Thanks a Bunch - House of Cards

August 25, 2014

Hello! Welcome to my second post for House of Cards challenge. As you may know I'm part of the Vintage/Shabby Chic team, and I will always be posting my project on the last week of the month. House of Cards challenge is now running monthly to give you all more time to link up your creations. Throughout the month, various teams, representing a different style, present their inspiration projects, and now it's my team's turn.

This month our challenge is a sketch! Check it out:

When I saw this sketch all I could imagine was ribbon and lace, with lace die cut borders. And so this is what I came up with:

Spellbinders - Classic Edges Two, Classic Decorative Inserts Three, A2 Matting Basics A, Timeless Rectangles.
Craft Concepts - More Dots embossing folder
Graciellie Design Paper - Keys & Roses
Flourishes - Zinnia stamp set
Memento ink in Bamboo Leaves
Distress Embossing ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Pearlescent
ZAP! heat tool
Leather textured cardstock in soft pink
Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock
White Pearl Linen cardstock
2 1/2" white lace
Baby Rhinestones - Silver
Baby Pearls - LeCreme

I applied the sketch horizontally, meaning that my card is horizontal folded. I crossed a piece of lace, followed by a die cut lace border and ribbon to achieve the sketch's pattern.

I die cut two labels and layered one over the other to create a nice frame. I stamped the sentiment first, then stenciled the label with embossing ink and heat set it with pearlescent embossing powder.

I completed the design with a chunky little bow and some crystals and pearls.

There's still time to join our challenge at House of Cards. Click here to link up your creation. Cards and other kinds of projects are welcome, in any and every style, as long as it follows our guidelines.
