Hi all

I have a few cards i made using the Simply Creative Shabby Chic papers with the step by steps for you to follow. There are more samples on my gallery

  1. Cover a 6x6 card with patterned paper
  2. Cut a wide strip of pink patterned paper and adhere to center of card
  3. Cut a white doily in half and adhere at opposite sides of the pink paper
  4. Cut out a 7 cm x 5cm strip of paper and adhere to center of pink paper
  5. Take a couple of washi tapes and cut two strips of different lengths. Adhere to middle of card.
  6. Adhere a wooden frame over washi tape.
  7. Die-cut three feathers out of white card. Cover the tops of the feathers with gold washi tape and adhere to frame.

  1. Take a 6 x 6 card blank and cover both sides with matching patterned paper
  2. Adhere a 6 x 6 sheet of patterned paper inside the card 
  3. Fold the two ends over each other like you would if creating a gate fold card
  4. Draw a circle in the middle of the two flaps and cut out 
  5. in the centre of the card add a 4 cm wide strip and then cut out two scalloped circles and layer them up.
  6. Cut out a sentiment and add to centre of circle
  7. Place the card over a sheet of acetate and mark out the shape of the card before cutting out.
  8. Glue the acetate to the top flap and fold the edges of the bottom flap over to make a stand
