What' Black and White and Red all over? The New Challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

 Welcome to the last challenge of 2020 at Shopping Our Stash and it's a really great one. Black & white and red all over. Enterpret as you see it, so many many many options now I took it literally. It wasn't an easy one for me I had a plan and when I couldn't locate a die I wanted to use I was at a standsill but while looking in all the obvious places I found a Quilt Die, I've had for a couple or three years and used once as it is a PITA to do but so worth it.  So won't keep you in suspense any longer......

It is a Gina Marie Quilt Die and so gorgeous.  First you have to cut three in coordinating patterns, I have done it with double sided patterned paper and it was lovely due to the challenge being the three colours I only used on patterned paper. First I backed the black die cut with double sided tape and put it on the red square. then becaues the areals were sticky I paper pieces the rest making sure the plaids matched. Then to use a bit more white I layered on a square of white and because I love to pay double for postage I added it to a a black layer that I sewed on to the red layer then attached it to a white 5 1/2 inch square base.  In the center there is an Eyelet Outlet enamel red glitter dot.

These are my leftovers. I must give you a tip that I saw on one of Jennifer Maguire's blog and to use Press and Seal to keep all the bits together and now I can make two more cards, the pieces come off the press and seal very easily. 

This is the inside which I left blank it's always good to have some cards you can use for any occasion.

Thanks for visitng today and head over to the Main Blog and check out what the rest of the design team have made.
