Shabby Chic with Close To My Heart Products

Hello to all my crafty friends

Welcome to 2019 & hopefully a fun creative year. To kick start the creativity I thought I would share some ways to create a Shabby Chic look with Close To My Heart products.

The Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea book started a couple of days ago & one of the new product ranges is the Feels Like Home collection, this collection has a shabby chic feel to it already so it makes it super simple to create the look.

For my first card not only did I use Feels Like Home, I also used some of the weathered pink paper from the Something Fierce Paper collection as it too had a nice shabby chic feel.

Combined with some textured paste and the the Budding Peony Stamp + Thin Cuts and a butterfly from the Butterfly Friendship Stamp + Thin Cuts, well I say the whole combination has a nice modern shabby chic feel.

I used one of the White Cards from the White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack then cut my paper to size. Once that was done I used a distress edger, you can use scissors to achieve the same look.

I cut out the Hexagon Grid Overlay from the Cricut® Artbooking Collection onto Stencil Sheets & used Opaque Matte Texture Paste onto the pink Something Fierce Paper using a pallet knife.

While the texture paste was drying I cut out the fringe border that is in the Decorative Borders thin cuts from Charcoal cardstock and stamped both the Budding Peony and the Butterfly onto white daisy cardstock in Charcola ink & coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers to lighten the colour on the butterfly I used the Colorless Blender Marker which actually removes colour not really blends.

It was all put together with some white ribbon – I think it turned out to be a very pretty shabby chic card.
I hope you enjoyed what I created, as much as I enjoyed creating it and thanks so much for taking the time to check it out.

See you soon
