Moxi Fab World/Shabby and Vintage

Hello everyone.  I have another card to share today.  I made a card for the Shabby and Vintage challenge at Moxi Fab World.  This is my style and what I feel most comfortable doing.  I love all the lace,doilies, satin ribbon, and Seam Binding.  One thing I have been doing lately is making my own stick pins for embellishments on my bows and using 2 different colors of seam binding for the bow as well.

I also stitched on top of the card.  Another sure way of adding to a shabby card.  And I used 2 different Glimmer Mist colors to the doily.  Wheatfields and Gold.  I love how the black stitching looks as a contrast to the bright yellow paper.
Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Kraft
DP: October Afternoon
Vintage image: Off the web
Seam Binding: Memire Mare
Stick Pin: Handmade by me

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you all are enjoying your week so far.

Heather

Very beautiful. I love how this kind of reads as rustic as well with the bright yellow, a nice and fresh take on shabby and vintage. Thanks so much for the recommendations as well! I wish I could repay the favor, but I'm stuck!

What a completely beautiful card! I love the colours you've chosen here - not the usual shabby pastels - and your details are GORGEOUS - the pin and the stitching and the doily! This is a stunning card!

Gorgeous card! Such awesome detail!

Adela said...

That is just so beautifully done! Love your style and all the deets you put into your work. You are truly talented. Love ya!

Shelley Germann said...

Yep! This is the post where my big response disappeared! Fabulous card...even though all your cards are great it's so obvious this is where you are most comfortable! I wish I could borrow some of that mojo! I love vintage in my life...but it's not my card style...why is that? It's too weird! Maybe I have multiple personalities! Anyway, good for you for participating in the Moxie Fab Find your Style challenge! I couldn't commit!

Irena said...

Great color combo.
