TRR Challenge #39 Shabby Naturals

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog!
 It's Fran's turn to host this week and she has chosen this beautiful inspiration photo .....

and ask that you create a card / project using the COLOURS in the photo
plus RIBBON / TWINE / BURLAP and make it SHABBY!

Here is my card....

This was such a fab challenge from Fran, I loved the photo inspiration and the requirements for the challenge.  I immediately thought, kraft, white and ink!  Then I knew it had to be a Christmas card.  This is my first Christmas card of the year, with many more to make in the next few weeks.  I decided to add a few 'shabby' elements, including paper doilies, lots of white ink and crinkled seam binding.

I based my card on to some musical note paper from Echo Park and then stamped the kraft cardstock with a script stamp in white ink.  I had an old paper doily which was a little torn but kept it, just in case I could use it, and added half to each side of my card.  I used the same musical note paper as the base of my label and inked up a WMS Seasonal Remedies stamp in white ink.  I added a few pieces of ivory woven burlap which were little pieces of off cuts which I distressed and pulled apart slightly to make wider.  The mushroom seam binding was sprayed with Glimmer Mist, scrunched and left to dry on the heater before adding a loose bow.  Then I added these beautiful white glitter chipboard stars to add a more Christmas feel.

The kraft tag was put together in a similar way to the card using a different Seasonal Remedies stamp.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the beautiful shabby cards from the rest of the Design Team - they are gorgeous!
