A shabby chic wedding card...

Before I share today's project, I wanted to share a couple photos with you.  At our Stamporee last month, we made and collected cards for the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock.  We also had some donations of laundry detergent along with some cash donations.  We had also had a silent auction item donated by Pam Crane and purchased by Sue Warrington, so those proceeds also went there.  I was in Little Rock on Saturday for a Girl Scout board meeting and ran over with a friend afterwards.  They gave us a tour of the facilities and they have a new building under construction next door.  It will be BEAUTIFUL!!

Here we are with our donations.  Patricia Robertson is on the board with me so I dragged her along to help carry.  

Here's the card rack they have for guests in the library. We're not the only ones making cards.  
Today's wedding card is in the shabby chic style.  This was definitely a favorite during the class.  The colors are Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  I used the Woodgrain embossing folder for some texture, the cut the Vanilla piece with the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, then added some flowers made using the new Blossom Bunch Punch.  A couple leaves from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies finish the look.

Three types of ribbon help give it the shabby chic look: 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Gold Metallic Baker's Twine and Venetian Crochet Trim.  Lots of little Pearls add a nice touch as well.  The flowers are held together with Mini Brads, but for the class, we used Gold Mini Brads to go with the Gold Baker's Twine.
