A CARD FOR BOOK LOVERS!!!

This card I designed for my class yesterday and they all enjoyed making it. I used the awesome DSP Well Worn which I will miss when it retires at the end of the month. The books are slightly curved and of cause sponged to give the 3D look. I used the Simply Scored tool to create the 'ridges' on the books spine. And I used quite a few different stamp sets to get the word on the books. I wanted use word that looked like book titles but were actually part of the sentiments for the card. The background DSP is from the First Edition pack that is so awesome for background things!


NOW to things reitered - yesterday we go the retirement list. It's quite a list as we are reformating our stamp pads so all of the current ones are retiring. AND the marker pens will be only sold in sets bar a few popular colours so I would get in early if you want to complete your sets. More Mustard marker pen has already run out!!!

    1. thanks for your lovely comment Judy - unfortunately I haven't written a tutorial for this card. It's easy to do. I scored the pieces of DSP to get the ridges then I rounded the strips by wrapping them around pens and pencils. I used a very skinny strip of sticky strip to stick them on the First Edition DSP and ensured I had a 'curve' still on the strip. I had sponged the FE DSP BEFORE I stuck it down. The strips of DSP for the book ends were also all sponged after I had grooved them.
