Nuts, or Just a Little Bit Crazy

Hello.  Welcome.  I am posting three black and white projects after happy mail gave Mr Mojo a major boost today.  I've used Mark's Finest Papers Nutcracker stamp after seeing Deepti's card.  I loved the bold black and white stripes on Deepti's card and was inspired to this...

I actually used a variation on the cut panel technique to make my stripes.  I cut a panel with the SSS stitched rectangle die and stamped Marks Finest Papers Nutcracker in black.  Then I measured 1.5cm sections and cut them away each side up to my stamped image.  Does that make sense?  Didn't think to take a picture.  Then I backed it with a black base card.  Voila, stripes.
