As I look at today’s card for Sketcchtember Day 11 I feel it’s a bit shabby chic. I didn’t start out aiming for this but the sheet I chose from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper set the tone for it. Do you find the creative process taking you somewhere completely different to where you had planned? Isn’t that the fun of creating!

With a colour palette of Blushing Bride, Gray Granite and White this card has a soft look to it. I layered the vellum detailed wreath on a full wreath to make the script more visible. The wreath underweath was distressed on the edges with Gray Granite using a sponge dauber and I cut off any excess that was protruding in the centre from under the Vellum.

Some Blushing Bride leaves were stamped and die cut and interwoven with smaller silver leaves.

I added 2 small bits of ribbon with glue dots under the sprigs to give the effect of a bow. This gave it less bulk than having the knot of the bow in there (I did try it!). To top off my little foliage arrangement I added a cute bow which is part of the Country Wreath Dies.

The Cottage Wreath bundle is one of the bundle we’ll be using in our FREE VIRTUAL EVENT for World Cardmaking Day. See all the details below.
