Hello, Creative Embellishments fans!
Today I’m sharing a couple of shabby chic-inspired DL sized birthday cards with you.
Just a few chippy pieces and pretty papers is all you need.


I started with my card bases and then chose some pretty papers to pull my compositor together. My papers and mediums are all by 13 Arts.


Here is card #1 which always seems to take longer than card #2 because I spend my planning time up front.


For this card, I’ve used one of the  Ornate Portrait Frame 2 which is painted white as well as both the Moroccan Lattice Panel and the Pussy Willow which are inked and cut into pieces for random tucking here and there.


Here is a better view of the Ornate Frame. I’ve also used some metallic wax randomly on a couple of the chippy pieces.


And here is the second card which is sort of a reverse mirror image using different elements.


The CE Clock Faces are one of my all-time favorites in the store. It comes in several sizes and I try to always keep some in my scrappy stash.
This is painted white and has metallic accents.


Again I’ve used another piece of the Moroccan Panel for an extra layer.
I finished with some florals and die cut along with a few paint splatters.
