Vintage Lace Birthday Card

I have spent most of today up in my shed… crafting away whilst keeping in mind the UIU Pledge (Use It Up) 🙂

I bought sheets of chipboard months and months ago and i’ve not been using it as much as I should, so I cut up one of the big sheets today to a standard size card proportion and gave them all a coat of white acrylic paint, with a view to making the easel type cards that I love so much 🙂

I made 2 valentines cards, then my hubby asked me to make him a card for his mum’s birthday, which is tomorrow..

This is what I came up with… I had been previously working on the material panel, so I used this up and adhered it to the front of the card..

Supplies List :-

  • Chipboard
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • Frayed Burlap Distress ink
  • Chipboard Heart
  • Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Gun
  • 15mm Foundation Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Light Pink Seam Binding from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Purple Trim
  • 10mm Pink Rose Leaves

Thanks so much for dropping in 🙂

  1. I officially want to move into the shed…I hate spiders, but would deal with them just to be close to the goodness and ideas, lol. Maybe I need the burlap??? 🙂

  2. Wow, this is so beautiful! I make cards too and adore it but always love seeing people using fabric and more solid materials in their cards, not something that I am great at. The flowers really make it so delicate. I like the idea of Use It Up too! I need to get on that!

    1. Thanks so much for the lovely comments Trudi, much appreciated 🙂 It has only been in the last few months that I have started to incorporate materials and fabrics into my crafting, have to say, I’, loving the journey 🙂
