My new supplies are finally here!!! After waiting for more that 2 weeks for my package to arrive. That’s the joy of living in Europe and ordering from USA, but is was worth it!

So in this card I broke out some of my new stamps. I used a gorgeous woman’s silhouette stamp and I wanted to give her a gift… an old-fashioned bonnet hat!

This card is for all Jane-Austen-fans out there! (Inspired by my good friend Antigoni, who read her books a dozen hundred times).

and a closer look of that hat

Enjoy the video and scroll down for a list of all the supplies used. Thanks for visiting and commenting!



  1. OMG what a sweet card. I just love the bonnet you have created! So clever of you. I’m a big Jane Austen fan too and this card would be perfect for anyone who enjoys the classics. Gorgeous!

  2. Another amazing card! The bonnet is the so inspired. Jane Austin, herself, would love this card! As always, this is a winner!

  3. Hi Vicky
    I loved the card and the idea
    I imagine your desires when shopping, because I feel the same.
    I do not buy as much as you but when I do not see when it arrives.
    Just do not know many shops to buy online you can recommend me?.
    Thanks! and I congratulate you on your talent.
    Have a nice week
    Hugs Isabel

  4. You so ROCK in my world–I love stamping and I love Jane Austen! This card could not be any more fun and creative! Love you and your blog…and the happy music by the uber talented A.!

  5. Thanks for the tutorial. Great idea, LOVE it 🙂 Love the vintage look of this card. I soo have to get this stamp set now 🙂

  6. The bonnet is outstanding – your creativity is amazing. Love the ribbon trim …. how I wish I could come up with a fraction of your ideas.

  7. Dear Vicky,

    we Austen-fans thank you so very much!!! (The card world seems to be full of us 🙂

    Beautiful card as always and the ribbon on the bonnet is the cherry on the pie, so to speak. I think the colour you chose are ideal for a nineteenth-century feel. Absolutely great! Thanks sooo much for sharing!!

    By the way. I would also like to know which online shops you would recommend for someone who lives in Greece and has to consider the costs for delivery. Thanks in advance!


  8. This is so beautiful. I would have never thought to even make a bonnet, let alone the ribbon touch. Thank you for sharing. This is my first time to watch your videos – it won’t be the last. I’ve learned so much from your sweet card.

  9. I was wondering if I could link to this post on my blog? I love all things Jane Austen and England, so I thought it’d be fun to share this on my blog (which is about the above mentioned things).

    Thanks! love your stuff 🙂

  10. Hi Vicky, I just came across your blog while visiting Virginia’s blog! This card is so creative and stunning. I love how you made the bonnet with the envelope pattern and ribbons!!
