Hearts in Two Colors

Do you have a tendency to make monochromatic Valentines?  The other day, I realized that everything I was making was either red and white, pink and white, or black and white.

So on this one, I added a panel of Regal Rose and a black check bow.

I love this long narrow size for a card.  It's a bit different but still mailable at the regular rate.  The finished card  measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/4".  Stampin' Up!'s open end envelope is a perfect fit.

And then today I saw the Stampin' Up! Only challenge and, hot dog! they were thinking along the same lines.
 YOUR challenge this time around at SUO Challenges – make a Valentine Card with two main colors (and you can add a neutral or two) and share it with us at the SUO Challenge Design Team!

Imagine that!

And adding that Regal Rose panel made such a big difference in the look of the card.  I'm so glad I added it.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  I {Love} Love Jumbo Wheel (cut apart)
Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Real Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, Adorning Accents EF, Gingham Ribbon (retired), Basic Pearls

Tomorrow I'll probably be back to monochromatic.  But that's ok.  I love monochromatic.

I'm so glad you popped in.

That's a beauty, Bonnie!! I like making long cards, too, just as long as I have the right size envelope ;).

I really, really love this card. I love that the embossed dots don't cover the card. And I love the LOVE font.

It's very sweet and the regal rose does add a little extra. x
