This might just be my personal favorite of all the challenges for HYCCT. With CAKath's challenge to use punches or dies to create something special, I knew I would 'sew' a corset card. The template is from Sara Sandberg. I most of all wanted to make something very feminine to perhaps lift the spirits of someone whose confidence could use a boost!
I actually cut into a piece of My Mind's Eye Lush flocked damask paper for half the corset and a shimmer white for the other side. The shimmer paper was stamped with the lace KaiserCraft cling stamp and embossed with Silver Pearl. I did use 24 grommets to lace the pieces together, half black/half white. There is a brass heart tied to the very tip of the bodice. And I rummaged through my vintage laces to find a couple of special tidbits to use top and bottom. The ~Adore~ is nestled between that gorgeous damask. I had cut the sea green blue card that slips inside.
Thank you my friend, Kathy for issuing this wonderfully creative challenge. I would love to have a peak at who selects this card...just knowing someone will be lifted up it is priceless.
