Shabby Chic Wedding Card

Someone on Docrafts was asking about shabby chic wedding cards the other day and it reminded me that I still had this card to share with you.

"Wishing you a special happiness..."

That big brown lace is just perfect for a vintage shabby chic look. The diecuts and embossed panels are all distressed using Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks, and some flowers added to the window box. If you know the bride's colour scheme, you can change the flower and lace colours to match.


I always like to make a matching box for these window box cards. For this box, I heat-embossed some stamps in gold. If you decorate a box like this, you need to do it before you assemble and glue the box together, and make sure you stamp the larger of the two box pieces (ask me how I know!).

Entered for the following challenge:
Stamplorations - Stamps and Flowers
Emerald Faeries - Flowers, Ribbon &/or Lace
A Little Bit Crafty - Flowers
