The Book Club

The wonderful Kathy chose our dare this week at Daring Cardmakers;

This week it's me (Kathy) setting the dare and I'm inviting you along to
The Book Club
I'd simply like you to take your inspiration from Books - and you can do this any way you wish.
You could make a card in the form of a book, make a background using a page (or scanned page) from a book, use an excerpt from a book on your card as a background or focal piece, or use an actual story/title/book to inspire your card.
If you choose to use a specific book for your inspiration, don't forget to let us know which it was.


I chose the book background option and teamed it with the gorgeous citrus shades of the current Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World;



and made this;



I used;


A vintage receipt book image from the Graphics Fairy mixed with roses from Victorian Vignettes
MME Stella and Rose Hazel "Special" Fine Floret paper
A Hero Arts Digi Butterfly
Tissue Paper
Foam Flower from Hobbycraft
XCut Mavis border die
Nestability Die
Basic Grey rub on
Twine from The Ribbon Girl
Inking
Hand Stitching


My DCM Teamies have made fantastic book inspired cards - you can check them out Here.
