Colour Creations Real Red

 Hellow Fellow Stampers!

Tonight we showcase Real Red!

I loved making this gift box of cards using the Love of Leaves stamp set and Stitched Leaves dies!

Gift Box template and instructions available here.

Materials used:

Cardstock - Real Red, Crushed Curry, Shaded Spruce, Basic White

Inkpads - Real Red, Shaded Spruce

Embossing Folders - Tin Tile, Subtle, Scripty

Using the technique of ink embossing I made the backgrounds:

I made a "grassy knoll" of Shaded Spruce, embossing with Subtle 3D EF and cut with scissors, or a curvy die, like Quite Curvy. I made the "trees" with one of the leaves in Love of Leaves Stamp set and cut  out with the corresponding Stitched Leaves die. I made the sentiments with the same stamp set, and voila - the cards above!
Hope you enjoyed this weeks showcase! The rest of the team have created wonders, hosted by Cathy Proctor on her blog.
