Shabby Beer Mat

The Lovely Crafty Helen sent me some Beer Mats, and I made a card with them yesterday, I had that much fun I decided to make another one 😉

My good friend Deb and I were blethering on skype yesterday and she sent me some lovely vintage images which I’d been dying to use too.. and they too feature on the card I made this afternoon.

I also featured one of the beautiful flower centres that my friend Karen made and sent over to me 🙂 you should check her out on Youtube Billyfloss1968 she also sells them in her Etsy store 🙂

Shabby Chic ~ Superior Hand Baked Edible Goods

Tonight in the workshop I made a lovely little shabby chic card out of a couple of beer mats that Crafty helen had sent through to me as a wee pressie with my Stampin Up order 😉

First of all I put a layer of gesso down on the beer mats, then they both needed about 3-4 coats of white acrylic paint to cover the logos etc…

Handmade holographic embossing powdered tag…
