Shabby Chic Flower Card

Shabby chic – soft and opulent with signs of age. That’s what I think of when I look at this card I made for Mommy.

Layer paper, fabric, cheese cloth, and tissue paper. Sew a button in the middle of the stacked layers then spray with heavy-duty spray starch till soaking wet.  Scrunch and shape then let the flower dry. The drying takes a few days because of all the layers. Then attach to a card front with Glubers.

Raid your fabric and ribbon stash and have fun creating one.
