Shabby Vintage

I saw a quilted card on the internet some time ago and have been wanting to make something similar. So here it is.

Sewing done directly onto the card .......

A lace flower, handmade, and a rolled fabric flower also handmade with a couple of shop bought ribbon roses.

A pin with beads on and a sentiment, computer generated.


A couple of other quick cards made using the Tilda Gardenparty paper pad. Just love those vibrant designs.




I have some birthdays coming up and need some 'flat' cards to get in the post and this one is embellishment free and very flat.

This last card I am entering into Ali's Vintage Page Designs Birds challenge.

Hello Brenda
Your Quilted card is just brilliant,
what gives the card the WoW factor is your adorable Lace flower,adding the Tape measure and the little bit of stitching lifts the card to another level, I just love it.
Like your other cards too.
