Flaming Chili Peppers! at The Robin's Nest

Hi Everyone,

As you drive along roads in Arizona, within nearly every mile, you can pull to the side of the road and buy a beautiful string of hot red chili peppers. Chili Flame Cardstocks are a perfect way to celebrate this Southwest tradition. This month, The Robin's Nest is bringing you amazing projects that showcase the Hot Flame Line. Take a break from your busy schedule and enjoy all the creativity.

Today's project uses Chili Flame Cardstock, Chili Flame Border, and Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations.

Supplies Used

The finished card is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".  The card front is Ochre Classic Glitter Cardstock, matted with the solid side of Chili Flame Border.  

I fussy cut the flame border and angled flames from each corner toward the center of the card.

A 3-1/4" square was cut from Chili Flame Cardstock - matted with Ochre Classic Glitter and the solid side of Chili Flame Border.  This was popped up in the center of the card.  
I cut several small "chili pepper" shapes and covered them with different shades of glitter.  These are arranged on a Spellbinders die cut out of Ochre Classic Glitter.  The chili peppers were embellished with Sunflower Rumple Ribbon.  The ribbon is tied in a bow, with the ends sliced to resemble straw.  

A few Winter Retreat Dew Drops finish off the card.  How ironic that "Winter Retreat" Dew Drops would make this card so hot!
