Regal in Red: Lorraine’s View

By: Lorraine Revalee, Artistic Guide

Finished Card Size: 5.5" x 4.25"

I am delighted to be working with different colors each month as it leaves much room for creativity.  This project deals with a page taken from a magazine, jazzed up with embellishments, etc., and then made into the focal point of your card.  I call it Scrunched Magazine.  Finished size card:  5.5" x 4.25"

  1.  Tear colorful page out of a magazine.  Crumple and wad it up in a ball making lots of creases.
  2.  Unwrap and smooth gently keeping the folds and creases.  Use an acrylic brayer to flatten.
  3.  Trim with scissors to a smaller size or shape.
  4.  With a sea sponge sparingly dab Versamark onto crumpled magazine sheet.
  5.  Add embossing powder and heat.  Repeat two times using a different color each time.
  6. You can also add glitter for sparkle while embossing powder is still warm.
  7.  Adhere a mica chip with a brad to magazine paper.
  8.  Add embellishments and adhere panels as shown on the finished card after embossing the red panel with the Cuttlebug and punching one edge of the gold panel.

  1. Very cool card. It would be great to have a colorful card like this built around the Chinese new year theme. I have some Chinese friends who I know would like it. (They own a restaurant and were happy to put our Christmas card on display.) Anyhow, just a thought.

    Nice job.


  2. Lorraine, you are so talented and creative. This card is exquisite. Who know when you and I were raising "roudy" boys someday we'd have time to "create"? Best to you, Jeannine

  3. Wondeful card. This is very stunning.
