Well I have been off work for almost a month now and I get to go back Monday and I am so ready (never thought I would hear myself say that)lol But wanted to get some projects done that I had planned to do. So this is the first one.
This is a Card Holder, the tutorial I got from Beate (she is one talented lady) This took a lot of 12 x 12 paper but was so worth it. I love how it turned out. I used heavy dark brown cardstock and then my patterned paper is from K&Co. The cover and back pages are of chipboard and I distressed the edges of them and the layered papers with Walnut distressed inks, Then I used my BIA corner rounder for the corners. After I got my pages scored I binded them all together with my bind it all. I used my Martha Stewart lace doily border punch and my bosskut flourish diecut, oval nestibilites and added some prima flowers with brad and spacer and hung a butterfly charm from the flower. There are flat pearl beads on the flourish, the wording is from my sizzix dies. I used the adorable Rope Swing image from Sugar Nellie by the talented Elizabeth Bell. I really had fun making this I saved it for last for I figured it was going to be hard and take forever but it didn't.
Here is a close up of the front
Here is what the inside looks like I printed up the calendar on white textured cardstock and distressed around the edges with Walnut distressed inks.
