Shabby Chic Cards

Hi there, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! 

Today I would like to demonstrate how I made the two card featuring some dies from the latest Romancing the Swirl collection by Spellbinders.

One of the m is a shabby chic framed multi-layered card and the other one is a trifold card that also works as a gift card holder or a money holder. This one is much easier to create but is just as pretty and intricate as the first one.

I like the fact that although the label I used is quite large and covers up nearly the half of a card you can still see that background swirly pattern. That's the power of transparency!

As always, scroll down for some pictures and a video tutorial!
