Shabby Romantic Card


I’m popping in this morning for a quick visit to share a card. All the boys are sleepin in…so I’m thinking it’s a perfect time to curl up with a cup of tea and a book. 

It all started with a gigantic pile of old books that I’ve recently acquired for classes. I used some of the pages to make these sweet little pink flowers. The paper here are from Pink Paislee and Crate.

I added flocking powder to these shabby pink book page flowers. I think it gives them a wonderful texture and softens the edges. The vintage image is from Graphic’s Fairy. I layered it over a ruffle of well inked doily and topped it off with a few flourishes cut with the Cricut, a small resin lock plate and a super sheer bow with vintage button.

I added a few pearly accents to a crimped and inked craft paper frame to make it extra feminine.

Today in the shop I’ll be working on the project for our first class in the new location. All I can say is…they better be ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work…because this is going to be a project with a lot of layering lol. Okay off to enjoy my tea while it’s still quiet. Hope you all have a wonderful day and find some time to be creative.

Update….I’ve just  listed this card in the Etsy Shop. Hop on over to check it out : )

  1. Gorgeous! Love the shabby, soft look. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful projects! You are the person I learned the most from. Whenever I need inspiration I visit your blog:).

  2. Ginny, this card looks so charming, so romantic, and so mysterious. The No.24. What could that signify? An address, your age, the amount of roses blooming in your printed garden? Virginia
