      Gosh…. I just totally love this GORGEOUS kit. And I think, that if you got yours… then you would agree with me.

      Whilst working with the kit for first reveal, I always save my scraps of paper. These are just perfect for making cards. Including the barcode strips, of the Kaisercraft papers. On the back the have a lovely pate.
      So, here's the card I made for today:

      card_zps343432c3.jpg

      I snapped some pictures whilst creating, for you to see, how it came together.
      1_zps1d5ba914.jpg
      For my base card I cut a piece of cardstock at 8.1/2 x 6.3/8 Fold it double and then spritzed it with a pink glimmermist and distressed the edges.

      2_zps48a7054d.jpg
      For the inside of the card I cut a piece of the same cardstock (not misted) at 8.1/4 x 5.3/4 Fold it double and used a border punch at both sides. Then, using my finger, I added some Gesso to the top and bottom and let it dry.

      3_zpsa091b32d.jpg
      Then I cut a piece of PP at 2.1/2 x 3 and distressed the edges.

      4_zps765c6368.jpg
      I glued: my punched inside to the inside of my base card, the distressed piece of PP in place and 2 strips of the bling that came in our Main kit. Voila… inside done!

      5_zps271b1e23.jpg
      Back to the front on the card! For my background I cut a piece of the polka dot paper at 4 x 6

      6_zps24059e8b.jpg
      Then, and I know that everyone has these pieces saved…, I glued a left over piece of doily at the top. On 1 of my layouts I cut a cricle and the striped paper at the bottom it a piece what was left over. So I cut it to fit for my card.

      7_zps6a396dc1.jpg
      I cut out this sign from one of the papers

      8_zps47ee9369.jpg
      Gave it a medium coat of Gesso, which I spread around using my finger. Let it dry for 3 minutes and……….

      9_zps59659eb6.jpg
      Then I placed a towel on top, and gently rubbed over it with my hand. (like petting the papers of your new delivered kit)

      10_zpscf0b9090.jpg
      Gently took away the towel and I was impressed with the texture it gave. Love it!

      11_zps68224385.jpg
      Then I cut one of the barcode strips at 3.3/4 I KNOW the ruler says something different, but trust me.

      12_zps2d502c84.jpg
      on the back I added 2 layers of foamtape (took 1 of later on) and glued the leftover 1/2 inches to the back of the foamtape.

      13_zps3de4b5d6.jpg
      And glued it in the middle of my sign.

      14_zpsf59771f3.jpg
      Another barcode strip was cut at 6.1/2 inches and pleated randomly.

      15_zps1af62847.jpg
      I glued it to the left side of my card. Only added glue where the arrows are.

      16_zps79fb3f3a.jpg
      Then I glued my sign in place and some pearl strand at the top and bottom of my card.

      17_zps18b4031a.jpg
      I cut 2 strips of the bling…..

      18_zps70244725.jpg
      And to make it more bendable I made cuts in between the bling.

      19_zps4985bab3.jpg
      Then I glued it along my sign, like in the picture.

      20_zpsc4d27c9c.jpg
      I took 2 of the stickers (watch the marks) that came in the main kit. I trimmed the dark one with the sentiment on it and distressed it a little. The I glued it on the orange one, (that says love)

      21_zps90896e19.jpg
      And placed my sentiment to my card. I also glued a wooden icon and some leftover flowers from a previous Swirlydoos kit, in place.

      22_zps8fe1fa06.jpg
      Also on the sticker sheet you find this butterfly, which I cut out and inked the edges of.

      card_zps343432c3.jpg
      I glued it at the bottom of my card. To add 1 more tiny detail, I glued 2 little pearls on the wood icon. And I called it done.

      Hope you like it, and if you haven't safe your scraps, (I can't imagine you haven't) then start doing so, cause they make the greatest cards.

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."
