More cards using the FPK

I created two additional cards with the kit supplies - these were for the Inspiration Gallery online and the instructions were not included on the CD in the kit.

I used several of the coordinating patterned papers from the kit for this card, stamping one of my favorite friendship sentiments on the yellow paper.  I used the wired, navy blue burlapy (is that a word?) trim across the middle.  I attached it with a strong double-sided narrow tape and then sprinkled super fine iridescent glitter in the holes.  It adds alot of sparkle!  The flower was made with one of the white glassine bags in the kit. I die-cut several layers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (the daisy-type flower), stacked and glued them together in the center and then added one of the wooden buttons with some of the yellow "stamens" around it.  I also lightly inked the petals - I was surprised that the glassine didn't resist the ink!  The bottom edge is scalloped with decorative scissors and inked with navy ink.

The card below also uses the glassine bag - this time it was embossed and die cut with a butterfly die.  I also die cut the same shape out of the orange patterned paper.  The edges of all the layers of papers are distressed and I machine stitched around the base layer to add some definition.  The white shape and coordinating stamps are from Papertrey Ink.
