      Everyone got their kit already???? Are you loving it as much as I do? I bet you do!!!!

      Here's a card I made with this gorgeous kit
      --_zpsbb7ee239.jpg
      And here's how I did it:
      0_zpsa98b8026.jpg
      For the base of my card, I cut a white piece of cardstock at 12 x 5.7
      5.7 is the hight of my card.

      1_zps4b0fee72.jpg
      I added some papersoft ink around the edges and gave it a spritz with water, to bleed a little.

      2_zpse4472e56.jpg
      The I randomly added some acrylic paint with my finger. Just to give it some texture.
      dried it with a heatgun.

      3_zpse0f76735.jpg
      here's what it looks like in close up.

      4_zpsf614ef29.jpg
      I cut a strip of PP at 5.6 x 1.6 Distressed and inked the edges.

      5_zpsd46f0e1e.jpg
      Glued at the left side on my card.

      6_zps9d2ff0a4.jpg
      I cut another piece of PP at 5.6 x 5.1 and cut out the middlest part, for using on another project.

      7_zps5c3f41f1.jpg
      Distressed the edges and glued it like in the picture. The right side is a little overlapping.

      8_zpsd2a93ce4.jpg
      I cut another piece of PP at 5.6 x 4.2 Distressed and inked the edges.

      9_zps9a7e92dc.jpg
      I flipped it over and added glue, half an inch from the left side to what you can see in this picture.

      10_zpsbfacfe34.jpg
      I glued it in place.

      11_zps87463a0a.jpg
      I cut two little strips

      12_zps71c3f9f6.jpg
      and glued them in the upper right coer behind my curled back paper. At the left side I glued a strip of lace TO MY CARD. (<—This is important)

      13_zps7469e120.jpg
      I cut a little strip and half a circle, like in the picture and gently distressed the edges.

      14_zps16d357bf.jpg
      Then I took this wonderful paintable notecard and 3 colors of distress ink and start watercoloring
      the image.

      15_zpsabd7a6f1.jpg
      I added the tiny strip, I cut earlier, and some leaves, which I took off later on. I glued two layers cardboard (from the box my kit came it) to the back of the notecard. I didn't glued the notecard to my card yet.

      17_zps3643d0e4.jpg
      I selected my embellies.

      18_zpsbb05aa57.jpg
      I cut another 2 strips which I trimmed like in the picture. Distressed and inked their edges.

      19_zps788396fa.jpg
      I glued the 2 banner strips at the left side. Wrapped some cord around my note card and glued
      the note card in place. I cut the metal leaves apart and glued them in the upper right coer.

      20mon_zps959c78c2.jpg
      I then added the half circle to the top of my notecard and place a pearl to pretty it up a bit.

      21mon_zps1010257d.jpg
      I added some masking for extra interest. And added, randomly, some brush strokes with Gesso.

      22mon_zps1e61b2e6.jpg
      I tied some cord into a bow, and glued it to the (already) wrapped around cord.
      Die cut a flourish and added some pearls at the bottom of the notecard. And for finishing touch, I loaded a small brush with Silks in Emperor's gold and flicked it on my card and called it…done!

      I hope you liked it!

            Pauline, so much goes into your little cards!! I love it!

            "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."

                                  This design is the perfect road map for a birthday card for my oldest son.
                                  I used a square of burlap for one of the layers and I tied twine around the joual card. A Prima wood embellie treated with Inka Gold in Old Gold and Copper was my finishing touch on a masculine card.

                                  Paulien, thanks so much for your tutorial!!!!!!!!
