    I sooooo love this GORGEOUS kit…. I simply couldn't stop making cards.
    Here's one for you with step by step instructions.

    And here's how it came together:

    0m_zpsd40ce951.jpg
    For the base of my card, I folded a piece of red cardstock double, and cut it down to 5.6 x 6.6 I distressed the edges a little and inked it up using Paper Soft.

    Then I cut a piece of cream cardstock at 5.5 x 6.3 and randomly inked it up.

    A piece of lace, (from my stash) was glued at the top, using Beacon 3 in 1 Craft Glue. Krissy has this in the boutique.

    Then I cut another piece of cardstock at 5.1 x 5.2

    I didn't do anything to the edges, just glued it on top of the lace.

    I cut a paperbag at 4.4 x 5.3 and scratched the bottom edge with my nails. The notecard on the right side came in the Salutaions Main Kit.

    I glued both pieces like so. First the piece of paperbag, then the notecard.

    this Documented Daily strip was found on 1 of the papers. I slightly distressed it.

    Then… OMW how I love this bling!!!! I cut a piece of it and glued it down, with the backside up.

    I had a hard time, figuring out what to do with these beautiful wood icon scissors, so I tranformed them into a new embellishment.

    I glued them together like this….

    And put the rose on top of it.

    12_zps886813e8.jpg
    Then I wanted to use this With Love tag and slightly distressed the edges and glued it down. I also glued down a piece of the red trim, using Beacon Fabri-Tac.

    13_zps88d8e283.jpg
    The transformed embellishment, was glued at the right top, bringing all the layers together.

    I placed my flowers.(I rubbed some inka gold on my flowers) And for the finishing touch I added some copper liquid pearls.

    I hope you like it, and give it a try.

    Here are some more cards, just for some extra inspiration

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 know, in a million years, I don't think that I could have come up with that idea with the scissors!!!!
          Thanks, Paulien, for the gorgeous cards, the tutorial, and (especially) your inspiration to look at my icons and chippies in a whole new way! !heart

            Beautiful cards Paulien and such a clever idea to glue the scissors together, they almost look like a dial you'd see on a compass! TFS!

            Beautiful! Makes me think that even I could make some cards!
