    For the base of my card I folded a piece of cardstock and cut it down to 6.1/8 x 4.1/8 My fold is at the top of my card.

    1m_zps288d8bb1.jpg
    From this notecard I cut 1/8 of an inch off, from the top.

    2m_zps5944c52b.jpg
    Then I cut a rectangle at 3 x 4

    3m_zps74db8aea.jpg
    Tore it from the right bottom up the left, like in this picture

    4m_zps587b4a71.jpg
    I glued the bigger piece like in the picture. added glue, only 1/4 of an inch, to the top.

    5mo_zpsdc16cf0e.jpg
    Then the other half of the teared piece, I flipped it over and slided it under the bigger piece……

    6m_zps4841fc0e.jpg
    To create 2 layers. Glued them in place.

    7m_zpsbc468a71.jpg
    I distressed and inked all the edges and adhered the notecard to my base-card.

    8m_zps83912fdf.jpg
    Then I cut this little piece 2.1/4 x 2

    9mo_zpse97cb05b.jpg
    Distressed and inked the edges, and glued a piece of cardboard to the back to let it stand out from the card. Glued it to the card. On top I glued a bow embellishment that came in the Main Kit.

    10m_zpscb6d0d02.jpg
    I stamped my sentiment with Archival ink. Using a spatula I randomly blobbed on some
    Ranger Glue 'N Seal (glossy accents or mod podge will be just as good)

    11m_zps1da49a39.jpg
    Then I sprinkled the tiny bead that came in the Main Kit. Put a piece of scrap-paper over it and pressed it into the glue. Then shake off the excess and let it dry for a few minutes.

    12m_zpsdb04b64f.jpg
    To finish it off, I added some diamond stickles onto the card to balance it out.

    13cardmo_zps2ff3b46e.jpg
    That's it…. 15 minutes!

    For my base card I folded a piece of cardtock double and trimmed it down to 4.3/8 x 6.3/8 My fold is on the left side.

    1m_zps6809f030.jpg
    From this notecard, I cut the oval out, distressed the inner edges and I cut 1/8 of an inch off, from all 4 sides.

    2mo_zpsdaa29a68.jpg
    Then I traced the oval shape to this piece of PP, and cut it a little smaller then the note card.

    3m_zps793476ef.jpg
    And glued them together.

    4m_zps16403469.jpg
    Then I took this notecard and used the back of it, as a mat.

    5m_zps0f613a57.jpg
    Got some Gesso on the edges and sprinkled ultra fine glitter on the wet Gesso. Dried it with my heat tool from undeeath.

    6m_zpsc2c46fc4.jpg
    Then I glued the notecard to the mat, and glued some ribbon in between.

    7m_zpsbb8c23af.jpg
    Made a fluffy bow, using some more ribbon (seambinding) and I glued all the layers to my base card.

    8m_zpsc171e34b.jpg
    I die cutted some flowers from, old prima packaging and some fabric, selected the light grey rose from the kit and ripped some mesh.

    9mo_zpsd05c840b.jpg
    Stacked my flowers together (I stapled the first 2) and added a little mesh in between the first and second flower.

    10mo_zps0f0832c4.jpg
    Glued the rest of the mesh right under the fluffy bow and placed my flower.

    11m_zps7c1273b7.jpg
    I stamped my sentiment (not the best stamping) and added some liquid pearls.

    12m_zps73625527.jpg
    I lightly Gesso-ed the birdcage and sprinkled it with fine glitter. Then glued it in place.

    birthdaywishescloseupm_zpsffa66891.jpg
    I highlighted the oval shape, using stickles in diamond.

    birthdaywishesm_zps941ceca7.jpg
    And called it done.

    0m_zpsbdacf86c.jpg
    For my base card I folded a piece of cardtock double and trimmed it down to 4.1/4 x 6.3/8 My fold is on the left side.

    1mo_zps3583deea.jpg
    I cut this piece of PP at 4.3/8 x 6.1/2 Got the edges pretty much distressed.

    2m_zps6dde90b6.jpg
    Then I cut this notecard down to 3.3/4 x 6 And I glued an extra strip to the right, cause I needed to lose that bow. (later on… it didn't even made a difference)

    3m_zps7984cbd6.jpg
    I glued the layers down to my base card.

