Pink and brown papers, peony ribbons and polka dots?  Yes, please!  This 5″ x 7″ top fold card features papers from Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Collection.

Prize Winning Peonies….

This bodacious bow cluster started with a triple loop bow tied with Peony Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  Then I topped it off with a Crosshatch on 3/8″ Satin double loop bow and a pretty posy. This combo really amps up the shabby chic vibe .

Shabby Chic Birthday Blessings Card: I Get By with a Little Help From My Friends

Just like the old Beatles tune, “I get by with a little help from my friends,” I tie bows with a little help from my friend!  Studying Bonnie Garby’s YouTube video tutorials and using my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool are the secrets to my bow tying success.  I know there are lots of different ways to tie fabulous bows, and some of you are so smart you don’t need to use a tool.  I, however, was a bow-tying flunk out, and these two secret weapons really changed up my game.


Shabby Chic Birthday Blessings Card: A Peek Inside

I love finishing the inside of a card as much as I love designing the cover.  Here, I’ve layered up papers, paper scraps, a vellum sentiment panel and some washi tape.  A little message is tucked into the tiny envelope….just for fun!

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

    OMG.. the mix of colors and papers is just gorgeous! I love shabby chic and this card definitely hits that right on the spot… who would think of putting the pinks and browns with the pop of that yellow flowered paper? but it looks so vintage! The inside is just darling too….your creations are so fun to look at and I want to CASE every one!
