Cricut Cardz Challenge

The challenge this week over at Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a using any theme and cartridges we wanted but to use only the colors red, white, and black. Here is what I came up with.


I decided to make Valentine's Day card. My card base is what card stock folded to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a red mat that I cut at 4 1/8" X 5 1/4". I then punched a border along the bottom of the red mat using my Martha Stewart Cherished Hearts border punch. My white mat was cut at 3 3/4" X 5 1/4" and again I used the same border punch and punched the border at the bottom of this mat. My Cricut cut is from the Love Struck mini cartridge and was cut at 3". I used black for the first layer of this image and some red metallic Recollections card stock for the top layer. I also sprayed the red top layer with some Berry Ice Smooch spray to give it even more shimmer. Behind my image I added a strip of sheer white ribbon that had some red hearts across the middle of it. I attached my heart cut with some foam tape and added a rhinestone to the top and bottom of the heart. I am really happy how this came out and love this border punch. Thanks for visiting.
