shabby chic card {SA CRAFTERS}

hello scrappy friends!

it is my turn today on SA CRAFTERS' blog and i decided to create an all-occasions girly card with some of their lovely designs.

i started by altering the edges of the white base card with black ink pad. once i was satisfied with the result i took a card from PRIMA marketing 4 x 6" journaling cards pad {epiphany collection}, cut it to fit the card base, ruffled its edges with TIM HOLTZ paper distresser and adhered it with mounting foam tape. 

for the second layer i used a card from PRIMA marketing 3x4" artist trading cards pad {epiphany collection}. i added a dimensional pattern on it using SA CRAFTERS 6x6" honeycomb stencil and texture paste. once the paste has dried, i mat the card on black cardstock and adhered it to the base using foam tape.

to frame the stamped sentiment {TIM HOLTZ good thoughts stamp set}, i used SA CRAFTERS chipboard frames 3 pieces set, which i altered with VERSAMARK watermark stamp pad and CLEARSNAP black embossing powder for the sides and TIM HOLTZ tattered rose embossing powder for the frame.

i used a combination of TIM HOLTZ old paper and spun sugar distress ink to give vintage look and feel to my quote. i altered the butterflies {mini butterflies 4 pcs. chipboard set} using the same heat embossing products. i added a dot of RANGER liquid pearls in the middle of the butterflies to give them more vintage look.

after i adhered all the chippies, i added the ribbon bow, the pearls and the mini roses {KAISERCRAFT} to finish off my design.

and here is the step-by-step YOUTUBE tutorial:

i hope you enjoyed my post!

 hugs'n smiles,
