Week 44 of the Colour creations Blog-Hop 2023-24 - Real Red


Hello all, and welcome to week 44 of the colour creations Blog-Hop. This week we are featuring Real Red. This colour is part of the Brights Collection of colours and a really lovely bright red.

I have chosen to use one of the Online Exclusive product that went live this month (March 2024) Called Simply Zinnia. I started with a Real Red card back and add a Old Olive layer. I then added a Basic white layer that I embossed using the embossing folder that is part of the Zinnia Suite. then I made my frame that covers part of the basic white layer and added the DSP to give the framed look. I called this card a Framed Card. I then cut out the Zinnias from the dies as well as the leaves and added them to the front of the card. Finishing off the front using the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch, and some of the lovely shiny Sequins.

 As always I follow the layering over to the inside of my card, with Old Olive and Basic White. I stamped my sentiment and the zinnias in Real red and only coloured the leaves with Old Olive. I love the way the frame turned out. I haven't seen this design before (not saying it's not been done before) and was happy with how it all came together.

 If you would like to know more about these Online Exclusive product or the design of my card please feel free to contact me.
