Rose Quartz Shabby Chic Card

Hello everyone,

Today I have some inspiration to share using the rose quartz collection from Prima. I personally really like this paper collection from prima the papers have beautiful patterns and I absolutely love the colour palette of pink, black and grey. The papers are great for making scrapbook and mix media layouts,  I have made a shabby chic card which looks very  “mix media like” and covered everything in tons of glitter.




The total card measures 6″ by 6″. I have ripped and torn the edges of my pattern papers and inked them black archival and layered them on my card base. I used the old script stamp from mudra and stamped the pattern papers randomly.

I have used a combination of my handmade flowers and prima flowers from the rose quartz collection, I have covered the flowers with crystal clear glitter and added the frosting powder on the edges. I have fussy cut the feathers from a pattern paper from the same paper pad and added crystal clear glitter on them from papericious. I stamped and fussy cut some tiny flowers from the botanical blooms stamp set from mudra and stuck them to fill any gaps. The small resin frame was primed with white gesso and highlighted very lightly with prima art alchemy wax in white gold. Lastly, I added some spritz of white gesso.

Other materials used are: fake white grass, white fabric lace, die cut leaves, wire pollens, foam tape, black archival ink pad.




Hope you liked my creation, Thank You for stopping by!

DIY Wallet card (Tutorial)

Hi, everyone!

Today I have a simple and easy card tutorial. This is a very cute and fun to make card, I have made a step by step post with a lot of pictures especially for scrapbooking beginners and non-crafters using basic and affordable craft supplies.

 

Supplies used:

  •  Scoreboard
  • Eno greetings Romantic paper pack
  • Double-sided adhesive tape
  • Clear acetate / OHP sheet
  • Magnets
  • Smooth white cardstock

The measurements given below are according to the scoreboard for scoring,( if you don’t have a scoreboard then use a ruler and score with a small round ball embossing stylus or with the point of your scissor or even a pen with empty refill will work and convert the measurements into centimetres)

  • First, take cut a piece of cardstock 7 ” long and 8  7/8” wide for your card base and score at 4” and 4 3/4”. For the strap take another piece of cardstock 1” long and 2 3/4” wide and score at 1” and 1 3/4”.

 

  • Now for the large pockets  cut two pieces of cardstock 7 1/2” wide and 4” long and keeping it horizontally score at 3/8”, 1/2”, 7 1/8” and  7 1/4” now keep it vertically and score at 3 1/2” and 3 5/8” and sniff the corners like I have in the picture below .




  • Before covering everything with pattern paper place the magnets and stick them on the base and the strap, now stick the pattern paper on both sides of the strap and the stick one end of the strap on the backside.
  •  Cover the base and the pockets with pattern papers that is 1/8” smaller than the cardstock base on all sides and score again.

 

  • I have made three sets of small pockets and stuck one vertically and two horizontally on the other side.
  • The vertical pocket is slightly bigger than the other two, to make this pocket cut a piece of pattern paper 11” long and 3” wide and score at  3 1/2”, 5  7/8”, 8  1/4”, 9  5/8”.
  • For the horizontal pockets cut two pieces of pattern paper measuring 10 1/2” long and 3” wide and score at 3 1/8”, 5 1/2”, 7 7/8”, 9 1/2”.

 

  • Make the hinges and stick them as shown in the picture below.

  • I made some tags to insert in the pockets and a small photo frame. The total size of the frame is 2 1/2” long and 3 1/4” wide with the frame size of 3/8” and stick a piece of clear OHP sheet inside, attach the hinges on three sides keeping one side open to insert the picture.
  • I also added some clear glitter on the borders of my tags.

  • This is what the card looks like after adhering everything. First, I adhered the large pockets on the card base and then adhered the small pockets on them.
  • I finished the card by drawing the stitches on the borders, I drew the stitches with a white gel pen.. easy isn’t it?




The finished card looks like this. I have kept the decoration very clean and simple, you can decorate it however you like, I have decorated it with some foam and fabric flowers, fabric lace doily and some pearls.

You can add more tags, pictures, personal note, money, gift vouchers etc inside the large pockets.

 

I hope I  was clear in explaining everything, if you have any questions leave them in the comments section down below.

I hope you like it and give it a try, Thank you for visiting!
