Red Carnation Card




Hi crafters!  Sometimes you just have to bust out the red card!  Be bold, make a statement!  The Hexagonal Borders really do help do the trick too!




























The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Well this certainly IS bold but behind the curtains is vile, cold, wet and very windy thanks to Hannah so your bright red, happy sample is just what is needed this Saturday and I'm off to watch you put this bold red sample together. I really hope that you have much nicer weather wherever you are in the world xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, well this sample is certainly very vibrant, it grows on you though every time you look at it. Will watch video later

Stay safe health and happy hugs June Smith xxx xxx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

A very striking card particularly with the red - can easily be muted with a pastel colour but either way its stunning.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a lovely colourful card today. There is just enough colour for it not to be too overpowering, especially when teamed up with white.
