Floral Love Card!

This time a simple card with just diecuts.

This Memory box Sonora Rose die is a win from DCAM challenge and, took it from India home and was waiting to give a shot.

Its just a single rose die with 2 leaves of various sizes and with buds. I Diecut, embossed and colored the roses using Worn Lipstick, Tattered rose and Mustard seed DIs. And for leaves and buds, used Peeled paint  and at edges Gathered twigs DIs.

Just popped these on a doily using foam dots to give 3 D effects to roses. To make the small rose, i just cut the outer whorls of the rose and distressed with Mustard Seed DI

Sentiment is stamped, edges were rounded and few pink pearls as accents to finish off the card.

Hope you like this.

Layered Shabby Chic card !

Hi Friends,

Today's card is just another Shabby chic card which is my favorite style for its soothing tones and pastel shades. Hope i have pulled this out to an extent. Love to hear it from you.

Its a 6x6 card and of course a layered one. Want to play with new products in my stash. A week back, its my 3rd blogoversary and so gifted myself with awesome crochet laces and trims. And the one you see here is one of that awesome pieces. Just tinted partly with Tattered rose DI.

Except the central flower all are store bought and the central one is made from CL sunflower die by distressing with Tattered rose DI, misting and shaped with pollen added. Just above the crochet lace is the CL Tiffany lacy border which is also tinted with the Tattered rose DI.

Flower clusters are added to the doily with CL Ivy leaves which are again distressed with Shabby shutters and crushed olive DIs. Sentiment is heat embossed on a venetian frame label. The pps are from Vintage notes and the Spellbinders corner fluorishes are distressed and added to the corners. Few pearls added as accents.

(If anyone need such laces, kindly mail me..am happy to grab some for you in my next trip to India as here shipping charges within UAE is absolutely free in this craft store)
