National Hat Day

The Outlawz has a new challenge on Fridays called "Festive Fridays."  Each week they post several upcoming  holidays, fun ones and normal ones.  One of the holidays for this week is "Natioinal Hat Day."   I decided to join in just for fun.  I needed a card for a fellow member of the Red Hats for her upcoming birthday.  Before Deedee closed her shop, I got several image sets, including the one for Red Hats.  This was my first chance to make a card using that set.

I cut the card base using Recollections red cardstock.  Then I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder.  My Cameo came in handy for printing and cutting the image and the die cut behind the image.  Once the image was cut and put in place on the card with foam tape, I added Glossy Accents to the ribbons and feathers on the image.  I used Really Reasonable Ribbon and my Bow Maker to make the bow.  Santa brought me a full set of Nuvo Crystal Drops so I added them in the corners of the card base.
