My first Shabby chic card .I have made it specially for my best friend since childhood ,will gift her on friendship day.She loves all girly things,laces,ruffles ,soft colors..so I hope she is going to like this card too !
It has lots of layers ,textures and stitching .The rectangular panel on left side has light texture made with comb n gesso (could not capture it in photo :( !!). For the banner like panel I have made ruffles with butter paper.For it I cut two strips of butter paper stitched them loosely and pulled the thread gentle pushing the strips in one direction .Then colored it randomly with light pink n white color .It curled and didn't stay flat so I glued it to a pattern paper strip.
Made rosette with pink pattern paper distressed it lightly with pink color and the rectangle over it has gauze as base .I made a diamond pattern on it with gesso (not visible again :( ! ).
Almost everything on this card has a coat of home-made gesso. Finished it off with small handmade roses and plastic beads swirl .These are the papers used for the card.
It is based on this inspirational photo ...
and this sketch

All the panels are made from old invite,packaging tissue/butter paper,flowers are made of paper from old envelope.
