Guest Designer – Crafting by Designs – Bingo Challenge

guest designer badge

Last month I was asked by Crafting by Designs to be a Guest Designer in February. Their weekly challenge starting February 18th is a Bingo Challenge with an “Anything Goes” subject matter. I was very honoured to join in!

bingoI opted to go with Pearls/Die Cuts/Ribbon. I made two versions of my card: White on Red (more detail) & Red on White (simpler design). The heart die I used is Vernay Heart by Memory Box. The die has extra details, so I put it through my Big Shot twice, once to cut, and once with a rubber mat to emboss. For the white heart, I cut out the heart twice and fussy cut the flowers and then popped them up with foam tape for added dimension. The Love Script die is by Memory Box, the tag/heart is from Blueprints by MFT, and the stamped sentiment is from Paper Hugs by SSS. I added pearls and ribbon from my stash to complete the look.

I entered my First card (with Love die cut) into the following challenges:

Inky Chicks - Challenge #46 – From [Canada] with love AND  UnstampaBelles Challenge - February Challenge #44 National Symbols

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag #red & white so I thought my red and white Valentine card was a perfect tribute.
