Hello Everyone! Glad you dropped in to Frilly and Funkie today. Pamellia here with my Saturday Step by Step. I have put together a lovely spring Birthday card using my two two biggest loves in my craft room right now, Pion Design Papers and mixed media products, and they are all available at Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
For this card I used the following dies and punches: Sizzix Bookplates and Tag, Sizzix Tag Collection, Sizzix Fall Foliage, Prima Crochet Doily and Sizzix Large Butterfly Punch.
I cut a large tag out using the Pion Design Day in May collection and made a white backing layer. I cut a couple of medium tags and background panels using the Pion Design Paris Flea Market collection. The ones I don't use this time around I will put to good use later!
I cut a bookplate using some white corrugated cardboard, then framed a birthday greeting from the Pion Design Day in May collection.
I added a touch of Picket Fence Crackle Paint to the layers for a bit of texture then spritzed on some Shabby Shutters Distress ink spray.
I antiqued all the pieces with Archival ink Coffee and rubbed a little Gathered Twigs Distress ink into the cracks of the crackle paste texture.
I coloured some seam binding with Distress inks Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet to use for my bow. I cut out some leaves and coloured them with Shabby Shutters and Gathered Twigs.
I assembled all of the panels using Foam Squares to give the card a little dimension. I added my seam binding bow and a May Arts Twine bow along with some of the gorgeous new flowers that Linda is carrying in the shop. A little lace and a small sentiment to finish the feminine look.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial . Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions. There's still time to enter our current challenge "HIP TO BE SQUARE", hope to see your there!
Thanks for stopping in! Hugs, Pamellia :)
