Red Hat meets Beautiful You Stamp set

Today I am sharing a card designed with the new Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Stamp set to make a Red Hat card. This card was designed by one of my Downlines, Margaret.

This is a quick and simple card made with Elegant Eggplant cardstock cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" to form the card base.  The card base is embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder to add a little dimension.

And of course since Red Hat Colors are Red and Purple there is a layer of Real Red cardstock cut to 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Next is a layer of Basic Black cut to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and a layer of Whisper white cut 3 1/8" x 4 3/8".

The image is stamped with Black Archival ink on the Whisper White cardstock.   The lady is stamped a second time on a scrap of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and cut out to piece the dress on the lady.  The hat is stamped a second time on Real Red cardstock and cut and pieced to the hat.

When designing cards there are several common measurements to use for layering.  A common layer is 1/4" between pieces of cardstock.  On this card, a narrow 1/8" layer is used to mat the focal piece of Whisper white cardstock.  Then a wider layer of 1/4" is used between the Basic black and Real Red cardstock.   I like the framed look that the difference in layers gives the folcal point of the card.
