Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hey y'all!!  Cat here this week hosting the MIUM for you!  And I KNOW you are wondering..."just a touch of WHAT?!"  LOL!  For the challenge this week, you are to use Just a Touch of RED!!  Keywords being 'just a touch'!  The whole card is not to be red...either stamp the greeting in red, have red as a layering color or as I have done, make a red bow!

For my card I used Claire's new set Nordic Winter

I did alot of heat embossing on this card, and the white area actually has some white heat is a close up of that part:

Super easy card really.  I love the heat resist acetate that Gina had in the store (out of stock ATM! So sorry!)  It will still warp a bit if you hold the heat gun too long, but takes ALOT for it to do that...i tested, lol! 

Ok, it's your turn now!  Here is all the small print! 

Be sure and have your creation uploaded to our gallery with the tag 'STV16MON43' no later than October 30th, 8PM CST for your chance to win an awesome $20 Gift Certificate from Gina K Designs!

So much fun making it too! HERE is my entry. If you noticed several of this post it was because the site was giving me problems. Sorry about that.
