    First let me say, that I don't measure my papers when I make a card. But for the card tutorials
    I just have to. I mostly eyeball everything I do. (and I do encourge that.)
    For today I have made this card:


    And here's how this card came together:

    For the base of my card I cut a piece of cardstock at 10.2 x 7.4 and foulded it double.
    I slightly distressed the edges.

    My first layer of PP I cut at 5 x 7.4
    I slightly distressed the edges and adhered it to my base card.

    The second layer off PP was cut at 4.6 x 7
    I slightly distressed the edges and adhered it to my card like in the picture.

    Then I cut another piece of PP at 3.5 x 7.1
    I slightly distressed the edges and adhered it to my card.

    Then I cut another piece of PP at 2.6 x 6.2
    I slightly distressed the edges and glued a piece of cardboard to the back.

    The cardboard did not completely covered the backside. I left the top, about 1 inch, without it. Then adhered it to my card.

    Then I cut another piece of PP at 2 x 1.1 On this piece I stamped my sentiment.

    I took some embellies and played around till I was happy with how it looked. (no glueing down yet)

    I took the little piece and rounded the top coers. I marked the space where I wanted my sentiment to go and stamped it using Archival ink. First in coffee then in jet black on top.
    This gives it a nice vintage look.

    On the wood feather, I first inked the edges with Gathered Twigd distress ink, using my finger.
    Cause I wanted the ink only on the outher edges. Then I dabbed some Gesso on the feather.
    I glued my sentiment in place and the strip of lace.

    I glued my frame back in place, using a luiquid glue. The flowers, are oldies but still lovely,
    1 was glued under the frame and one on top.

    I took 1 of these flowers and cut the petals apart, to use them as leaves for the flower at the bottom.

    Finished that one off with a gorgeous Prima mecanical, the leaves, ribbon and button.

    At the top I wrapped some twine around the, raised layer, of PP and dabbed some Gesso on it.
    I also added another piece of lace right under it.

    I also added some Gesso to the right bottom coer of the frame. And I was done.

    I hope you like this card and give it a try yourself.

          So pretty, Paulien!

          "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."

                I did this over a week ago, and then things went a little crazy and I forgot about posting it.

                I substituted a large handmade flower for the two small ones and used 2 wood feathers (colored with Paper Soft) as leaves. The wood frame was also inked and backed with a stamped sentiment and embellished with a butterfly.

                Paulien, I love this design; I can see using it a lot; thanks so much!!!!!



                Oh Peggy, this is fabulous!!!!!! I love your flower and that beautiful lace. The delicate distressing is perfect as well as your stamped sentiment. Beautiful card!
