Today I have a card that I created for a sweet friend of mine using The Shabby Tea Room Challenge - Let's Get Scrappy. The challenge is to use what ever scraps you have to create a card, so that's what I did but I also decided to try and give my card a shabby look to go along with the scraps I used. I had so much fun making the shabby rose from the Easter card I made from my previous post that I wanted to create another and used the same layout as well.
I started out by using scraps of retired Bella Rose designer paper and punched some of the different patterns out using my square paper punch, then laid them out and glued them to a piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I used my Sizzix Top Note die and cut the quilted piece out and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. After cutting the quilted Top Note piece down around the scored edge I layered it onto another Chocolate Chip Top Note piece and added white stitching lines around the outside edge. For the rose this time I used the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch but ended up feeding each punched piece through my crimper several times to give it texture and then sponged the edges with Riding Hood Red ink.
Supplies: Tiny Tags, Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, 5 Petal Flower punch, Jewlery Tag punch, Eyelet border punch, Bella Rose DSP, Square punch, Top Note die, Ribbon, Buttons, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, White pen, Crimper, Sponge.