    4m_zpse598bdc7.jpg
    Then from a scratch piece of notecard, I took this coer and glued it down, raised with a piece of cardboard.

    5m_zps86fb4e28.jpg
    I glued the wood embellisment in place and also added a piece of lace. I took some pearl strand from my stash and glued it in place. In this picture you see only the top half, but I glued it all the way to the bottom.

    6m_zps19634ffa.jpg
    Then I took some hemp, wrapped it around my fingers twice and stapled it in the middle
    I also made a little bow.

    7m_zpsb93a819d.jpg
    Glued it in place with a big blob of Beacon 3 in 1

    8m_zps2f7ea68d.jpg
    And glued a flower, from last month's kit, in place.

    9m_zps5f6b53a1.jpg
    I wrote the word Always at the bottom. Added some Gesso to the top right and left bottom using a spatula

    10mo_zps85dcad57.jpg
    And sprinkled some Diamond Dust Glass Glitter on the wet Gesso. Place a srap piece of
    paper over it… pressed the glass into the wet Gesso and shake of the excess.

    dreamalwayscloseupm_zps0415f5af.jpg
    I love how day light, make this Glass Glitter shine, and yet it is so subtile.

    dreamalwaysm_zpse51ebea9.jpg
    And I called my card DONE!

    For my base card I folded a piece of cardtock double and trimmed it down to 6.1/4 x 4.3/8 My fold is at the top.

    1m_zps0b5bd7fd.jpg
    I took this BEAUTIFUL notecard and distressed the edges.

    2m_zpsd861e178.jpg
    And adhered it to my base card, and distressed the edges of my base card also.

    3m_zps217e101d.jpg
    I had some left-overs pieces of lace which I glued at the top and bottom.

    4m_zps55431402.jpg
    I took 2 of the BlueFe chippies that came in the kit and gave them a coat with Rangers Glue 'N Seal and sprinkled some copper glitter on top.

    5m_zps5fca3687.jpg
    Look at that sparkle!!! Love it!

    6mo_zps1a0c3da2.jpg
    I glued the chippies to my card and a flower that came in the kit. I added a few tiny leaves from my stash.

    7m_zpscd5930da.jpg
    I added some stickles (crystal) to the lace for some extra bling.

    8m_zps099d9871.jpg
    Stamped my sentiment, using Archival ink.

    9m_zps10a6506c.jpg

    For my base card I folded a piece of cardtock double and trimmed it down to 4.1/2 x 7.1/2 My fold is at the left side.

    1m_zpsaf160f07.jpg
    I cut this piece of PP at 4.1/4 x 7.1/4

    2m_zps5fb066cb.jpg
    For this card I wanted to do a little something different. Instead of layering paper I wanted to layer laces/ribbons. I selected these 4.

    3m_zps56cb1fa9.jpg
    I distressed the edges of my paper and started layering the ribbons like this.

    4m_zps81551acd.jpg
    The light blue lace on top, I stapled a second layer of it, from half way, towards the bottom.

    5m_zpsfee12aa5.jpg
    Made a few knots in the top layer. Then glued everything down to my base card and trimmed off the excess from the laces/ribbons

    6m_zpsa151f060.jpg
    I also glued some pearl strand onto my card.

    7n_zps7f44cb18.jpg
    Then I selected my embellishments.

    8m_zps932a5062.jpg
    And glued them down.

    9m_zpsc4e51072.jpg
    On a scrap piece of paper, I stamped my sentiment, using Archival ink, and I lightly distressed the edges of the paper.

    10n_zpsedd4f75a.jpg
    To create a wavy sentiment, I glued the right side down, and only added a drop of glue to the left side….puffed it up a little and hold it in place for a few seconds. Then I added a couple of rhinestones.

    11m_zps395b7bf6.jpg
    For the finishing touch I added some stickles in lime.

    thinkingofyou_zps378b286a.jpg
    And called it done.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              AWW, you all making me blush! Thank you for your sweet comments.

              And Kimberly, yes sometimes I do stamp my sentiments on the inside. But I love a handwritten note also. I find that a little more personal to the one whoever gets the card.
