C85 Shabby Rose Collection 
Shabby Rose Card – by Jeanine de Bruyn

Requirements – 1 sheet of Fresh Vintage C85 005
                              White cardstock
                              Turquoise cardstock
                              Lace, small rose, flat back pearls, gauze
                              1 small doiley

Directions – from the Fresh Vintage paper cut a piece measuring 13.5x9.5cm.
From your white cardstock cut a piece measuring 21 x 15cm. Fold it in half so it will now be 10.5 x 15cm to form the base of your card. Chalk the edges of both of the pieces you just cut. Cut another piece from the Fresh Vintage paper measuring 13.5x2cm and scallop one of the edges.

Glue the 13.5 x 9.5cm Fresh Vintage piece to the card, leaving an even border.
Add a piece of lace to the centre of the card and then glue your 13.5x2cm scalloped piece to centre of the lace. Glue your small doiley to the middle of your card.

Make a lollipop flower from the remaining Fresh Vintage paper and the turquoise cardstock, I made mine by tracing different size circles then cutting them out, cutting a slit in each circle and then glue them together to give each circle a slight cone shape. 

Glue your circles on top of each other starting with the largest circle and working your way to the smallest one. I added pieces of gauze between each layer to give it that shabby look. Add a small rose to the centre of the flower. Make some leaves from the remaining paper and glue them to your flower. I went over my flower with a little bit of white paint.

Glue the lollipop flower to the centre of the doiley.

To complete your card add some flat back pearls to the leaves of the flower and to the edges of the scalloped piece.

Happy crafting everyone!
