they also provided the design team with loads of fab goodies and so of course the team went mad making invitations, favors, cards, gifts and place tags...in short, everything one would need to pamper a bride-to-be or expectant mum on her special day! go check out the flickr gallery!!!
since lhj & i were just leaving for vacation when this challenge was announced, and i knew i'd have a bit of catching up to do when we got home, i--sadly but practically--opted out of the product gallery, but i have made a slightly funky, vaguely vintagey bridal shower card for the occasion. wanna see?
the text going around the central design of the card says, "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" and i used that tradition to guide my product choices, as well. i have the vintage bride image (OLD), some k&co glittery dimensional stickers (NEW) (well...new-ish...), a length of of gorgeous scalloppy lace i "liberated" from my mother's sewing room (BORROWED) (kinda!) and a piece of basic grey "lily kate" patterned paper (BLUE)!
since blogger sets the image sizes based on having vaguely square photos, it's hard to see detail on this long and narrow card (it's roughly 5 x 10"...an odd size, i know...but it was built around the image & i just *hated* the idea of cropping that pretty--if oddly proportioned--oval!) so here is a detail shot which shows how the whole oval panel is raised on a layer of foam tape to better feature the texture of the lace, and the little sticky-back pearls i added at the very end:
