Case Study #52, My Lavender Card. It's about time I made a lavender card.
Claire Buswell's sachet card. Pretty!
I poured over Clair Buswell's blog, "Claire's Creations". Wow! She has soooo many cards! All quite lovely and I enjoyed looking at the crafts she made along the way as well. I finally saw one close to my heart. A lavender sachet card. It was so pretty and feminine. I gave it a go.
I still had some medallions left over from my last card for Case Study so I thought long and hard. Her sachet is removable...I made mine as the card. My lavender sachet lies between the card body and the face paper. Showing through a hole on both sides. To accent the front opening I cut a slightly smaller hole in the medallion and used pop tape for depth. Little pearls rim the filigree edge.
I made my face paper. I scanned a light green paper that had a nice pattern, and I change the hue to violet and printed it. I scored the entire piece (the hole's were punched at the start of making the card). I filed down the all ridges and roughed up the paper. I used purple, raspberry and sky blue inks to finish my shabby look. There is a lavender print cutout in the interior of the card and peeks through the opening.
The corsage is made from self dyed snug hug seam ribbon and a tattered sheer ribbon. I frayed all edges too. Flowers are from the racks at Joanns and the pins are from the same floral racks. I pulled them out from the bunch they come in. Finishing up with a little oval computer tag wedged under the pearl button .
Claire's crafts and cards blogspot is fun to visit and get new ideas from. Even her site is nicely put together. Go take a peek yourself, and thanks for the visit to me too!
Our Daily Bread Designs is a new blog I visit. I just feel warm all over when I go there. Maybe it's the music, maybe the cards and the wonderful designers.....still, I like it. They have a current challenge for "Tags". Give them a visit sometime, maybe you'll get that warm feeling too.
