52CCT - Colours ....

.... Morning!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and our host Fabiola has picked a fun colours.  Fabiola wants us to use RED, WHITE and ANOTHER COLOUR BUT NOT GREEN, neutrals are acceptable.  This card is actually the second card I made, you can see the first one tomorrow!!

Stamps: Uniko - Pure Floral - Poinsettia
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Pink Pirouette
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Vellum; SU DP - Real Red; White Embossing Powder; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Gold


I've made quite a clean, simple card.  My colours are Red, White and Pink.  I stamped the poinsettia three times in Versamark on vellum and heat embossed them with white powder.  I used Copic markers to colour the reverse of the images and then cut them out.  I ran the largest flower through my Xyron to make it self-adhesive and applied it to the card.  I used dimensional gel to attach the red and gold layers - there's a little dimension, but it's still flat enough to go through the post.  I finished the front with a simple Christmas greeting.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of red design paper.  On the white panel I stamped the flower in pale pink and added a sentiment over the top.  As I've got embossing on this card, I'm submitting it to AAA Cards - AAA#47 - where the team want to see embossing - done!
