I just love how my card turned out today. This is my first successful attempt at the shabby-chic look. I've long admired how people create fabulous projects in this style and I tried it several times in the past but everything I created ended up in the trash. Well, not this time! LOL!!!
I recently hunted my local craft store for shabby style papers and embellishments, then I went through my stash and pulled out everything with a shabby feel. I stored all these supplies together in my "shabby" file and when I decided to go the shabby-chic route with this card I simply pulled out my supply file.
I used a sentiment from Framed Greetings and the frame and die from Textile Rectangles for the main panel then tucked a tiny strip of pearls under the sentiment.
The faux crochet border die and mini rolled roses die are perfect accents for a shabby-chic card when paired with a few pearls and some lace. The brown seam binding is from the Martha Stewart line...a little shinier than I wanted but it was all I could find.
I hope you'll take some time to play along with this week's sketch. Here are all the details:
There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC8. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
