Shabby Chic Wallet Style Card

Hey browsers; welcome to my blog ...

Today I share another shabby chic card; this time in a wallet style.  I love this card because I used beautiful off white mulberry paper.  I love working with mulberry paper and it is so easy to tear and leaves that great tattered edge that is so appealing when creating shabby chic style.

As you can see simple yet elegant.  Mulberry paper torn to fit cardstock panels and layered lace with lace flowers, roses and pearls

A pearl centre in a paper rose layered on a vintage lace flower.  A stick pin embellishes the artificial rose beautifully.

The cardstock is cut into a V shape and inserts into a slit in the mulberry paper and this of course, is the closure of the wallet.  A creme bow discreetly covers the slit in paper. 

The brown rosette trim is by WOC and so is the binding I used for the bow. 

The inside of the card!   Easy to insert a note or gift card etc.

A Petaloo mulberry flower and a bow tied with pale material.  I used the doily punch by Martha Stewart on the outside of the card.

As you can see the back of the card is just as simple - plain and elegant.  My father always said that simplicity is the essence of good taste!

So there you have it; try one for yourself.  Julianna has a tutorial on how to make this card - she is awesome people!  Her talent is amazing and one cannot help but be inspired by her!
