I created this card using the Shabby Chalet kit:
And here is how it came together.
For my first layer I cut a piece of PP at 5.2 x 8.1
I laid a piece of tulle over my card, like this.
And cut it, holding it in place, and deciding how it should look, as I was cutting along.
It came out like this. The left over pieces on the right.........
I cut that piece in half and.....
started to ruffle it up
Then I wrapped a wire around it, and afterwards I clipped off the ends.
I cut a strip of PP at 1.5 x 6.5
spritzed both front and backside with water and let it sit for a moment.
Then I started to ruffle or crumble it up like in the picture. I had to do this carefully, cause the paper easily rips when it is wet.
And whilst heat setting my ruffles I pinched the middle.
I distressed the edges of my frist paper layer, glued my tulle on (using Fabri-Tac) and I hot glued my ruffled paper strip on. I only put glue in the middle of the paper strip cause I wanted to be able to tuck things in.
I cut out one of the doilies that was on the prima flower packaging and place it like this.
Then I pulled apart one of the prima flowers (that came in the kit)....
And made some smaller buds out of them. Simply by pinching 1 of the circles together and wrapping some wire around the buds
I thought they looked cute!
Then I started layering. First 1 of the circles (from the pulled apart flower) and then on top the ruffled tulle, I made earlier.
From a previous kit: I had some of that wooden fence left over, so I cut off 1 part and glued it down like in the picture. On top I glued a little piece of the pearl spray that came in the Jan kit. The little blue flower, was the center flower from the flower I took apart. (do I still make sense?)
Then I cut a few different sizes from the beaded sprays. I twisted 2 togeter....
And glued them, hanging beneath my ruffled paper strip.
I glued the little flower buds in place
And the other beaded spray, that were cut in different sizes.
I added some Stickles, in diamond, to the flowers on the paper
And some glossy accents on the buds that are printed on the paper.
Then I painted a clock icon with white acrylic paint
And glued it down, looking like it hangs on that piece of fence. Like a rod.
I added a little lace bow and a tiny baby rose.
Then I randomly added some gesso
I cut a white mat (3/4) like in the picture and glued it to the back.
For the base of my card I cut a piece of cardstock at 9 x 12, folded it double, distressed the edges and added some gesso here and there.
Then I glued everything together.
and called it done! Hope you like it.
