How to use scraps to make lovely shabby chic card

Evening all! I haven’t blogged for a while…I don’t know where the time has gone?
Today I have a simple post using scraps to make a lovely simple card. To make this card I have used scraps of card, patterned paper and hessian. Lets face it, non of us crafters can throw anything out!

  • Cover front of DL card with patterned paper that has been distressed at the edges
  • Using hot glue fix a scrap of hessian to front of card
  • Die cut a circle out of kraft card and a fancy circle from scrap of patterned paper, glue on top of hessian
  • Take 2 strips of patterned paper a roll into thin tubes, glue these together and tie with length of twine
  • Cut a tag from scrap of contrasting paper and glue on top of paper rolls
  • die cut leaves from kraft card and colour with chalk ink, glue on top of tag
  • glue paper rose and pearl strands as shown
  • Stain MDF butterfly with chalk ink and fix to card front as shown
  • fix adhesive gems to bottom right of card

I have used Daliart chalk ink pads to colour tint, the coverage is amazing!

That’s it…quick and easy!

Thanks for popping by
