Lady In Red

Two posts in one day, I am on a roll! I made this card for LOTV’s special challenge as they are celebrating their 9th Birthday – see the side bar for more info. I love LOTV stamps, however I don’t get to use them as much as I like which is why this cutie has not seen the light of day since I bought her with some challenge winnings last year. I was a bit frightened of colouring her, but now I’ve done it I really can’t think why! I decided to shape the card like a fan, but then I got a bit carried away and went and covered up the edges!


Stamp – Aimi With Lantern –
LOTV coloured with Promarkers
The fans were made with a stamp I have had for absolutely years and have no idea where it came from!
Sentiment –
Ribbon, silver fan & red embossed card from stash
Flowers – WOC
Pearls, fancy button and silver flowers –
J & C Creations shop
Tools used: SB ‘Floral Ovals’ die, Memory Box ‘Faux Crochet Border’ die & SB M-Bossabilities ‘Whimsy’ embossing folder

'Birthday Card' - LOTV
’Ribbon & Bling’ –
Dream Valley
’Add A Sentiment’ – Whoopsi Daisy
’Mother’s Day/Birthday’ – Inky Chicks
’Birthday’ – Creative Card Crew
’Anything Goes’ – Divas By Design
’Lace And/Or Pearls’ – I ♥ Promarkers
’Something Old’ – Cute Card Thursday (fan stamp, red card and silver fan)
’Use Embossing’ – C.R.A.F.T
