Papercraft Star #132: RED!

The current RED challenge at Papercraft Star is a very popular one! After playing with distress inks, mists, and water for my jingle belles card last week, I thought I'd do it again in red. I then cut a strip of the paper and embossed it, and the rest came together:

Supplies: Fired Brick & Barn Door distress inks; Candy Apple Red and Copper Tattered Angels Glimmer mists; Martha Stewart tag; Lil' Inker heart dies; Inkadinkado cat stamp; foam thickers; PSX letter stamps; Dress it Up heart button; googly eyes; Mrs Grossman's sticker sentiment


A bit of the shine on the background.

As you can imagine, this card was a custom request - the cat made to resemble one in real life, and his name stamped onto a heart tag. And it's so clear to me looking at the last bunch of cards that I made them near one another - another Martha tag popping up, that grey Basic Grey paper...it's just funny when that happens!

The Papercraft Star challenge is open for another 11 hours, so 3 am Atlantic time :)
