DO YOU LIKE SHABBY CHIC? It has been quite a while since I created 'Shabby Chic' cards! It was so fun to get back into it! I don't do them for myself, except maybe to hint at shabby chic here and there, But love the fun of creating a real Shabby Chic card. This class comes up at the beginning of March at Scrapbook Essentials, BC.

Excited to once again dabble in some Shabby Chic cards with you. If you are new to this style, you are free to join us and learn some great techniques that will make any card a step up, or you might just fall in love with Shabby Chic. We will be paper piercing so that we can straight stitch (a backhand technique), and cross stitch. We get to pull apart some light and airy cheese cloth, rip and tear paper instead of using the paper trimmer on everything, use lots of layers, arrange doilies, flowers and leaves, paint with some gesso, and so much more. Creating Shabby Chic always means that your cards will not fit into a regular envelope, so be sure to sign up for the Envelope Punch Board Classes and learn how to make an envelope box for these kinds of cards on February 18th and March 4th.Please bring to class the following: Paper trimmer, scissors, white 3D Foam Squares (pop dots), embroidery needle, paper piercer & piercing pad, paper distressing tool (not sand paper, takes too long to get the right result) 3/8" to 1/2" brush (for the gesso), adhesive tape (like Sookwang Score Tape), liquid glue (a quick drying glue), Star Dust Stickles (or something similar), silicone/nonstick craft mat, wipes (we will get a little messy, just like little girls...bring and apron if you wish)
I will be posting the cards individually at a later date so that you can see them a little closer.
See you in class!
