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 patern.
So, here's the card I made for today:

I snapped some pictures whilst creating, for you to see, how it came together.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

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.

I cut out this sign from one of the papers

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

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

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

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

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.

And glued it in the middle of my sign.

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

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

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

I cut 2 strips of the bling.....

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

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

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)

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

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

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.
