Elegant Jane Austen Card in Blue and White

Hi Dreamers!
How is your week going?  Doing good here.  I sent out the box of 50 cards to my customer yesterday. So, all done with that!!  Today's card is one of the cards that went into the order.   I love this Jane Austen set from Artistic Outpost!! This is the second card I made with this set and I have a couple more on the work table that are almost finished.   I used one of my favorite color palettes for elegant cards---blue and white. 

Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento, Bordering Blue Stampin' Up
CS: white, Bordering Blue (Stampin' Up)


  • Make a card from Bordering Blue CS
  • On white CS stamp the background stamp (also in the Jane's Countryside set) with Bordering Blue ink stamping off once
  • Stamp the Jane Austen figure and the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink
  • Add to card base

This went  together pretty quickly once I got the placement of each stamp correct.  A few did go in the trash basket...LOL  I think this could be used for any occasion by changing  the sentiment--like a birthday or get well too.  I would also add a sentiment to inside for a birthday card.   For the inside of this card, I stamped the background only.

*********A few Fun Challenges for my Blue/White Jane Austen card:
Artistic Outpost: anything goes with AO stamp
Cards in Envy: Retro and must be A2 size
4 Krafty Girlz: anything goes
Charisma Cardz: favorite color combination----mine is blue and white--what could be more classic??!!
Divas by Design: anything goes

So, for my next post I have some vintage cards made using embossing folders and no stamping.  Eek!!  Did I say no stamping??!!  Yes, well just once in awhile it is fun to not stamp.  LOL.  I hope you have a great day!!  Love ya.
