Two Cards using Shabby Chic Backgrounds

Hi Bloggers

With new dies & new papers on my work table, what does a girl do?

She just has to try some of them out - just to make sure they are OK to sell of course! Not just for fun!


 The first card is in pastel dusty pinks:



  • Pale pink Spotted paper on ivory cardstock with pink matting
  • pink antique nylon ribbon is wrapped around the inside of the card & tied into a bow on the front - I use clear clue dots to keep the lace in place & to anchor the ties where I want them
  • white puffy rose is inserted through a rose die (m356) with its edges tinged with my blusher, pale pink rosebuds, rose leaves, cherry blossoms, pink tassel & pale pink satin ribbon
  • waterfall 1 die (m376) with blush pearl highlights




  • inside the card shows the ribbon wrap with tags for sentiments
  • pale pink rose, a clock from cut & create sheet of Shabby Chic Backgrounds foam mounted on pink cardstock & a white doily




 The second card uses green as a highlight color:

  • Silver grey damask on ivory cardstock
  • Champagne organza ribbon in a bow with a hatpin, pearl & green bead is pinned through the bow
  • green paper leaves, cherry blossoms & an apple blossom flower on the side of foam mounted oval frame die (p6745) with cut & create ephemera flower






  • the oval (from the same die on the front of the card) is foam mounted with a small embellishment
  • the green die cut is from die m242 - Elegant Lines
  • the other inside is a panel from the same patterned paper with a die cut flower from the same paper - this die is an old one from my stash




Hope the 2 cards give you some ideas for your 'card ideas file' as well as showing some of the die cuts in action

Bye for now
Meg
