Color Dare #171 ~ Cranberry & Pear + White & Gold

This week the Design Team at Color My Heart has a festive color combination! At least I thought it was a festive combination! 

This is a standard size card (4.25" x 5.5"). I embossed two layers with the Damask embossing folder  using the Square Diffuser on the top layer then layered them on Gold Glitter paper. Tip: Use Liquid Glass to adhere cardstock...or glitter paper. I stamped the cute little tree in Pear ink and added a gold glitter star from the Gold Fundamental Assortment. The heart is actually red so I darkened it to more of a Cranberry tone with our Cherry Pink ShinHan marker.

OH.... I almost forgot! I didn't use full layers of the gold glitter paper! I cut the paper to the sized I needed then cut out the center leaving 1/2" for the outer a frame! Saves on glitter paper, cardstock, etc!

All products are Close To My Heart: (click for image)

  1. Wow, great card. Very striking. Great use of the square diffuser. Looks like I will need to get one of those. =) And I love the red enamel heart on the tree.

  2. I love how you used the diffuser. The embossed paper looks great over gold glitter paper. Great job, Michelle--thanks for inspiring us this week!

  3. Great card! Love the glitter paper and how you made the tree stand out more by using the diffuser.

  4. Love the square diffuser, it really helps to accent the tree.
