Faux Cleaning with Crackle, Lace and More

Hello friends - it has been a while between posts - I have not forgotten you, in fact I have so many projects to share with you but have been busy working on a few publications that are due very soon.  I am excited for the opportunity and look forward to finally be able to share them with you - but it will not be for some time as the magazines work ahead....


Late at night I usually 'hit The Studio' and get some work done while the household sleeps and I normally finish by trying to create a project using the bits and pieces that gather on my desk.  Today's share is a Baby card, or perhaps a child's birthday. I have used some discontinued Spellbinders Dies - and yes, they have sat on my desk for that long!! (head hung in shame! wink:wink!)


I have popped up the Nested Duck (discontinued) onto Standard Circles LG using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L3D Foam Squares there is also a Victorian Medallion One Die cut using Authentique Paper.  Things tend to gather for LONG periods of time as there is always something new to try - I am sure you know what I mean - or is that just me?!  A row of lace has been adhered to the top of the card and Want2Scrap™ pearls have been added.


Buttons are a favourite embellishment - 'shirt' buttons are great, add a white pearl and Kindy Glitz and it is an 'instant' shabby look.  Pleated paper with paper piercing and faux stitching are an extra touch - these have been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner.


Crackle Texture Paste has been added.  I created my own stencil using a cereal packet and a Spellbinders Die - and it works beautifully - in fact I have used this stencil more than one - who doesn't love to recycle!! 

This card is for the following challenges:
Inspiration Destination -  Anything Goes
