More Shabby Chic

I loved working with my new products so much the other day, particularly the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper, that I had to make another 'Shabby Chic' card. Going through my stamp sets, I realized that there are quite a few that work well with it, and today I am using the Charming Stamp Set. The flower image fit so perfectly into the embossed Designer Frames.

The flower and background image was stamped on a separate piece of Naturals Ivory Cardstock (1 3/8" x 2") and adhered to the frame, giving the illustion of it all being one piece. A butterfly was stamped onto a Mini Vintage Tag, and tucked under a piece of scrunched Very Vanilla Seam Binding. The ribbon was scrunched by locating a thread toward the center of the edge, and just pulling it to gather. So easy! Pretty much everything was sponged in Soft Suede Ink to give it an aged look.
