Black and White and Red All Over!

Another paper swap card, this one starts with a sentiment stamped on a black die cut (Spellbinder's die).  I first stamped it with an opaque white, then with red, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  This is matted on red and then on black.  Both were cut with a Spellbinder's die (Resplendent Rectangles).  The red was short for the full die, but I chose to use it anyway.  It puts a pierced edge around the die cut, so on the upper and lower edges (that were too short to be cut by the die) I did my own piercing.  As you can see, before gluing the background paper to the card, I slipped a couple of ribbons through holes on the edge of the black die cut mat and wrapped them around to the back.  Layered flowers complete the card (with Jewel Dazzles centers).
