Book Card Two

This next book card I am going to enter in Tuesdays Color Challenge over at The Outlawz.  The challenge was to use Cream, Peach and Green.  Beautiful colors no doubt but finding paper that actually said peach or cream was not the easiest thing to do so I had to work with what I could find.  The peach appears dark in the photo but it is a shade of peach, at least that is what the label on the bin said. Again I want to say thanks to Tracy, because without her this little book card would never have been created.

This book card is sized at 5.5 x 5.5, which I really like.  Thank you Tracy!

I used Webster Pages and Bazzill cardstock. The paper was embedded with peach, cream and red flowers so it worked perfectly. The Cream and Peach roses are from Wild Orchid. (Love Wild Orchid flowers)

I punched the border with none other than a Martha Stewart punch.




On the inside I created a pocket on the left side and added a tag for a personal message. I also added a sentiment on the pocket.

On the right is the shadow box where I added a shaped border tape to the outside of the box and added some K&Company 3-dimensional stickers.

The following photos show the book card laying down allowing you to see the illusion of an actual book.  Additionally, I wanted to show how I stitched the spine instead of adding any embellishment.




Well ladies I hope you've enjoyed this rather long post but I did want so much to share this new discovery for me.  Remember to check out the tutorial on Tracy's blog or you can watch her video right here on Mema's Crafts.  Check out my tutorial listing in the sidebar.

As always thanks for stopping by......remember to
"find beauty in all things and then ....go and create."
