I wanted to make a book style card similar to the one I created HERE. I started off by making the cover using some of my wonderful Maja Design papers. I managed to create the whole card using one sheet of 12" x 12" paper. The finished card is 4.1/2" x 6.1/2" and the compartment inside measures 2.1/2" x 4" and is large enough to hold a small gift or a gift card. I don't have the instructions anymore on how to make up the book part, I just 'wing it' and it usually comes out OK - lol.
For the front of the card I added some greenery from a Tim Holtz die and I made a large flower using the Tattered Florals die and some Tim Holtz Core-dinations card.
To finish off the card I added some ribbon, dyed with some Spun Sugar Distress Stain to make a closure and added sentiment 'with love' from Tim Holtz's Simple Sayings stamp set.
Thank you Gloria at Craft Hoarders Anonymous for this opportunity to be a Guest Designer and thanks to you too, for looking, I hope to see you again soon. Hugs, Anne xx
