The Shabby Tea Room has a vintage white challenge. Taking inspiration from this photo, I created this easel card
I see soft, rustic whites, rich textures and light, billowing curtains . . . And I tried to incorporate that into this creation.
The card base is a square of wall paper which I've stitched onto the card. It has been simply embellished with a strip of stitched on ribbon and lace. The main focal point is a handmade ribbon flower, and a frame for added interest.
A close-up view of the flower. I have made this from gathered lace & ribbons and finished with a rolled ribbon rose & stamens. The leaves are cut from lace fabric.
The frame is made from two layers of chipboard which are cut with SB nesties. It is embossed, painted white, then topped with rock candy crackle paint. The inset picture is a vintage print.
The inside of the card. I recreated the notion of the mantelpiece with the frame over the base border. Again, the border is wallpaper with ribbon & lace. The "wall" is embossed using a papermania folder.
The frame is white chipboard coated with crackle paint. The space within the frame is lightly stamped with a Viva Decor medallion stamp, and is meant for the sentiment.
