Shabby Chic "If You Don't Believe in Miracles" corrugated card

Hello!  Kathy Jo here to share a shabby card using the gorgeous new set from Quietfire Design, If You Don't Believe in Miracles.  It is such a beautiful set and it is also cling mount!  Yay!  Gotta love the cling!
As soon as I saw this stamp I pictured wings on either side of it.  I used the Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder from the set Flourish and Wings.  Stickles was applied to the embossed areas.  While it dried I applied Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Picket Fence to a corrugated card (Recollections).  Next Versmark was randomly applied to the corrugation and then Stampendous' Shabby Pink embossing enamel was lightly sprinkled.  It was a light sprinkling because the embossing is heated from the underside of the medium- if heated above, the glitter in the enamel blows everywhere!  Heating through corrugation is also tricky so it is best to go thin.
I cut a piece of Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary, distressed the edges and used scrapbooking glue to adhere to the front.  Vellum paper was torn and applied to the middle of the G45 paper.  By now the feathers were dry so I fussy them and adhered white feathers to them.  Memento's Rich Cocoa was used to stamp the wonderful stamp If You Don't Believe in Miracles.  Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die cut the sentiment and while the paper was still in the die, Tim Holtz' Victorian Velvet ink was added as shown.  
The wings and die cut sentiment were foam taped to the card.  Victorian Velvet stain was used on some old lace and then flower ribbon was adhered.  In each lacy flower is a large gem.
I hope you enjoyed the shabby card using the fabulous new If You Don't Believe in Miracles stamp!  It comes in a set of three cling stamps...aren't they great?

    1. Thanks, Mary Lou! It was hard to use the rose ribbon (have had it for awhile in it's package) but I was happy to finally use it for this card. Feels good to finally use hoarded items! :)

  3. Wonderful Kathy Jo, I love the play between your various elements!

  4. Wow. I thought the lace, below the flowers, was simply cut from the paper in the background. You did a very good job of matching the color.

  5. What a fantastic card! LOVE the wings! TFS!
