Whats black white and red allover?...

Happy Thursday,

I've been meaning to blog this card since I first made it but I keep forgetting!  I made this as s ample for the Hochanda shows that featured the Infinity striplet however I made it at a demo day in Fife and completed the mats and layers at home.


I stared using the quilted technique that I showed on Hochanda a few weeks ago.  I cut the front panel using the infinity striplet.  I cut the backing panel extending the die to give 4 panels.

Next I embossed a piece of red and black using the die but not cutting it.  I then cut the red and black into separate squares and slotted them alternately behind the die cuts.



I then stamped the sentiment and added a chrysanthemum die cut in red and white with a red centre with red sporing foliage.

Enjoy...

  1. Striking card. I think I might have a go at this. It's one of my favourite striplets.
    Hope you had a good day yesterday and will have another great one today.
    Happy crafting.

  7. Good morning John this is a stunning card. I love the bold colours. The dies are amazing. The centre section would work well as a little card on its own. Have a great day today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  20. Good Morning John I thought when you showed it on Hochanda what a brilliant male card it would make very striking in those colours to. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

  21. wow what a striking card. The red, black and white certainly make an impact and it would be a stunning card to receive whether you were male or female (not often one card would do for either sex, but I definitely think this one would).
