Red, White, & Black

Happy Tuesday everybody! I have to mention the day in the beginning of this post so that when I get through, I can remember what day I want this to show up. I managed to get a lot of cards done this weekend, so I'm trying to get some blog posts scheduled throughout the week in case I get a little too busy. Today's cards were done at completely different times and for completely different reasons, but they both have red, white, and black. The first card is made using the cross from the Cricut Wedding cartridge and some cardstock that's black with a red core. I stress the fact that it's NOT red with a black core. Last year I found some cardstock I just had to have, but I didn't use the first piece until this past Saturday. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and embossed the red wanting to sand through to the black, but all the sanding did no good, so I inked it. I then embossed on the black side and it sanded through to the red just fine. I can't wait to try another color (although knowing me it will be another year).

Next up is a motorcycle birthday card. I got the motorcycle image in a swap on Splitcoast Stampers, so I have no information about it. I used a large Happy Birthday stamp to cover the red background. The black paper has the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug embossing folder on it. I don't have that folder, but was in an embossed paper swap.

Some days I like my projects better than others, but I've learned if I just keep going, I'll get my creativity back. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Very nice. I've never tried the paper with a different color core. I'm gonna have to get me some.
