Seeing Red!

It's time for a new challenge for the Cardz TV Go-to Challenge Girls. The challenge is to make a project using red as your main color focus. This is what I came up with.

I started with a piece of red card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I then added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" then my red and white gingham patterned paper cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8". I cut a white piece of cardstock at 3 1/4" X 3 1/4". I used my eBosser and a Sizzix die to cut my flower out of black and a red and white polka dot paper. I offset the black with the polka dot paper to give it a shadow look. I added a black button with a glue dot to the center of my flower. I then cut another black mat at 3 7/8" X 1 1/2". I cut my polka dot mat at 3 3/4" X 1 3/8". Finally I cut a white mat to stamp my sentiment on.

Now it is your turn. Show us your projects that feature the color red and share them over at Cardz TV.
