Card Style Week: Shabby & Vintage

Next up in Moxie Fab World’s Card Style Week Celebration: Shabby & Vintage! My personal style is usually in the “Fun & Cute” and “Clean & Graphic” categories, but from time to time, I’ve made cards in a more vintage style.

To celebrate the release of Paper Crafts’ special issue, Card Style, Moxie Fab World is hosting contests this week in each of the four styles featured in the magazine. Each contest runs until August 2 at midnight MDT. For more information, click HERE to visit Moxie Fab World!

Moxie Fab World’s Cath explains what defines the Shabby & Vintage style:

What makes a card shabby chic? Well, shabby chic is a style characterized by layering. It is soft, utilizing ribbon, lace, and techniques such as inking and distressing. The final product looks comfortable, weathered, and worn.

What makes a card vintage? Vintage goes a step further by adding old images, found items, and antique trinkets to the mix.

With those guidelines in mind, I created this card for the “Card Style Shabby Chic and Vintage Challenge in the Moxie Fab World”:

The card base is Bazzill cardstock embossed with a Tim Holtz folder in the Big Shot. I used paper by The Girls’ Paperie and the rose, photo corner, journaling spot and butterfly from an ephemera pack by K & Company. The ticket is by Tim Holtz.
The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up’s “Occasional Quotes”, which is one of the new hostess sets! I also added adhesive pearls by Prima, a scrap of lace, and a button to complete the card. I distressed the paper square and a few of the pieces on the card with the edge of my scissors.
Thanks very much for looking at my card…I hope you’ll also play along with Moxie Fab World’s challenges this week!
