Hats off to Place cards

Creating cards is only just one type of paper craft. This morning a window treatment customer told me about her plans for a Red Hat luncheon. "I wish I had some placecards," she said. She had some really adorable goodies to go at each place setting but lacked the cards. I offered to make them for her. With one sheet of 12x12 paper, one stamp set and about a half hour, I designed and stamped 9 cards with red flourishes and purple embossed designs. I added clear rhinestones to the ones I made for her, but I kept my sample without rhinestones. I'm not sure which I like better. What do you think?

Hint: While Elegant Eggplant is probably a closer purple to the Red Hat color, I used a lighter shade of purple on the red paper to get it to show up purple when embossed.

Ingredients: Stamp Set - Baroque Motifs by Stampin' Up!
Red paper - source unknown
Ink: Riding Hood Red and Lovely Lilac from Stampin' Up!
Clear embossing powder also by Stampin' Up!
