As it's too soon to put my Easter cards up here I have had to search through some of my old cards... one of my favourite 3D cards to make are Faux Book cards quite a lot of basic preparation but once decorated they do look lovely. Sadly the only pics I could find were of an unfinished card I was making for a friend's 60th birthday ( I use these cards for milestone birthdays).
I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto some lovely heavy pearlised vellum, then embossed it with the embossing folder, when I was cutting it out I left enough paper to tuck behind my faux pages so that when the 'book' was opened the flyleaf still covered what was inside. All that was left to do was the fun bit ... all the decorating I was making this one 'shabby chic' with lots of labels and carte postale type stamps and of course butterflies. The inside of the finished card read Happy 60th Birthday.
Well that's it for today ...Jasper (our black Lab) has decided it's lunch time so bye for now xx Annie
