Hi everyone! It’s Jessica here and welcome back to another video tutorial. This time I have a new theme to share with you! Do you ever feel inspired by your clothing, perhaps you love the print, or maybe the colors catch your eye? I personally have a lot of floral clothing and I’ve always wanted to recreate them into cards! This time I picked a Zara dress with red, pink, and purple flowers. It’s really a jump from my comfort zone as I’ve never paired these colors together. But I love the end result so much! I hope this video will inspire you to take a look around your house or peek into your wardrobe for some crafty inspirations!
