This week over at HSS we are starting things off with an Inspiration Challenge from the Jane Austen book Pride and Prejudice. It’s sure to spark many ideas with so many themes throughout the book, (honesty, love, marriage, family), you will have no problem coming up with your creation. Since Pride and Prejudice focuses on young ladies in search of husbands I chose to make a card for a bride-to-be. Because I am big into fashion I tend to think about costumes of the period and the first thing I thought of were those wonderful dresses. Very frilly and feminine with lace, organza and satin. For my project I chose Whisper White to represent the upcoming wedding and Bashful Blue for luck. I used the Final Press textured impressions embossing folder to create the white background then applied Bashful Blue SU pastel. I love how it gives a hint of color. I used My Digital studio to print the Soft Flower Bashful Blue background on Whisper White and made my own dress template and accessorized it with very feminine embellishments. I had so much fun creating this card! I can’t wait to see your creations.
