More Shabby Chic ...

Hi Everybody,

So many of you have said that you like this type of Shabby Chic look for cards and so here is another done in that way.  This one is a soft yellow and coffee colour and it really is better in the hand than on photo.
I have created a chipboard effect with the birdcage from Spellbinders  Flight 1  by cutting it several times and gluing them all together.

My lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they blend beautifully with the colour scheme.

I added two really large brads alongside them and arranged Foliage around them for effect. The brads are some that you can add your own colour to the centres and then cover with a plastic dome and I got them from my local craft shop.

I have tucked lace flowers into the distressed edges around the card  and machine stitched around the two layers of papers.

I really like this style of card as it is something that you can go to town with and add lots of beautiful embellishments.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
