meanwhile, i decided to go with "posh" as my inspirational spice girl, and here's my card:
ok, yes, even for me, this has A LOT OF STUFF and it's all top-drawer! a friend of mine who designs custom window treatments recently shared a bunch of older/surplus swatches with me, so i now have an utterly luscious little hoard of luxury fabrics AND some neat wood and bamboo samples, like the one i've used here. since it's a bit heavier than the typical card fodder, i fused my vintage paper background to some lightweight chipboard, and used the sewing machine to attach the fussy-cut chiffon fabric and the pearl applique to the bamboo panel, and then again to secure the bamboo panel to the background. it was definitely a bit slow-going (i had to manually advance the machine to span all of those wider wooden slats) but i feel like everything is on there quite securely and there's definitely enough texture and interest... even for ME, lol!
plus i think you'll agree: it's pretty darned POSH, right?!
be sure to check out the rest of the spicy goodness from my design team darlings over at shopping our stash! ♥
