Shabby Butterfly

An almost Shabby Chic card with a beautiful butterfly digital image from Antique Images.  I followed the sketch at Friday Sketches and added a bit of faux stitching.

Oops, after loading the sketch I see I missed the dots in the corners.  Now I see that some pearls would finish my card off nicely.

Supplies:  cream square card blank, off white card stock, paper doily, Prima Botanical Collection dp, printed image from Antique Images, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Marker in Old Paper, Crafters Companion glue runner, ds tape.

Tools:  Big Shot, QuicKutz Nesting Circles and Nesting Lace Circles dies.

  1. This is awesome. Like the vintage feel. Great job with the stitching. I think some peals would look great in the corner.

  2. Jenny...your shabby chic card is beautiful and I am so glad you entered it into our challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. I love the soft colors.

  3. Wonderful card Jenny, that butterfly is lovely.

  4. Jenny, your cards are absolutely gorgeous. I love the top one, so simple and yet so effective. I have some of those little doileys but was wondering what I could do with them. Do you mind if I use your ideas, and give you the credit on my blog.
