Shabby Chic - CD Sunday Challenge 4th June

I'm a week late blogging for the CD Sunday Challenge - I'm so sorry fellow teamies.
Meg has chosen Shabby Chic as her theme. I love to see shabby chic cards but have never tried to make one. This was my attempt:

I printed a backing paper onto the both sides of a piece of card using a paper from My Craft Studio - Inserts and Backgrounds Everyday CD. I then partially cut a die from the front using Tonic Topnote Trellis Base Die Set and folded half the front back on it's self. I then embellished the card using some pink jute roll from Poundland, lace and flowers from my stash. At this point I really liked this card but thought it wasn't very shabby chic so inked the edges and scuffed them with the blade of a scissors. That's when I decided this type of card wasn't for me.
I hope we have lots of entries for the challenge so I can learn how to do this style as I do like Shabby Chic cards. 


  1. Lovely card, Your card is very pretty and a lovely design, well done
    You were not the only one with this challenge that was out of our comfort zone,

  2. Join the club with not being really familiar with Shabby Chic. Many make wonderful examples but I think we three are learning. I too love to look at them. I love the fact that our challenges can be so different and stretch us. Glad you are OK enough to join us Pamela. I like your Shabby Chic.

  3. Love the card Pamela everything you need to create shabby chic is there and beautifully put together

  4. We had shabby chic as a challenge over at Sweet Stamoin' recently and my teamies and I all really struggled with it! Your card looks fab, love the texture x

  5. Very pretty Pamela and I love the lace detail.

  6. So pretty. Yes - it does look like the same jute - I got mine in Poundland! I tried to add some colour cloud to tone it down a bit for my card.
