Red and Green Vintage Lady

Here's another of my older cards from last year that I didn't get around to uploading.

I am loving this colour combo and will have to get these papers out again!

The Vintage Lady image, from the Vintage Postage Ladies stamp set from Crafty Individuals, was stamped onto cream card using Versafine Crimson Red archival pigment ink and cut out using the Square Stamp die from Cuttlebug. This was then matted onto a square of beige Core'dinations card and a scalloped red square, both cut using Nestabilities.

A strip of the multi ribbon strips paper from K&Co Classic K McKenna paper pad was matted onto the beige and red card, and then onto a panel of the green large floral paper also from the McKenna paper pad.

The stamped image was attached over the ribbon strip paper and three olive green card candy from Craftwork Cards were attached along the ribbon paper panel. The card candy were covered with Glitz It Pear Green glitter glue to make them nice and sparkly.

The sentiment panel was created by stamping the sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set using the Crimson Red ink onto the cream card which was then matted onto the beige and red card.

Here are the blog challenges I am entering this card into:
