Shabby Chic Card

Hello Lovely People,

Today I am here with a creation to feature handmade flowers and leaves from Itsybitsy(Juniper Passion and Royal Ferns) . I would like to thank Itsybitsy for sending me this beautiful stuff. This pack has a wonderful combination of flowers, leaves and butterflies in a single pack which is like a complete embellishment package that a project would need. Please click on the link in the Supplies list to buy these beautiful flowers for your projects to add more beauty and elegance!

Now, a little about the project . This is my first try at a Shabby Chic Card. The handmade flowers from Itsy Bitsy add a lot of interest to the card. I have distressed the edges of the front panel. I have coated the resin embellishment with Frosted Sugar Powder, and added shaker elements to the frame (check out the video for that). Then I arranged the flowers and the leaves. and added some rhinestone embellishments, lace trim, some die cut leaves and doily and sentiment tiles. I also added a few more flowers from my Itsybitsy flower stash. I have stuck all these flowers and embellishments to the card front using the super strong silicon glue. The layer below the front panel has also been distressed at the edges and I have used Distress Ink to ink the panel. I have added a lace to the card base and added foam to pop up the front panel. The supplies have been listed below .
Hope you like the card, do leave your comments!
