Heart Valentine Basket and Cards Color Dare Challenge #178
“Take the Color Dare Challenge” It was great fun to play with these colors together. I know you will love creating something with these beautiful colors. Take the challenge here. http://colormyheartcolordare.blogspot.com/2016/01/color-dare-178-thistle-pixie-glacier.html
This VALENTINE BASKET & CARDS was created for a color dare challenge using Glacier, Pixie, Thistle and White Daisy.
I used Cardstock and Ink colors of Glacier, Thistle, Pixie, White Daisy, and the Pink striped paper from the Kaleidoscope Paper Collection. I also used the S1601 January SOTM set, White Organza Ribbon, Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Thick Twines – Glacier and Thistle, and mini Brads. I created my cuts in Cricut Design Space using several of our CTMH Cartridges. Art Philosophy – images #M46CCE, #M3F851, #M3ED9A – Soiree Lettering to add the word Valentine, and sentiment inside one of the cards. Artfully Sent – #M10677A, Artiste – #M3Dad5, M3ABFC.
Creating the files required using the Cricut Design Space tools – slice, weld, attach, group and UN-group and contour. This was a fun challenge that took me out of my comfort zone of colors. It was a little challenging for me to combine these colors, but are very cute together. It was a great experience and pushed me to try colors I don’t usually prefer or use. I decided to make three different card designs while I was creating my cut files. I tried to keep this project simple which is another one of my struggles. My desire was to try and create something that would apply to different style preferences and taste, I hope you like them.

This is one of the boxes from SVG Cuts. I just love their files. I really embellished this one with a lot of layering, fussy cuts on the butterflies, added words and phrases and a lot of distressing. It brought out the colors in the paper collection so well.
Each year I create a special Box Set that contains at least Six Cards and Envelopes which contains the Southern Belle Logo. I enjoy creating these limited sets.
Made using CTMH White Pines paper collection and D1483 Glory to God Stamp Collection. I used every stamp of this collection on this card.
I loved this little box from the past so much I just had to bring it back and add a little twist to it. I have no idea where the Original idea of the folded box came from or just how long it’s been out there but here is just one of the ones I’ve done. This one was created and cut in Cricut Design Space. The link to the file can be gotten in the Red version previously posted called Gift Box within a Purse. I used the paper collection Sonoma, Coco Ink, and some odds and ends for embellishing from Close To My Heart. The paper collection is retired. It was my favorite collection that year so I decided to use it for this project, I’m glad I did. I love how I was able to fussy cut some of the pieces to embellish it to give it even more interest and depth.
