Not finding an awful lot of time to do much crafting these days, up to my ears in work and my desire to craft has been well and truely zapped!

However, I did buy a new stamp set the other day and headed up to my shed to make something with it.

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) ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
