What's Red, White and Black all over...
I thought I would show another of my Red, Black and white cards today as this seems to be developing into a theme at the moment! I blame it on the Exquisite Poppy dies in Sue Wilson's new Die range for Creative Expressions.
I started this card, as I seem to do with all that I am making at the moment, with the stitched lattice which I cut in bright white foundation card. I then made a series of frames in Ruby and Black using the new Double Pierced Circles dies. I foam mounted this over the lattice and added a larger
Next I cut the Happily Ever after frame in white using the outline and the detail twice. I then cut mats for this using just the outline die in the ruby. I added these to the frames and offset them to give the look you can see in the picture. I added 5mm stick on pearls in white ( the last of my stock I think as I have been using them all over the lattice) I then added the sentiment cut in black and circled this with the pearl strings. I foam mounted this in the centre .
I added this to the bottom left to add focus to the sentiment and balm
need it with some of the pearl corners from CE on the embossed layer.
As i have said a very dramatic card but with the big increase in this colour scheme in the wedding market one I hope I can get away with ( yes I am thinking of you again and the Goth wedding you have to Craft for Maggie and Rose, you know who you are!)
I will start the sneak peaks tomorrow for my Show on Hochanda 8pm Wednesday when I get the chance to show some of my favourites from the January release of dies by Sue Wilson!
