Flaming Chili Peppers!

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 CardstockChili 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!
