SFTW - Red & Brown

This week Stampin' for the Weekend have set the colour combination of Strawberries and Chocolate as the theme. A really yummy combination!

Trapzee work is a favourite of mine, it can be time consuming and fiddly but the end result is usually very pleasing. My only criticism here is the way I messed up the frame at the final stage, ds tape would have destroyed all my work so please forgive a wonky ending.

Red and Brown cardstock, red thread, no idea who's the stave is, the golden vellum insert has been stamped with another of the foam backed stamps in lighting black - may have mentioned a weakness for that ink pad previously. Almost any message can be added when the cards use becomes known.


  1. Wow Zoe, you certainly put a lot of work into this card, you must have a lot of patience, love the music theme going on here, and the vellum inserted you stamped.....it's all fabulous. Great job.
    Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge again this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great day.
