Hiya, today I have a gorgeous Vintage Shabby Chic style card for you that I have called Autumn Floral but which actually could be used and made at any time of the year.
I called it that because of the shades I used on the card but those shades are not limited to being used in Autumn plus of course you could completely change the colours used and get a completely fresh look. The other day Phill Martin was asking on twitter how people start their cards, for him he said he started with the shape and size of the card, for me it is just an element, a theme, something I have seen in a completely different context for eg a piece of fashion, but in this case the card started with the colours.
This was actually a birthday card I made for a friend of my Mum and these colours happen to be some of her favourites. I then worked from that point grabbing out to start with papers from my stash and putting them together to see what ones I liked together. I then moved from papers to embellishments and piled up a lot of different things that I may or may not have used but gave me my inspiration pile – this also included my paper flowers. And that is where the video starts with that pile of goodies on the table in front of us. So now lets go and see how the card turns out with my Vintage Shabby Chic Autumn Floral Card video:-
