Red Dress Card

Friday is “red dress” day, and I wanted to make a Red Dress Card as a reminder of the importance of women’s heart health.  Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women!  It is often a silent killer (our symptoms are quite different from those that men experience).  Heart disease kills 1 in 3 women!  So, can I ask you to do three simple things?  First, talk to your doctor about your heart health and ways to maintain and/or improve it.  Second, remind other women of this silent killer and urge them to take steps to reduce their risk factors.  Finally, wear something red on Friday to show your support and help spread the message.  For more information on women’s heart health issues and the Red Dress (or Go Red) campaign, please visit the American Heart Association’s website at http://www.heart.org.

My card is a simple one.  The dress is cut using Spellbinder dies, “Decorative Dress Forms“.  The heart behind it is cut using Sizzix Scallop Hearts #2, embossed with a heart embossing folder by The Paper Studio, and sponged with a little “Love Letter” ink by Memento.  The patterned paper is cut 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″, and the red background layer is 4.25″ x 5.5″.  The pink heart embellishment on the dress is a Doodlebug heart pearl (cupcake).  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread, and is stamped and sponged with Memento Love Letter ink.  I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape by Scor-Pal and low dimensional adhesive to attach the elements.

Please take care . . .
