Spots & Stripes

The Secret Crafter challenge this week is:

Spots and Stripes

I've made my own card blank from some lovely mottled / textured red card upon which I've layered a piece of stripy card - not sure where this originated from but I think it must have been a digital download because I've printed it off.

I treated myself to some Spellbinders Nestabilities - been looking at them for a long time and decided to take the plunge. Once I'd decided which one to buy that is! Was a little tricky to use at first as I need another spacer mat or something in my Sizzix Original machine but managed to use the smaller dies with the small black Sizzlets spacer plate. So ok for now, but will need to get myself sorted if I want to use one of the larger nesties.

The sentiment has been stamped with an acrylic Studio G stamp and I had to pick one that would fit on the shape! The ribbon is from my stash and the card candy is from Craftwork Cards.
  • Backing paper: Not sure
