Cottage Lace Shabby Chic Card

Hi Everyone,

Kerrie here with my very first post for Little Birdie Crafts. I’m so very excited and honoured to be selected as one of the designers for Little Birdie Crafts. I have loved their products for so long and they are adding more and more gorgeous products to their range.
I am also very excited to be amongst such talented ladies.
Thank You Harish and Rashmi for giving me this fabulous opportunity.

 

For my first project I have created a lovely shabby chic card using their Cottage Lace paper collection along with their corrugated board and of course their beautiful flowers.
This card is actually quite quick to create. So, if you are about to run out the door and remembered you need a card for someone special, this is the card for you!

Cut a piece of ivory cardstock down to create 6″x 6″ card base

Next cut a 5.3/4″ x 5.3/4″ square from the lace background patterned paper. Distress the edges.

 

Cut the Lace Border from the Lace & Rose Border patterned Paper into 2 x 5. 3/4″ lace pieces and distress the edges.

 

Cut a 4″ strip from corrugate board and cut down to 5.3/4″ and then tear into 2 x 2″ strips.

 

Using a dry brush swipe across the torn corrugated strips with white gesso and set aside to dry.

 

Paint Layered Dreamcatcher Primed Chipboard with Pink Ballet acrylic chalk paint and set aside to dry.

 

Using your dry brush and gesso swipe lightly on leaves from the Natalie – Moonlight Flower Pack.

Layer base lace patterned paper onto the base card.

 

Layer on corrugated board, lace strips, wood wool and painted layered dreamcatcher chipboard.

Then arrange your flower cluster using Natalie – Moonlight, Noelle – Pearl Pink and Carnation – Beaded Micro Petals.

 

To create a pigs tail on the flower bud I used a skewer.

Finish off with Pearl trim.
