Roses & Butterflies Shabby Chic Card | Couture Creations


Hi Kerrie  back for Couture Creations and for my post today I created this very simple shabby chic look card for a very special friend's birthday, but this card can be used for any occasion.

I have used the gorgeous Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden 6x6 Paper Pad along with a couple of the newest release Everyday Essentials and Frames n Frills dies. These collections are gorgeous and it will be hard for you to not want them all.

Onto my tutorial 

I started off by die cutting 2 x Cycad Fern from the Everyday Essentials Collection in green paper with a small text

I also die cut from the Frames n Frills collection, Anastasia Set. 1 x outside doily and 2 x border doily in a green patterned paper and then 1 x inside plain circle from a floral pattern

I then cut down the background patterned paper to 14.5cm x 14.5cm and distressed the edges of  it and also the floral circle

I then adhered the border doily strips onto a piece of ruffled trim using the 3mm double sided adhesive tape. I have placed the tape onto the back too for adhering to card base

I then layered it all onto the base making sure to adhere the trim to the background patterned paper before it goes onto the base card.

I  pinched the leaves to give them some life and I also slightly scrunched the doily base to give it some character so as not to be flat.
I added some muslin and premade flowers, but you could create your own flowers from some matching Vintage Rose Garden patterned papers.

Thanks so much for popping by ..please don't forget to leave a comment and share with your friends
