Hello Friend


Hi there fellow bloggers, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today I am sharing with you a card made with the most amazing 12x12 paper pad called Bloom Beautiful from Craft Consortium. When I first saw this pad I just ooh'd and ahh'd at every sheet and I am continuing to drool over this paper pad every time I open it. Please check it out HERE.


I started off by die cutting my Birdcage in Chipboard and adding some DecoArt Crackle paint. Whilst still wet I sprinkled a little Distress powder in Milled Lavender and dried it with my heat gun so the paint would bubble a bit more for texture. Finishing off with a little gilding wax and fussy cut birds from the paper pad.


I sprayed my paper with a little water on the reverse side and gathered in to look like a curtain, drying in place with my heatgun. I added 2 rows of stitching, a handmade Rose along with a stamped sentiment and a ribbon to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  7. Beautiful beautiful beautiful Julie. My fav part is the drapes. I just learned a few days ago that you can wet paper and make it do things like that but... not all paper is high enough quality!! Says alot for this Craft Consortium paper. Just love this. j.

  18. Oh wow! How beautiful is this! The paper scrunched up to give a peek of the layer beneath is a fabulous idea!!! Love that the stitching keeps it in place. So so pretty!
