Spring Card by Katya Ivanova
- We will need:
- craft paper
- scrap paper
- twine, string
- flower soft
We will start by getting ready a card base and also base mats and mats for inside of the card.
Emboss the craft paper using brick wall embossing folder.
Distress all the papers using Vintage Photo distress ink.
Then cut out a strip of paper. I used burlap print paper to go with the overall eco style. And rip the edges of the paper.
Layer scrap paper, followed by burlap and lace onto the craft paper base. Stitch all the elements on using red threads to add a bit of colour. The strip of burlap is recycled from a shopping bag. I am sure you all use Tesco bags for life. Well after mine ripped I decided to cut it up and use the bits of burlap.
Using raffia, string, flowers and shabby seam binding make a little bunch of flowers.
Make a sentiment using a stamp and cut it out.
Then I took a flower and cut it in half. I tucked it under the papers and fixed in place using nail- imitation brads.
And a final touch add some flower soft.
We have Katya here on the blog today to show us a gorgeous fun Christmas inspired tag.
What you will need:
- We will need
- coloured cardstock
- coordinating scrap papers
- tag (chipboard or die cut)
- lace and ribbons
- stamp sentiment
Cut out the base of the cards and two pieces of coordinating scrap paper according to measurements.
Distress all papers using Vintage Photo distress ink.
Add some cotton lace and pom pom ribbon and stitch around the card.
Glue the chipboard tag using foam tape to give it more dimension. I have also bent back one corner and put a snowflake brad through it. Add a sentiment stamp, alternatively you can use heat embossing.
Make a double bow using shabby seam binding and twine, attach to the card using a brad.
I have decorated the chipboard tag with some washi tape. Using hot glue gun I have glued a poinsettia and pine cones. Then I sewed on some buttons and added pearls. As a finishing touch- go over some embellishments with white acrylic paint to make an imitation of snow.
