Shabby chic birthday card

Hello there! How are you doing? Things are sloooooowly starting to go to the "new normal" here; things are about to reopen etc. But there are still many safety measures in place.

I made this card for my grandma's birthday. I was thinking hard which stamp to use on the card, but atthe end I decide to make a shabby chic card without the cute images. And this is the result.

The gorgeous papers I used for this card are from Lemoncraft. Between most of the layers I used a doubble sided sticky foam to create a bit of a 3D look and give the card a bit more dimension. 

I distressed the edges of the papers and used some white gesso here and there. Between the layers I "tucked" a white paper doily.  I fussy cut the flowers from one of the sheets that came with the paper pad and layered them using the double sided adhesive foam. I printed the sentiment (it's in Slovenian and it means "happy birthday") and added it on the card. To complete the look I was going for I stamped some butterflies on the watercolour paper, coloured them with TH distress inks, fussy cut them and then glued them on the card. I finished the card by embellishing it with some lace and pearls.

Have a beautiful day! xx
