I have always loved using this color combo for Christmas cards, but since the weather here in my "neck of the woods" has turned a bit warmer finally, I decided to work on my dwindling birthday card stash using a fun die set from Spellbinder's that my sweet friend Birgit shared with me called Serve-A-Slice. Take a look...
Now doesn't a slice of warm cherry pie make you think of warm Summer days?!! Birgit sent all the pieces for the pie slice and plate in white cardstock, and I ink blended with kraft and red inks to create this yummy piece of pie. My background was done with PFS's Diamond Plaid Stencil, and Ocean Mist ink from Gina K.
My sentiment comes from The Greetery's Sweet Tooth stamp & die set, and my frame is from PFS's Stitched Scallop Rectangle Dies. I finished off this sweet card with a bit of glitter and a few Disco Ball sequins (Gina K).
I have a twofer for you today, because I LOVE this color combination and I really am trying to ramp up my sadly depleted birthday stash. I have made similar cards to this one and posted on my Instagram account (#marciahill9304) using different colors, but it turned out pretty cool with the red & aqua color combo too!
This card uses MFT's Happy Cake Day and Recipe For Happiness stamps and dies, and the background is from The Stamp Market - Pierced Plaid (Thanks Michele!!).
All my cake layers and "HAPPY" letters and sprinkles were ink blended with Fired Brick and Peacock Feather Distress inks, and I finished off the "HAPPY with some Glossy Accents, and a bit of WOS on the sprinkles.
So there you have two cards using the RED and AQUA color combo, and we can't wait to see what YOU come up with using these two colors! Check out all the inspiration from the talented DT and then play along right HERE.
