Hey guys, i hope you all are doing great. Today, i have a very interesting project to share with you. Its a vintage shabby chic quilled card with a twisted easel and shaker element to it.

The whole project is made using only four colours i.e. gold, silver, black and white to give it a vintage look.

For the base, i took a 34 cm by 17 cm white cardstock, first scored it in the centre on the long side to make a card that opens upwards & then again scored it diagonally from left side on the upper layer of the base & then took a black & grey pattern paper of size 16 cm by 16 cm which i distressed using tim holtz paper distresser and adhered it only on the left side of the diagonal scored part to form a twisted easel card.

Now, i took a 15 cm by 15 cm white cardstock & distressed it with paper distresser & pasted it to the pattern paper.

After this, i took a 14.5 cm by 14.5 cm black cardstock & adhered golden quilling strips to it in a vertical manner leaving some space between every two strips & again distressed the edges.

I punched out some borders of sizes 14.5 cm in length from black & white cardstock using martha stewart punch. I took half of the black border & white border i.e. 7.25 cm each & adhered it to the top & also at the bottom between the white cardstock & black with gold strips cardstock.
Also added some white lace pieces on the right & left edges for that shabby look.

For the shaker part, i have used spellbinders die frame and i created the lattice pattern inside the frame using silver quilling strips & then added acetate. Also, added gold & silver strips on the four corners of the top frame and then for the shaker element i added sequins & beads in gold, silver & black colour. For the background, i have used white & black pattern paper.

Then, pasted two die cut pieces on the right & bottom side of the black with gold strips cardstock.

With golden, silver, black & white quilling strips, i made some tight coils, scrolls, flowers & leaves & adhered them.

I have also used die cut leaves. Added that shabby white flower on the top right & some white half cut pearls and sequins.

For inside of the card, i first pasted black & white pattern paper & then adhered border punch cut outs from black & grey pattern paper using martha stewart punch & die cut using spellbinders die along with a sentiment in the centre.

Hope you all will like my project..
