    First, I would like to say thank you, for the sweet comments you all leave me on my mini tutorials.
    As from today I will only post 1 thread, where you can find the tutorial and the assignments. Please do post your projects here too.

    Here's my card and instructions:

    justforyou1600.jpg

    1-4.jpg

    I choose these pieces of scraps, and an old Prima packaging, to create my card with.

    2-4.jpg

    I distressed and inked my edges of all my papers, the packaging and my base card.
    Glued my Prima packaging as my first layer.

    3-4.jpg

    I start building my layers of paper, like this.

    4-4.jpg

    Glued my 2 strips together.

    5-3.jpg

    glued my strips to my card and added another piece of paper on top of it.

    6-3.jpg

    To create dimension I glued a piece of cardbox to the back of my sentiment card.

    7-3.jpg

    Glued my lace and sentiment card in place, using hot glue.

    8-3.jpg

    Twisted my lace a couple of times and glued the end to my prima packacging.

    9-2.jpg

    Took some beads and metal end caps to create some dangles.

    10-1.jpg

    they came out like this.

    11-2.jpg

    Took some tiny spools (came in a previous kit) and some DMC tread.

    12-2.jpg

    added the tread to the spools and secured the knot inside one of the spools with some hot glue.

    13-2.jpg

    I lifted one of the spools and twisted it

    14-2.jpg

    till it looked something like this.

    15-1.jpg

    Glued it down to my card. 1 spool on my sentiment card and one at the right side.
    I added my dangles.

    16-1.jpg

    selected some flowers and leaves

    17-1.jpg

    glued them together on my card and placed some self adhesive pearls.

    18-1.jpg

    and I was done.
    I hope you liked this tutorial.

                Your card is breathtaking, Paulien. I LOVE that you made your own dangles – I'd love to try this, but don't know where to get the pieces of metal you threaded them on (anyone?). Thanks for the super cool idea of how to use the spools – I would have never thought of that.

                    Paulien, that is fabulous!!!

                    "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."

                      You can get them in the beading section of Michael's or Walmart, etc. They're called head pins and spacers or bead caps.

                      LOVE your card Paulien. You are SO creative!
