Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 36

For the first Crafty Cardmakers challenge of 2011, we'd like you to make a card with red and a die cut. A nice easy challenge to start off the year.

And this week we're sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts.

Typically, when faced with a challenge like that, I take it literally, and so I produced this:




I had to photograph it at an odd angle because the alternative is to have a perfect image of me holding a camera reflected back! I've used my new Spellbinders Lotus Pendant die set which I bought after winning a prize in a recent Fred she Said blog hop - the prize was a $25 gift voucher! I've simply layered various die cuts from the set onto mirri-board. I must admit, I love this style of card - it's got lovely, clean lines and I think these cards are perfect to have in your stash because they work for any occasion and for men as well as women.

I hope you can join us this time!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Days Away which has an open theme this week,
Southern Girls who have an open theme this week,
Papertake Weekly who have an open theme this week,
Tuesday Throwdown whose theme is embossing. (All the die cuts were cut and embossed in my Wizard.)
The Creative Cottage who want us to use something new. (Pendant die set.)

Love the CAS look to this card. I would have difficulty with it myself and would have to seriously fight the urge to add more to it. Well done to you for putting together a very sophisticated card.

Love Mandy xxx

Hi Josephine, love your fab card. I have this die but wouldn't have thought to layer it up. Great idea, very effective.
