With this beauty right here! She is a master at CAS cards and I think she may be branching out a bit. What do you think of her skills at the Shabby Chic look? When she showed me this card, I seriously let out an audible gasp! It’s gorgeousness literally stopped me in my tracks. I e-mailed her right away praising her goddess-ness and begging her to let me share it with you. Thank goodness she said YES!
This is what she said in her blog post for this card:
"As you know, Shabby Chic is not my normal style. But after making my first Shabby Chic card the other day, I had to make another one. I have never used this many layers on a card! But, what fun!
- the inking was done with white craft ink direct to paper on both the card base and the embossed layer.
- the flower contains 3 layers. The top is vellum that was die cut, then embossed. It is layered over 2 white die cut flowers.
- The doily is not a die cut, it was purchased at AC Moore in the baking section.
A new tutorial and challenge on Shabby Chic design was added to StampNation this week. There are now 185 video tutorials on StampNation! WOW! You should head over and check us out. The ladies there are a hoot!"
Thanks for letting me share your post, Maureen, this card is stunning! If you are wondering who Maureen is, she is my dear friend, she runs the challenges at StampNation and writes tutorials for the site. I had the great pleasure of meeting her recently, which you can read about: check it out here.
