Hello everyone, I hope you are all well?

Today I’m sharing with you how I made this rustic card…which took me a week to finish thanks to crafters block!

I made this card using the rustic wedding collection from Crafters Companion. This is simply the most beautiful collection of dies and papers and is perfect for making rustic/shabby chic projects. The natural colour palette is gorgeous however items do not need to necessarily be used for wedding themes.

Products used

From rustic wedding collection:

Patterned kraft card

self adhesive hessian

Patterned paper

quilling flower die set

heart die

Other products used:

8X8 card blank

Dawn Bibby lace

cream card

spellbinders die

filigree heart die

selection of paper flowers


Here’s what I did

Firstly  I cut a piece of patterned kraft card to fit the card blank, the edges were distressed with scissors and inked the edges with brown ink.

I tore a selection of patterned papers and again inked the edges with brown ink before layering them onto the card front. Then I added a decorative die cut in cream card and a piece of crocheted lace. Next I added a diet cut hessian heart using the outside cutting edge of the lace heart from the set.  Then I added the ‘love’ sentiment which I had cut from kraft card.

Next I covered a filigree heart die cut with pearl gilding polish to give a metallic finish. Once the gilding polish was dry a buffed with some dry paper towel to give added shine.

This was then added to the card front as shown.

The card was then finished with a quadruple raffia bow. I added a selection of paper flowers and die cut flourishes. Pearls were also added to complete the rustic look.
