Shabby Chic Mercy – by Deb Saaranen

Good morning to all! My blog is working properly again, so I’m one happy camper!!!

I simply adore seeing Deb’s cards done up all shabby and chic and vintage, and we have a lovely one to share today. Deb used stencils with paste, some beautifully vintage papers, variegated silk ribbon and lace. Let’s take a look:

So, so pretty!  Oh, it blesses my heart!

It just takes you back to another place and time, doesn’t it?

The base paper is Spring Farm House by Prima, while the letters you are seeing are stenciled on with paste (love the elevation that gives).

The ribbon used is the 1.25″ Variegated Silk by May Arts.

Deb made her bow on the Original Bow Easy and then scrunched it up with water and let it dry. I love the end result.

And did you catch our prior post about the silk ribbon prices?  If not, you can read it here.

And here’s the lovely inside.

I love the distressed banner and just that bit of lace – what a GREAT way to use up every piece in your stash!

The scripture is from our Mercy stamp set.

You can find Deb’s post on her bog here.
