Live a Little by Putting on Red Lipstick

Create with TLC has a new wonderful set - Red Lipstick and Live, Vintage Image and Sentiment is one of Create with TLC's new sets which she is calling her "Trashy Romance" but it is sew me!!!! Also, with this card, I saw someone had submitted a challenge for Scrapbook Blessings and fell in love with the "braided" look and I just had to incorporate the two together. 

Isn't that card border impressive and let me tell you oh oh easy!!!! I do need to let you know with some papers, you may see the folding crease as I had and just using my Spectrum Noir DR5 to cover the marking which concealed it purrfectly!!!

Here's the link to the Website which also shows you the video - hope you have a chance to stop and visit to learn this fabulous technique at Welcome to Brandy's Cards along with a free download of the template!!!!  

  • card was cut 5.5 x 8.5 inches using K&Co Speciality Paper for Valentine's Day which was double-sided and gave the two-toned braid
  • background paper is Recollections Card Stock both in red and black 
  • black background paper was embossed using Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder
  • digi was colored using Spectrum Noir and Prisma Markers with Prisma Colored Pencils and gel pens, fussy cut around the edges and puff-dotted on my card - now I need to say I'm not the proudest of her eyes as I was having issues doing them and I didn't want her to look scary while this handsome dude wanted to suck her face - hope I succeeded!!!
  • sentiment, "Put on some Red Lipstick and live a little" was also from this set which is chalked around the edges, "Lipstick" was colored with gel pen and puff-dotted onto my card 
  • ribbon is Darice Satin Edge Organza
