    I created this card using the Shabby Chalet kit:

    card_zps103e21c6.jpg

    And here is how it came together.

    0_zps7fb8647c.jpg
    For my first layer I cut a piece of PP at 5.2 x 8.1

    1_zpsa9f1c0a0.jpg
    I layed a piece of tulle over my card, like this.

    2_zps593626ef.jpg
    And cut it, holding it in place, and deciding how it should look, as I was cutting along.

    3_zpsbd672445.jpg
    It came out like this. The left over pieces on the right………

    4_zps2e581bb2.jpg
    I cut that piece in half and…..

    5_zps014c9947.jpg
    started to ruffle it up

    6_zps22c623dc.jpg
    Then I wrapped a wire around it, and afterwards I clipped off the ends.

    7_zpsae6921a9.jpg
    I cut a strip of PP at 1.5 x 6.5

    8_zpsc926e30b.jpg
    spritzed both front and backside with water and let it sit for a moment.

    9_zpsc14f9849.jpg
    Then I started to ruffle or crumble it up like in the picture. I had to do this carefully, cause the paper easily rips when it is wet.

    10_zps22ac427c.jpg
    And whilst heat setting my ruffles I pinched the middle.

    11_zpscf86a248.jpg
    I distressed the edges of my frist paper layer, glued my tulle on (using Fabri-Tac) and I hot glued my ruffled paper strip on. I only put glue in the middle of the paper strip cause I wanted to be able to tuck things in.

    12_zpsc0ff3404.jpg
    I cut out one of the doilies that was on the prima flower packaging and place it like this.

    14_zpsd07f72e8.jpg
    Then I pulled apart one of the prima flowers (that came in the kit)….

    15_zpsbd0b07a6.jpg
    And made some smaller buds out of them. Simply by pinching 1 of the circles together and wrapping some wire around the buds

    16_zps7402f4ed.jpg
    I thought they looked cute!

    17_zps5dec877b.jpg
    Then I started layering. First 1 of the circles (from the pulled apart flower) and then on top the ruffled tulle, I made earlier.

    18_zpsd95cadfd.jpg
    From a previous kit: I had some of that wooden fence left over, so I cut off 1 part and glued it down like in the picture. On top I glued a little piece of the pearl spray that came in the Jan kit. The little blue flower, was the center flower from the flower I took apart. (do I still make sense?)

    19_zps93a446a4.jpg
    Then I cut a few different sizes from the beaded sprays. I twisted 2 togeter….

    20_zps37959b72.jpg
    And glued them, hanging beneath my ruffled paper strip.

    21_zps2719f34f.jpg
    I glued the little flower buds in place

    22_zps6ae4a9c9.jpg
    And the other beaded spray, that were cut in different sizes.

    23_zps4102fccf.jpg
    I added some Stickles, in diamond, to the flowers on the paper

    24_zps712c7486.jpg
    And some glossy accents on the buds that are printed on the paper.

    25_zpsf791aa37.jpg
    Then I painted a clock icon with white acrylic paint

    26_zps601bbe92.jpg
    And glued it down, looking like it hangs on that piece of fence. Like a rod.

    27_zps2ef3feee.jpg
    I added a little lace bow and a tiny baby rose.

    28_zpsebf3cf40.jpg
    Then I randomly added some gesso

    29_zps881af9ad.jpg
    I cut a white mat (3/4) like in the picture and glued it to the back.

    30_zpsac091fc4.jpg
    For the base of my card I cut a piece of cardstock at 9 x 12, folded it double, distressed the edges and added some gesso here and there.

    31_zps290f673b.jpg
    Then I glued everything together.

    and called it done! Hope you like it.

      Oh just fabulous Paulien! I love the way you have created the flower spray using the flowers and the tulle. Just all stunning. I did smile too at the state of your scissors – mine are like that!

      #229912

      Thanks ladies. Jennie…. LOL… yeah, they are pretty USED!!! I'm sorry though. I haven't pay attention to it. I suppose to use clean tools for a tutorial, don't you think?!!!

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          No way- You don't have to do that. Your scissors are USED, and that's a great thing!

                  Paulien, I can't tell you how much I love your tutorials. I copy and paste them into a Word document to keep them on my computer. Thank you!

                        Of all the wonderful cards that you've made for us, this is one of my all-time favorites!!! I love the sweet, delicate look that you've given it and even more, I love the techniques that you've used on all of the bits and pieces of flowers and scraps!!!!!
