Black & White & Red All Over!!!

I just love the look of the black, white and red cards. I also like the look of the white craft ink on black card stock. This was a fun card to make and I'm REALLY liking the new Stampin' Up! wheel "See You Around.

The measurements for this card are as follows:

Real Red card stock:
cut one piece 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and cut another 2 1/8" x 2 1/4" and punch out one 1 1/4" circle.

Basic Black card stock:
cut one 5 1/4" x 2", cut one 5" x 1 3/4", one 2 1/2" x 2 3/8" and one 1 3/8" circle.

Whisper White card stock:
cut one 5 1/8" x 1 3/4", one 2" x 2 1/8" and one 1" circle (be sure to stamp the image first, turn the stamp upside down, line up the stamp inside the circle and then punch it out.

Stamp the white craft ink first and set it aside to dry. Craft ink takes a little longer to dry than regular dye based ink. Half way through making this card sponge the edges in white and set it aside so by the time you are ready to assemble your card the white will be dry. Tie the bow on before you assemble the card. I used Real Red ink on the background of the red piece. I felt it would stand out better than using Versa Mark.

It's a fun card to make and a layout that works well with smaller stamps.

Thank you for stopping by!

GREAT idea to use the wheel to do an accent! I've never done that before. My wheels are badly neglected!! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
