Shabby Blue Christmas Card

Hello everyone,

I created a shabby blue Christmas Card:


I used several layers of one color, and patterned cardstock, all with distressed edges and painted with distress white paint to create this card.



Some of the cardstock layers were attached with adhesive foam to give it extra dimension.


I created the sentiment on my PC, printed it on heavy white cardstock and cut it in shape of banner.


I used blue seambinding ribbon to create this shabby quadruple bow. I distressed it with white distress paint and added a glittery snowflake on top.

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Cardabilities Challenge Sketch #110

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #235 "Stripes"

Crafty Catz Challenge #253 Anything Goes
and

Crafty Creations Challenge #275 Brads, Buttons or Bows, I chose a bow. :)

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
Samra

    3. I loooove making pink cards! Cause they fit so well my favorite style which is shabby chic. I guess you could make shabby chic card in any pastel color, but I think pink and white suits that style the best.
