Shabby Chic !

Hi everyone i hope you are all well , the weather here is gorgeous right now and once again whilst hubby has been working hard in the garden ive been crafting oh and just a little housework too !
So here is my first post today a Shabby Chic card and i hope that you like it .

The card

Lace detail 

The sentiment and flower

Heres how i made it !

I used an 8x8 card blank and covered it in a piece of backing paper . Next i tied around the card to the left side a piece of lace and added a flower with a brad in the centre to the middle of the bow .
I then added the sewing machine topper that i made up with 5 layers fixed together with silicone glue and to the top left corner of that i added a button with frayed string ( simple yet effective i think ) and a tassle to the top right corner of the topper .
I then added the especially for you sentiment with a little lace and a brad and to finish i made a flower with a brad in the centre .
Everything on this card apart from the lace , brads and tassle was taken from
Shabby Chic Compendium Collection
by Debbi Moore Designs
to make the flowers i printed onto white vellum flowers from the rom and put the layers together using a brad in the middle , the sentiment was also printed onto vellum with a little scrap of lace and a brad .
Thank you for stopping by !
