One flew over the cuckoo’s nest ~ shabby stylie

Would you believe that I’ve not been in my workshop for about 3 days .. .. I spent the whole weekend shopping with wee Sarah getting her organised for her trip to sunny Spain..

It was good to be back up there tonight, and I made it a hat trick tonight… A card with matching sleeve envelope and tag.

I used quite a few bits and bobs to create the card .. all listed below

  • Natural Cardstock from Stampin Up
  • Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 6 x 6 Patterned Paper
  • Pink Paislee No. 88 Ephemera Pack
  • Seam Binding and Cherry Blossom Flower & Stick Pin from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Lace Doily from Poundland
  • Copic Marker in Gold to colour stick pin
Then I made a wee tag to go along with the card, I quite enjoy making everything to match… just seems to make it all complete..
I made the tag with the leftovers from the sheet of 6 x 6 paper that I made the card from, roughed up the edges, added some seam binding and a few flowers and it was done πŸ™‚
The I made the matching sleeve envelope, I used the same cardstock that I used for the card, it used up a whole A4 sheet except for a tiny wee strip that I cut off along the top..
The front was stamped with Versamagic and embossed with Enchanted Gold embossing powder, I wrapped some cotton lace around the whole card and then the same again with seam binding, topped off with a small 10mm rose πŸ™‚
and the final shabby chic trio …

Shabby Chic Stepper Card

I picked up a copy of the Docrafts Creativity Magazine at my local garden centre when I stopped in there today to pick up sawdust for mucking out the animals tomorrow πŸ™‚

So whilst I was on my way home (hubby driving) I flicked through the mag, just looking at the pictures (as you do lol) and there was a card there that caught my eye straight away.. a step card, now whilst there were no dimensions given in the mag, once I got home and headed up to the workshop, I kinda figured out my own as I went along.

I took a piece of 12 x 12 Cardstock and cut it down to 12″ x 4″, then I scored it at 4″, 8″ & 10″ and thats the basis for this card…

I love this shape of card, probably because I;ve never made one with these dimensions before πŸ™‚

I used Bazzill textured cardstock for the base in a lovely shade of olive green

The patterned paper & diecut ephemera are from the Butterfly Garden Range by Pink Paislee.. I absolutely adore this shabby chic feel paper ..

Some beautiful 1920’s soft pink vintage seam binding….

Topped off by a little ephemera piece and a delicate pink rose from Wild Orchid Crafts πŸ™‚
