Shabby Chic, take 2


As you know, Shabby Chic is not my normal style. But after making my first Shabby Chic card the other day, I had to make another one.  I have never used this many layers on a card!!  But, what fun!! 

A few notes about my card...
  •   The inking was done with white craft ink (Fresh Snow PTI) direct to paper on both the card base and the embossed layer.  
  • The flower contains 3 layers.  The top is vellum, that was die cut, then embossed.  It is layered over 2 white die cut flowers. 
  • The doily is not a die cut, it was purchased at AC Moore in the baking section.
 A new tutorial and challenge on Shabby Chic design was added to StampNation this week.  There are now 182 video tutorial on StampNation, WOW!!  You should head over and check us out.  The ladies there sure are a hoot!
