Red Hat Card for a Red Hatter

Red Hat Card for a Red Hatter

I made this Red Hat Lady card for a certain Red Hatter I know.  I drew the hat shape on a piece of scrap paper, cut it out and made a template to trace onto read paper.  Then I traced it and cut out the hat shape.  I used a few red markers for the shading of the interior of the hat.  Then I added a purple “ribbon” I made with paper, ink and a sponge dauber.  The flower was made using my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge from CTMH and after cutting it, I inked the edges of the petals and assembled the flower with my quilling tool and some glue.

I used some retired CTMH paper for the background and the red strip behind the “She’s All That” embellishment. Here is a close-up of the purple flower:

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
