Lady in Red

I absolutely love re-creating this note card. It was one of the first designs I ever made in a card class but I never tire of making it. Today's challenge on 365Cards is to make a card that has a hat on it. This lovely vintage style lady fit the bill perfectly.


To begin, I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed her in gold. I then cut the image out. The background paper of the roses and flowers is some that I have had for years. I am almost out of it so I need to find a few more sheets soon. I carefully trimmed a few flowers to layer the image on. Next, I made a card base that is a bit smaller than A2 size. She looks better on a small note card than a full size card. I trimmed the corners with two different punches, one is called the iron eagle but I don't know the other name sorry. I trimmed a piece of burgandy mulberry paper and feathered the edges with a water pen. After gluing the flowers and stamped image on top of the mulberry paper, I took a gold Krylon pen and splotched (yes that is a word) it over the front. I also trimmed the card edge with the gold pen. For the finishing touch, three buttons were added on her hat.

That's it for now. I need to get to work this morning. I hope you enjoy your Friday :)


  1. wow, your card is so beautiful and romantic. I love it!

  2. Beautiful card, and it is great that you did something other than christmas, like I did, not that christmas cards are bad, but a break now and then is nice.
