Today I have a set of 3 birthday cards to share created for Manor House Creations using flowers and frames from the Spring 2013 Collection.
Distressing edges, paint splats and machine stitching are a few techniques to achieve a shabby chic feel to your cards.
MHC product: Ooh la la, Minuettes - cream pink grey
On this 2nd card I have used the ornate frame-scallop white backed with pp and embellished with cluster of flowers. Just use a pencil to trace the inside of the frame as a template, cut 1/2cm around the pencil line, then adhere paper to back of frame with glue.
I altered the background with a stencil and texture paste, then flicked some Glimmer Glaze in 2 shades of green. To create some softness and a shabby feel I smudges some of the texture paste over the stencilled design.
MHC product: Floral Mix - Arielle, Mini Blush Roses - soft gold, Ornate Frames - scallop white
On my last card I have used the ornate frame-gothic white which I backed with paper, then added a greeting sticker.
I embellished the frame with the camel coloured flower from mixed floral tiffany pack, which I altered by pulling out the stamens and replacing with a wooden button topped with a pearl embellishment, and teamed with a soft gold tea rose.
