Vintage Shabby Chic Card by Cathi O'Neill

Hi! Couture Creations Designer Cathi O'Neill here today! I'm sharing a card that I created with some gorgeous glimmer cardstock and some NEW embossing folders and dies released by Couture Creations.

To start my card I used a base of green glimmer cardstock and embossed it with the beautiful Asian Wave Embossing Folder.

Next, I layered on top of my card a piece of cardstock cut with the beautiful Madeline Les Fleurs Die. To the center of the die-cut I added a beautiful vintage image of a woman.

I add some yummy keys from the Madeline Keys to My Heart Die.

I antiqued my card by adding gesso. It highlighted the raised edges of the embossed pattern, and when I coated the edges and random spots on the doily and key die-cuts, it added a really antiqued peeling whitewash paint effect to card. I just love how effective it looks!

To finish the card I added a vintage seam binding double bow on the keys and some Moonlight Self Adhesive Pearls on the doily. Simply done, but a very textured and elegant effect.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
