Happy New Year # 32-Red and Purple

I recently replaced my old Big Shot with a Spellbinders Platinum 6. I’m happy with the change and this die was included with the purchase. I decided to use it and see what I could come up with using the colours from the challenge. The red paper, almost foil paper, is a chocolate box wrap that has a faint snowflake pattern on it. It was too nice to throw away so I cut it into 4 by 5″ pieces and used some of it to cut the floral piece. I cut it several times and glued them together as the paper is thin and I wanted it to be a bit more robust. The word Hi is cut from a scrap piece of the same card stock and then glued to the floral layer. I added the red layer to a white strip so it would stand out from the purple more. I’m happy with how it turned out and will likely use the card as a get well or thinking of you for someone needing a lift in spirits.

    1. Thanks so much. Hope you like your new machine. I find mine to be very good and my big shot is not working that well these days.


  2. Love that this was made using a chocolate box wrapper! Way to reuse! Love the bold design and yet the simplicity of it too! Thanks for being with us at Color Hues!
