Don't Give an Inch

I love how the stamps in this set can be overlaid to build up patterns.  I decided to use them to create a frame for this apt saying.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Draw a light pencil line 1cm in from each edge and mark the centre point.
Using the solid square stamp from Sam Crowe’s Don’t be such a square set stamp into each corner in Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide, at the centre of each edge in Festive Berries Oxide, then fill in between in Mustard Seed Oxide.
Stamp over the four corners with four of the pattern stamps in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Do the same with the four red squares choosing different stamps in the set.
Using the same eight stamps, add patterns over the yellow squares in Onyx Black and heat emboss as before.
Using the Alphabet Word Chain letters, add ‘Don’t give an Inch’ into the centre of the frame in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss in clear embossing powder.
To finish, add the stencil card to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
