Birthday Cheers for the Black and Red

Posted on

My brother-in-law, Jamie is an alumnus of the University of Georgia. And he really lives, eats and breathes Black and Red. So I wanted to give him a card that represented UGA without being overtly bulldogish.  And here is what I came up with.

I used the Mighty Bloom- Coverplate die from Papertrey ink to create leaf burst red portion of the card. And I used the Hero Arts – Magical Background stamp for the heat embossed area on the black card. The bullseye medallion was made using four different circle punches and then layering the papers together. I topped it all off with a black enamel dot.

 

Here is a close up view of the heat embossing. I love adding heat embossed elements to my cards. It always seems to make them seem so much more professionally finished.

I am going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Die Crazy  and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – M (anything relating to M words) My take on the M challenge is that this is a Masculine card for my brother in law.

Happy Stamping,

Mo
