Artisan Finalist Blog Hop — Day 7

Here we are on Day 7 of our blog hop now.  If you’ve arrived here from Melissa Stout’s blog, welcome.  If not, you’re welcome too!  Please feel free to join us in the blog hop.

My project today is another of my card entries.  This one is so NOT me!  I really felt like I needed to have a variety of styles in my submission, so this is my attempt at vintage/shabby chic.

I started by embossing the crumb cake card stock with white embossing powder using the Woodgrain background stamp.  I sewed around the pink Twitterpated paper and roughed up the edges, and then I piled on the embellishments.  This is where I have a hard time — I never know when to stop!  I glittered up a chipboard butterfly with Dazzling Diamonds and then added some glass glitter on top of that (you can never have too much bling, right?).  I tied a big, scrunchy (is that a word?) bow with seam binding ribbon, which I embellished with a layered flower.

My favorite part is the Hello, Doily stamp.  I stamped it on vellum paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then cut it out by hand.  It almost looks like a real doily that way.

Well, now it’s time to hop on over to Sandie Conner’s blog.  She has a treat for you today.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the doily on vellum – have never seen it done that way but will certainly try it! Thanks for sharing the definition of shabby chic!
