New Challenge at Die Cut Divas

Hi Lovelies,

Today over at Die Cut Divas blog we have a new challenge up.  This month we are challenging you all to make an Untraditional Valentines.  Hannah is challenging us to make a Valentines card with a twist, this is what she has to say
"Because this is the "official" month of love, I am going to challenge you with making Valentines.

But don't think it will be so easy for you! there is a twist as well... I want to see untraditional valentines, and by this I mean not your normal pink red and white color combinations, all of which you can use, but not together on the same card/project.

and as a second option you can use embossing powder on your valentines, to which the above rules do not apply, as long as you use embossing powder.

All cards/projects must be made using at least one die cut or  embossing folder, using any die cut machine you may own."

So with this in mind I have made the following card

I decided to make a "Guys Valentines" so no pinks here.  I decided to use my embossing folders as well as embossing powders on this card.  I tore the cream c/s & then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Scripts embossing folder.  I used embossing powders in black, red & gold on the sentiment, tree & all the hearts.  I did colour the chipboard hearts with Festive Berries before adding the red embossing powder just to make them richer & darker.

I hope that you pop over to our "New Look" Die Cut Divas blog & not only play along but leave the other DT Ladies some love as well.  

Have a great day & happy crafting everyone

This is a great card Paula. Soft colours but still masculine.
