A Shabby Chic Birthday Card + Assemble This! Sketch no. 5

Hello Friends…

#sketch #layout #inspiration #cardmaking #cardmaker #cards #dahlhousedesigns #assemblethissketch

I’m back again sharing a project for Unity Stamp Company. Today’s card is based on the Assemble This! Sketch No. 5. Where we have a spray of images going from the top left and down to the bottom right. It can be anything you’d like it to be, but I decided to go with a floral design.

I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how this card was made. You can watch it below or on YouTube.

The Project

The Details

These flowers are classic… timeless… necessary! So absolutely stunning and beautiful. I could use them over and over again. Um, maybe I do. Haha. I really love how pretty they are and you can adjust the colors to any project.

Today, I’m using that amazing barn wall background stamp for a shabby chic look. Think Shiplap ah la Joanna Graines and then popping up some gorgeous yellow flowers. I’m a watercoloring fool with a bit of string and a popped up sentment and I’m callin’ this card done.

The Steps

Here are the steps to recreate this card:

  1. Start with a standard size A2 card (4.25″ x 5.5″) card. 
  2. Stamp barn wall background using a dark brown ink onto kraft cardstock. Blend on some Distress ink to give it a variation of color like wood. Adhere to card front.
  3. Tie string around card front.
  4. Stamp flowers onto Canson XL watercolor paper with dark brown ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Watercolor with Distress Inks and let dry completely.
  5. Fussy cut flowers out and pop up on card front the foam adhesive.
  6. Stamp sentiment on strip of kraft paper and pop on card front.
  7. Add Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to card.
