National Wear Red Day® – Cards dressed in Red!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke.

So … as I wear my red today, I thought it would be fun to share a couple cards dressed in red and highlighting our hearts.  Let’s start sweet -n- simple, this easy to create card uses only 4 items with your cardstock!!  I began with Real Red cardstock for my base and pulled out the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  I choose the red & pink heart pattern.

I love the Heart Doilies and decided to use them for this card.  You get pink and red doilies in the pack, and if you flip them over … they are white! So the base is the red doily, then I cut down one down and used the white side to stamp my greeting. The greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.  I finished this card off with a pretty red bow.

For my second card, I took the red & pink pattern from the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper and flipped it over!  The flip side reveals this cute red foil with pink & white polka dots.

You can easily see that I incorporated the doilies in my second card as well. The pretty foil heart was punched out from another sheet of the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  You can use either of the punches in the punch pack on these hearts, I used the scalloped heart punch.

I added a piece of vellum cardstock to highlight the punched heart, and the greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which bundles with the Heart Punch Pack. A little strip of Whisper White cardstock cut into a banner highlights the greeting.

Our Heartfelt Bundle and coordinating “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper is not just for Valentines, it’s great for your friends, for weddings, baby showers and more. Today it’s to celebrate life … to bring awareness to the fight against heart disease.

Thank you so very much for sharing a part of your day with me today… enjoy the rest of your Friday.
