Red, Black and Gold

Brrrrr. The weather network was right for once. It turned cold and is getting colder by the hour. Neither one of us left the house today. I was having yet another weird speech day from the brain disorders – not much pain, but weird speech. My sister-in-law called me to ask if I had the cell phone number of someone she wanted to call, and I did, but when I gave her the number she broke out into laughter and said, “What in the world was that?” She only got the first number and I think she guessed at that one. I turned the phone over to Joe to read the number. Too funny!

I was so busy in the upper studio making some Christmas gifts – quilted casserole covers – that I almost forgot to post today’s card. I could not find the theme for this week’s challenge at Stamping Bella, and it looks like a lot of people didn’t either as there was only a few entries, so no Bellariffic Card today. So instead I decided to use another favourite memory die, the poppy. Here’s the card I came up with.

I die cut the poppy from a black piece of cardstock. I took a piece of red cardstock and  rounded three corners and punched them with a Fiskar’s corner punch. Oh, oh trouble. The lower left corner didn’t punch properly and I hated to waste the cardstock. So time to get creative! I ended up really rounding the third one and added a die cut swirl (Cuttlebug)….and it turns out I really liked it being asymmetrical like that. Then I glued it to a black card base and ran a gold Bic pen around the edges. Then I placed the black die cut poppy off-centred to the right and outlined it with the gold pen. Then I stamped three silhouette black butterflies and the sentiment. A quick and simple card to make.

Have a great weekend everyone.
