Once again, I am pressed for time for a card.  So I wanted to go for a simple card using three pieces of 6 inch x 6 inch paper.  I selected a denim piece, an ivory piece with denim colored stars and the piece with the masculine images.  Once again, I am working on a grey card background to really make the denim colors pop!

I cut three pieces from the papers.
The background at 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches.
The contrast at 5 1/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches
The piece that is placed horizontally, which is the back of the denim piece I previously cut - just a tiny amount of waste paper that is 4 inches long.
Finally the image I wanted from the final piece.

Next I distressed all of the edges with my scissors.  To be honest I need a new blade for my paper cutter.  Distressing is awesome to cover those ragged edges!

I inked the edges with the Prima Chalk ink, included in the main kit, in "Farmers Jeans".
It really gives an excellent contrast.

I then adhered all of the background pieces together.  I do this in case I don't like how it looks.  I can always change it before committing to the card.  After this background was put together I used the KaiserCraft spray in denim.  For this card I wanted a bit of a grungy look so I didn't even test spray.  So what you see is what I got after "priming"!

I then adhered the image to the card using dimensional tape.  While the mist was drying, I took a denim star and adhered a wooden heart and xoxo from the kit to the heart using tacky glue.  I also tied a bow in the twine included and adhered it to the card.

 Finally I put the love wooden piece in the upper corner.  Allowing the entire front to dry.
Once everything is dry and I make sure it is sturdy, I used dry adhesive to adhere the entire piece to the grey card.

This kit is simply amazing.  I can hardly wait until the weekend to play some more with all of the wonderful papers.
