ABC Challenge - T is for...

This week at the ABC Challenge we've reached the letter T...which is for 'Two Tone'. We'd like to see you using just two colours on your cards...plus neutrals for skin and hair if you're colouring images.

I decided to use red and white on my card as it's for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary. I started by scoring three parallel lines across the white piece of card, then used the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder to emboss the areas above and below these lines. The sentiment stamp is from the Clare Curd Signature Range by Papermania, the brads are by Dovecraft and the ribbon from Poppicrafts. The hearts were cut using the 'Concentric Hearts' die by Cuttlebug, then mounted onto an oval mat cut using Nesties, then embossed to match the background.



Don't forget to visit the other design team member's blogs for more inspiration for this week's challenge.
