Hi, everyone! Teri here to show you how to make a Shabby Chic Miss You Card. What a sweet way to let a favorite person know you miss them! Let’s get started.
Shabby Chic Miss You Circle Frame Focal
Start by adhering a few strips of patterned paper on a larger piece of patterned paper. Since I wanted a shabby look so I kept a soft color palette and used papers with a rustic theme.
Set a large 3D Foam Circle Frame onto your paper panel. Use your scissors to cut around the circle.
Flip the circle over. Apply adhesive along the edges and add some photo corners around it. Just let the tip of the corners be seen it gives the circle pointed edges.
Decorate the Card
Adhere the circle onto a card covered with a wood-themed patterned paper. Add some 3D Foam Butterflies to the middle of the circle. Apply flock to the butterflies and the circle. I find it’s easier when covering a large number of foam shapes with flock (or glitter) to work in one section at a time. For this card, I started by adding the flock to the butterflies. Then I put the flock onto the circle.
Add a few sequins to the card. Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock and place it below the circle.
Give the card a little glitz by adding some Dots onto the edges and applying foil on top. Keeping with the soft color scheme of the card, I used silver Metallic Transfer Foil. You could create a more dramatic look by using a bolder color, like gold or copper!
I hope you are inspired to create a card by today’s post! Consider making a shabby chic-inspired card or try one of the techniques I’ve shared!
