"Red New Black Hello"  card
Size: 7"w x 4.5"h

I'm in a calligraphic mood.  I recently saw a Sickels alphabet and although I've seen it or something very similar in the past, it hit a chord with me this time . So I used what I thought was the essence of the letterforms and created my own for the word "Hello"

Fits for this challenge:

Corrosive Challenges  #69 Black & white with one other color
All Sorts Challenge  #58 Embossing
Tuesday Throwdown #5 Dry embossing


I drew them several times before I got the proportions I needed for my card. I outlined them with a Micron pen, then colored them in with a red Pitt Artist Pen. Using a stamp positioner I rubber stamped the Gothic Alphabet letters (Quietfire Design), around my word. As a final touch I added small red rhinestones where dots would naturally appear on these letters.

The card is an off center fold of white cardstock. The front is covered with another white cardstock layer run through the Cuttlebug with one of my latest Cuttlebug folders "Typeset" #2000204, brayered on the high points with Perfect Medium and embossed with Kaleidacolor.

I put a piece of black cardstock on the inside to add some contrast.
