Another Red, White & Black


It always amazes me how little paper it takes to make a card.  I recently participated in a couple of swaps where I got some 6" x 6" papers and some 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" papers.  The smaller ones are great for focals or matting focals.  The larger pieces work great for backgrounds for my cards, with enough left over to use on the inside of the card.  I've made several cards using them, and hardly made a dent.  Here's another one.

This focal was stamped and embossed with fine black powder (HOTP stamps). Though you can't see it in the picture, the white card mat is embossed.  The white stripe is grosgrain ribbon; the three little vinyl pieces in the upper right corner came from a Scrapbooking Dazzles set.
