I made this card for a sample for MTTC black, white and one other colour challenge over on their blog. This card is an A5 base card and was very simple to make. I recently bought the craft geek which allows you to punch accurately around the page. I will admit it took me a few attempts but I got there in the end. My chosen extra colour for this sample is jade. As you can see I stamped a border onto a piece of smooth card and before layering it onto my base card I used a spectrum noir pen which would contrast with the jade card used to ink around the edges, I also added my ribbon at this point. After doing my first layer I used one of my Spellbinder dies (labels twenty) to cut my second layer, I used a fine line pen to add a stitching effect. I then used a floral stamp for my image and coloured it with the same pen and other tones of the same colour used earlier. I cut out my image leaving a small border and then using foam pads placed it onto my die shape, I also used foam pads to layer it all onto my base card. To finish I added a few tiny gems for sparkle.
This card is also entered into Tuesday Alchemy challenge.
