Hi sweet friends, another card to share today with a little bit of a vintage shabby feel. It was one of those cards that when I thought I was done, I wasn’t done and my mom kept saying – ‘Needs something else’. Who would have thought she’d sit and craft along with me, but she has to fetch absolutely everything I need. I can hardly remember where things are so it’s a hoot with me describing its last known location. Since she’s a crafter but not a papercrafter, I suppose sending her to hunt is just like when my Dad would send me to his tool shed for a specific wrench. Didn’t he know, all wrenches are the same? Today I picked a lovely border to work with – Spellbinders Deco Duality. This is an easy card that’s easily replicated.
The card base is 5-1/2 x 7-1/2.
I selected Spellbinders Deco Duality to frame the sides of my card and used the other side of the die template (peeking out from underneath my layer) as a fabulous border. The borders were all stenciled through the die template just to add some visual interest. I used a delicate sentiment from Quietfire Designs – Just for You Set and stamped it on Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.
The flowers are made using Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers – you can see a tutorial for these quick and easy flowers HERE. The final touch is bow made with the 2.5″ tulle you can buy on rolls at the fabric store. I created a small cluster of flowers using the three smallest petals from the set for each flower.
