Having had another sort through the recycling bag I came across a card with this image on the front.
I cut around the book on the front of the card and then scored along the page lines and the spine of the book using a score board. The book was then gently curved using the edge of my craft table before being added to the front of a really simple easel card. Really simple but effective.
I added the Poinsettia as a stopper and used pearlised paint to add the pearls on the edges of the pages.
I am entering this into the following challenges

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. I am slowly starting to sell my cards now to friends, family and work colleagues. As my confidence has grown I have started to enter Challenges on line and in magazines, and I love having to think outside of my comfort zone to come up with something different. I really like the current trend for vintage and shabby chic. I really enjoy using die cutting in my designs and am just starting to poke my toe in the water with regards to stamping and colouring my own images.
