Shabby Chic Tea Cup Birthday Card

Hi, guys! Today I am sharing a birthday card that was commissioned by a friend for her to give to her husband's aunt.  After thinking about it a bit, I decided to use one of my favorite teacup stamps by Unity Stamps.  It is a large stamp, so I made a large card.  I heat embossed the teacup with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  I used various antique color Distress Inks to apply color to the image.

Stamps: Unity Stamps
Paper: Gina K Designs, Watercolor paper, Paper Doily
Inks: Distress Inks, Versamark Ink, Distress Stains
Misc.:  Pearls, Seam Binding, Oval Punches, Computer Generated Name

I was going for a shabby chic/antique look for this card.  I added a doily that I applied Distress Inks to, and added pearls as well.  The ribbon is seam binding that is colored with Distress Stains and crumpled and dried to give it that aged look.

I am submitting this card for the Chic to be Shabby challenge over at:
Do you have a creation that is Chic to be Shabby?  If so, why not submit yours too and join in the fun!

Hope you have a great day!  Until next time!

A gorgeous shabby chic card Winnie, love the Kraft background as it really sets the cup and saucer off and the doily is a lovely finishing touch. Anne x
