shabby chic

Why I’ve fallen in love with shabby chic

So, here is some of the other shabby chic cards I made whilst on a roll at the weekend. After all these years I think I’ve finally found my crafting style, probably because it’s so forgiving as you don’t need to be perfect and have straight lines (just as well as I’m useless at that!!).
I’m not going to give a step by step guide but thought I’d list my essentials to achieve this look.

  • Glue gun (couldn’t be without this)
  • Rafia
  • ribbon
  • twine
  • lace 
  • paper flowers
  • dies(flowers, butterflies, doilies & edgables)
  • pearl rope
  • embellishments (I’ve used charms & pearls)
  • gilding polish
  • burlap
  • Die cutting machine..obviously!
