Thinking of you card

Happy new year everyone, I hope you all had a lovely time with your nearest & dearest?
Today I’m sharing with you my first make of 2018…I’m finding it very difficult to get out of Christmas craft mode, I’m sure i’m not the only one.
So yesterday while the rain was pouring I made this card.

I have used a selection of floral embellishments including real dried lavender…the card smells devine!

To start I covered the card with 3 different pieces of patterned paper from the shabby chic range from Crafters Companion.


I distressed the edges of the papers with scissors and then inked the edges with distress ink to make each layer stand out.
Next I attached a length of burlap ribbon across the front of the card and attached a selection of paper flowers, dried lavender bead sprays and frosted berries as shown.



To finish, I stamped ‘thinking of you’ sentiment onto a die cut circle. I attached this as shown with foam pad and then added a twine bow and paper flower.


Thanks for popping by.
