Hi friends !
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here, how’s it going? Hope you had a pleasant weekend.
The season of love is almost here and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so for today’s post, I’d like to share Two Simple Shabby Chic Cards for Valentine’s Day. The aim was to keep the process simple and use minimal supplies, hence, I did not use any art mediums except a little white gesso (as a lot of people do not have them or do not feel comfortable using Mixed Media Supplies). All I needed were some gorgeous Bob n Betty papers & a few embellishments from my stash. I also wanted to keep the cards neutral and not overly “romantic” so that they could be used as valentine’s gifts for friends or relatives as well, therefore, I chose the sentiments, “with love” & “you are loved”.
Here is a photo collage of the two cards:
Card 1: With Love
Card 2: You Are Loved
Synopsis of the Process:
Both the cards are 6 by 6 inches in size. I started by cutting the papers and distressing the edges. Layers were created with gauze, flowers, chipboards, torn & deckled pieces of paper, diecuts, twine & lace. The chipboards were not colored to help bring a little contrast and maintain the natural look. The flowers were slightly dry brushed with white gesso. To embellish the cards & keep the subtle look, a few gems and opal white liquid pearls were added.
Bob N Betty Supplies Used:
That’s all for today.
Thanks for your precious time.
Have a great week ahead!
Happy Crafting and Stay Blessed.
