Shabby Chic Floral Card | Photo Tutorial

Hello, bloggy friends!
I am sharing a shabby-chic card after a very long time. My current love is making stamped cards, but I do like to make layered cards from time to time. I made this for my Guest Post at Itsy Bitsy. You can check it out HERE, if you haven't already.

Here's a look at my card first :

I also have a small tutorial to share on how I created the background for my card and the products used.

Step 1 - I have used a peach colored card base which was sent to me in the kit along with a piece of pattern paper which I have distressed using a pair of scissors & colored the edges using two different shades of Distress inks.

Step 2 - After distressing, I glued the pattern paper to the cardbase & then using a stencil from Itsy Bitsy (Floral) and some Modelling Paste, I did some stenciling using a Spatula to add some texture. I also added a bit of Distress ink to the Modelling Paste to give it a hint of colour.

Here is how it looks once the stenciling is done!

Step 3 - This is what I have used for embellishing my card. The Pattern papers that you see on the left were the ones I have worked with & the little flower embellishments were created using flowers from this set. I absolutely love the Glitter Paper from Itsy Bitsy & I have used it for die-cutting my leaf & foliage. Also used some dies for embellishing my card.

This border die by Spellbinders is absolutely regal & so intricate. I absolutely love using this.

I'm linking my card to the Simon Says Stamp - Use Pink, Happy Little Stampers- Mixed Media Challenge (Nature), Fab n Funky - Fabulous Flowers, Fusion - I'm going with the inspiration picture this time. (I'm inspired by the colours of the florals) and Cards 4 Galz- Use atleast one die.

I hope you like this card of mine. I would love to hear your comments/suggestions regarding it.

Have a nice day everyone!
