Daring Card Makers - Black and White with a Pop of Colour

Time for a new challenge and theme over at Daring Card Makers and this week it is:

Black and White With a Pop of Colour

I've made a star card using my own template and it fits neatly on a sheet of A4 - a white gel pen was used to create a faux running stitch around the edges and I used X Cut star die cuts and the arrows.

The white, silver and red card are all offcuts - I hate to throw anything away!  The sentiment in the centre has been cut using a Cuttlebug die.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Brown Sugar:  Birthday
Crafty Catz:  Male Birthday
Seize The Birthday:  Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter:  Shape It Up
Watercooler Wednesday:  Masculine  WINNER


  1. Wonderful design, love the black and white and the arrows look great pointing to the sentiment :)

  4. You've really taken that black, white and a "pop" of colour and ran with it haven't you, Ruth! Wow! The star card is gorgeous, made even more striking with the white gel "stitching".
