Ciao Bella Cozy Moments Shabby Chic birthday card

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  We’re going shabby chic today with Ciao Bella Cozy Moments paper with added distressed edges, pearls, soft pastel colors, ribbon, and spattered paint and my favorite rustic colored rose.  This birthday card features a winning round up of Ciao Bella Cozy Moments paper collection and Scrapiniec Old Fashioned Christmas chipboard  from The Rubber Buggy.   

I built the background of my card with the gorgeous cardstock in the Ciao Bella Cozy Moment paper pack.    Then I dug into my embellishments and went to work on building around the two layered Scrapiniec heart chipboard with pearls, soft bows and a handmade chelub from resin and a mould.

There is a lot of shabby chic creativity to see here so cozy up, join me for the tutorial and see how simple to construct this shabby chic birthday card for your very special person.

Let's get started:  
  • First, slowly take the front and back heart chipboards from the package and use white acrylic paint for the front heart and pink for the back layer and after dried, glue together.
  • Align the heart chipboard to a die cut doily and stamp the sentiment with black ink to a doily.
  • While the glue is drying, cut out a 4" x 6" pattern paper and glue to a 5" x 7" wooden patterned paper from the Ciao Bella Cozy Moment cardstock.  Add 1/8" of black cardstock to each patterned paper and glue together.
  • Using Scor-tape, add a handmade bow with the ribbon across the cardstock lenghtwise. 
  • Using Ranger Distress Oxide Ground Espresso, sponge around the edges of the card.  
  • Glue the frame to the base of your card which measures 5" x 7". 
  • Glue the heart to the center of the card.  Easy peasy!
  • Next, add a white feather and a Wild Orchid Craft two tone rose with glue.
  • I added bronze finger nail polish to 5mm flat back pearls and glue to parts of the heart chipboard.
  • I added a handmade resin cherub painted with white acrylic paint to the card.
  • Add a little Stamperia Arctic Ice paste around the card for that shimmering snow.
