White, black and red
This is my card for this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 82. The theme is Black, White & One Other Colour.
I begun by punching the flower background panel. I cut a 5" square of white card. I punched the design using my Martha Stewart Punch All Over The Page Crochet Flower punch. I know it's not a traditional Christmas design but I felt the combination of red onto white gave quite a 'Scandinavian' feel. I attached the punch panel onto a square of red paper.
I stamped the centre greeting in black ink. The sentiment stamp is Red Gingham - Christmas Text circle sentiments available exclusively from Little Claire. I attached this onto a red and black circle cut with Nestabilities Lacey Circles dies. I added the greeting with foam pads to the centre of the card. To finish I added gems and faux stitching.
