Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Card

Are you intimidated by Shabby Chic styles?  No need to fear, they are really pretty easy and very fun.  I’m going to show you in a few steps how to add some easy techniques to achieve this trendy look.


Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Card Supplies:


Step 1.  Begin with a 4 x 6″ card base.

Step 2.  Cut a slightly smaller panel and emboss.  Sand the raised design.


Step 3.  Cut remaining mats as shown for card.  Use a distressing tool to roughen the edges.


Step 4. Have you ever wished that you could match embellishments to a patterned paper, and you just didn’t have the right colors?  It is so easy to create your own designer papers using Core’dinations and a simple background stamping.  That way, you can create whatever you imagine. Randomly stamp a small image using an opaque ink.


Step 5. Machine stitch the stamped panel and the backing panel together.

Step 6.  Add flower clusters, cheesecloth and sentiment as shown.

eSee, it’s really easy to put together your own shabby chic card.  Here are the key ideas to incorporate to get this look -

  • Soft, muted colors
  • Distressed edges
  • Stitching
  • Sanded embossed designs – especially florals
  • Lots of layers with textures
