A Book For A Friend

 Good Sunday morning!  I hope you're not snowed in or if you are, I hope you get to do some crafting at least!  Here is my favourite card that I made for today's shows.  The moment that I laid eyes on Labels 29, I thought "book" so it just had to be made!  I started with a piece of taupe card from the neutral card pack and stamped around the edges with the swirls from the Justrite Butterfly Dreams set.  I used a clear perfect medium pad to stamp with and then dusted it with gold mica powder, giving a soft shimmer to it.  I stamped the large Labels 29 matching stamp from the Good Friends set.  I coloured it with Distress markers and cut it out with the matching die.  I mounted it on the left side of my card with some mounting foam.  Next I started work on my "book" by cutting the largest size of the Labels 29 die set in brown card.  I moved down a die size and cut several pieces of vellum and several pieces of my old thrift store dictionary.  I alternated layers of the vellum and dictionary and folded them in half to create the pages of my book.  I stamped my sentiment on the top piece of vellum.  I inked the edges of the book pages with a bit of antique linen to give them an aged look.  I glued a piece of cream ribbon in place in the middle of the book to look like a bookmark.  I curled the pages of the book to give them a bit of dimension too.  I attached the book at an angle across my card.  Using the Bitty blossoms dies, I made an assortment of flowers, one I inked the entire flower with Tattered Rose and the remaining flowers, I merely inked the edges.  I cut several of the leaves and inked them with Forest Moss.  To add some interest, I cut several of the swirl from the Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose die set.  I used the swirls around the flowers and the book edge.  I matted the entire card in soft gold card to finish it off.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.

Good morning Sue, WOW, WOW, WOW, I think you have just excelled yourself!! This is an absolutely stunning card and I can't wait to see it on today's show. I love the effect of the gold mica powder. In fact I just love everything about it and what a beautiful sentiment! I like to use flowers and swirls on my cards too and what a great way to see vellum being used.

Good luck on Create and Craft today, my timer is set so that I don't miss anything.

Hugs, Michelle E xx

auscrafts said...

I'm going to be shot down in flames but this is one die I don't like when it's made into a book .the card itself is lovely but for me it's like a memorial on a tombestone ,a bit like those awfull stamped images of children with no proper faces (I think sugar nellie) they give me the creeps . Sorry

jacqui said...

This card has got to be one of my favourite s like every thing about it the colour , layout . Perfect .

Felicie said...

Heather said...

Hello Sue from snowy Kent!

It will definitely be a day for crafting and keeping warm!

Well I can see why you are pleased with today's card and rightly so it is an absolute masterpiece and something I have wanted to try for a while but there has always been another card more pressing.

I think this would make a lovely Confirmation/ Wedding card with perhaps an appropriate Bible extract such a Psalm or even Memorial book with a small photo of the person that has passed away on one side. Oh I could go on and on with this it is absolutely stunning Sue; can't wait to see it on TV.

Hope the weather is not too bad for any travelling you may have to do and that the shows go smoothly.

Congrats to the winners - Enjoy!

Hi Sue, WOW what a fabulous card, watching the show whilst sending this message. I love the idea of using this die as a book, I have used Labels 7 before, but find it isn't big enough for larger cards. We are lucky in Manchester today, no snow and some sunshine.

Hi Sue,
you really have surpassed yourself this time. I love this card - but don't think I'll attempt to replicate it. It looks AWESOME!
It's a great Sunday, don't care about the snow now that I'm watching the recordings of Tool Shed.

torridgewomble said...

Another gorgeous card Sue. Been watching you on C and c today, we have no snow but it has been cold and windy here for ages and then it RAINS, we have had a lot of that, flood warnings virtually everyday.
Now back to knitting a guards uniform for "Monkey" who likes a certain brand of T !!!!!!
