The Shabby Tea Room #90 - Winter Picnic
Well it's time for another fabbo challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. This week I am truly honored to be submitting a card as a guest designer. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing! Have you seen some of the amazing things those ladies come up with? Wow! So while I shake my head in wonderment you can check my humble submission below. The inspiration photo for this challenge is above. The crew is looking for creations with
White or Cream, Silver and Glitter
And here's mine...
The base is simple white card stock. I then cut a slightly smaller layer and paper punched the edges with an eyelet punch. I then lightly covered the eyelet ends with glitter glue and poured on the crystal coarse glitter glue. After letting it set, I shook off the excess and added it to the base with dimensional foam. The next layer is a shiny piece of silver card stock. I added a ribbon trim along the bottom that has silver and crystal hanging beads. The final base layer is a 5 x 5 piece of white card stock. I attached woven bias tape, securing it on the back with simple scotch tape. I bought a package of the Wright's Bias Tape Single Fold for this project. After placing it with dimensional foam I pulled out my dies. The silver base for the sentiment is from Spellbinders Holly Motifs. I stamped the sentiment in black and cut it with Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. The white rose is a cut from Cricut Flower Shoppe. I added a pearl in the center and a few paper punched branches (white) and silver leaves (Spellbinders Foliage). The stick pin is one I made with a pearl topped pin and some beads I had on hand. This lovely sentiment is from an upcoming release at Our Daily Bread Designs called aptly, Simple Things. It will be available on December 1st! Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
