Hi everyone, Here's my latest card using the gorgeous April kit.
And this is how it came together:
For my second layer, I cut a piece of PP at 7.5 x 5.5 and then gave the top a little shape. (I had to do mine in 2 parts, because of working with my left-overs) Distressed the edges, but didn't glue it down yet.
Folded the strip around the 2 layers (the blue and the white) and at this point I only glued the
2 ends together. On the right side, I pressed it down to get a nice folding line, then flipped it over, and secured on the backside of the blue paper, with a drop of glue.
For my corrugated cardboard: I used the box our kits comes in. Cut a 6×6 square out of it, sprayed it with water, let it sit for a few seconds, and then peeled off the top paper layer, and there you have your own corrugated cardboard.
I rounded the petals a little by rolling the edges between my fingers. Then from the gorgeous bling that came in our kit, I cut a (dice) figure 5 out to dress up the center of the flower. Using some hot glue, I glued my flower in place, just like this.April 19, 2014 at 4:29 pm #236442

"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."April 19, 2014 at 5:05 pm #236444April 19, 2014 at 7:37 pm #236445

Hi, When I went to see your tutorial, all your pictures were replaced by a placeholder from Photobucket. When I clicked on each placeholder, the image showed up, but that sort of ruined the ability to scroll down through your technique to see what you had done.
Were you aware of this?April 27, 2014 at 1:34 am #236454April 27, 2014 at 4:08 pm #236455
