The Kraft Journal is hosting a new challenge this week: Shabby Chic. Cardabilities also has a new sketch (seen below). I decided to combine the two challenges with a couple of birthday challenges (you can never have too many birthday cards stashed!) for this card.
The tent fold base was made from kraft card stock and Tim Holtz' Distress Stain in Picket Fence was applied along the edges. Ivory card stock was cut to size and distressed along the edges. Kaisercrafts Chantuese Collection paper was also cut to size and distressed. Ivory card stock was die cut using Spellbinders' Devine Eleoquence. Kraft card stock was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, die cut using Spellbinders' Labels Four and Picket Fence applied along the edges.
Next, ivory card stock had Quietfire's Happy Birthday stamped in black and then was die cut using Spellbinders's Ribbon Banners. The die was trimmed as shown.
Seam binding was dyed using Tim Holtz' Distress Stain in Spun Sugar. A double bow and a wrap were made and applied. A scrap piece of lace ribbon was attached. Bling adhered at will. :)
Hope you like the shabby birthday card! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a good Wednesday!
