Good morning! Today marks the start of another challenge on the Papertake Weekly challenge and this was a fun one for me. The theme this week is to make a card that doubles as more than a card and I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to have a go at making a book card.
You can find the tutorial that I used here.
The image is Silent Night Tilda which is a favorite of mine but an image that I have not yet used this year and she has been coloured up to match this beautiful background paper from the Basic Grey Nordic collection.
The blue mat was again created using the emboss resist technique and the same swirl stamp that was used on my card yesterday. To embellish, I have layered on a lace doily, a piece of silver twig from a Christmas pick and some sparkly snowflakes for a winter wonderland effect.
Inside is the perfect spot to tuck a little gift and I think that I have the perfect gift in mind. It has been finished off with two sentiments and another snowflake leaving plenty of room to add a handwritten message for the recipient.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge. Be sure to stop by the Papertake Weekly blog and see all of the wonderful DT creations.
