Lady in Red

Here is a stylish feminine Christmas card, using a art deco stamp that came free with a craft magazine (possibly DoCrafts) that I have never had an opportunity to try until now. I stamped the lady onto the right-hand side of the white card blank and coloured her with Promarkers. Down the left side I used an old wooden stamp of a heart from my stash and stamped the image three time. The top and bottom were heat-embossed with red embossing powder and the central heart highlighted with gold glitter. On a piece of acetate glass paints were used to create a festive mosaic of holly and Christmas trees. Once this dried it was attached to the bottom of the card with red glitter brads, and a 'With love at Christmas' sentiment sticker (from Me to You) added on the paint.
