go together so well...

Quite a bit of white space was left on this card so the heart could become the highlight! It started with Real Red Card Stock and the Heart Framelits. Cut one Real Red heart. Flowers were punched from scraps of Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler Card Stock using the Boho Blossom punch. Some of the Real Red heart was purposefully left showing through to get all three reds on the main image.

Tombow all-purpose glue was used to attach some of the flowers and then a few others were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some Dazzling Details in the original and Cherry Cobbler colors and some Basic Pearls and Rhinestones randomly to the center of each flower for some glam. Next  make the score lines every 1/8". Another cut was made on the card front with the next larger Heart Framelit and the heart full of flowers was placed on the inside of the card to show through the top. A third, and the smallest, Heart Framelit was used to cut out the Real Red Glimmer Paper heart which was attached at the end of the scoring. The sentiment is from P.S. I Love You and is stamped in Riding Hood Red ink.

This card is 5 1/4" square and will fit in a Medium Square Envelope.

You've heard of putting a round peg into a square box?
Guess it would be sorta like that...
putting a red heart into a square envelope..
