"Red Bra Chic" 50th Birthday

     Welcome to the RBC ! Red Bra Chics . This ain't no Red Hat Ladies Club! This is for the 50 year old gal with spunk. Started by yours truly prior to turning 50, but just not ready for the Red Hatters. I had to come up with something for myself and friends because 50 seems to be the new 40 for us. Red Bra Chics it is. Wear it, flaunt it, hide it, you are old enough to decide. So we present the new 50 year old with a red bra usually at a party.
So here is the card I made for the newest RBC, my friend Linda.  This is a multi- opening card, with a front opening bra, the cleavage revealing the letters RBC.  The girls Loved It !
Gate Fold 4 x 6
Font   Riesling 
Opens to Retro Bats One font lady

Fold up to discover Red Bra from Princess font embossed with Spellbinder Flowers
This is a Gate Fold cut away to hint at "cleavage" 
RBC from Riesling font creates cleavage when shadowed 

Shows the folds and cuts of a 12 x12
verticals scores at 3 & 9
horizontal scores at 4 & 8

I started with a 12 X12 Gray cardstock, scored at intervals shown above. The red bra was cut in half, placed on the gate-fold and then cardstock trimmed to allow "cleavage to show. RBC letters placed just so the R & B tops peak through.( I removed the black s later to spell chic since it made the c look like an o.)
  Cardstock  used was Michaels Recollections and Jeweled Metallics collections.
 Fonts - Caslon Becker 540 Swash and  Riesling. Dingbat Fonts- Retro Bats One and Princess.
 Bling on ladies hat and earrings from Making Memories collection.
ATG and Xyron adhesives, Martha Steward Score-Board. SCAL2
Envelope  miscellanous patterned paper made at 5x7 size to accomodate thickness of folded card.
            Time Consuming : yes   Worth it : Definitely !!!

  1. The Happy Birthday Linda is removable so she can pass this along to the next 50 year old. Although Linda said there was no way she was giving this card away. I need to make more cards!
