Book Cards

Hi there everyone!
I am so lucky to have the opportunity to show you how to make these wonderful cards – beautiful on the front and explosive inside!

They never fail to impress and if you follow my video, (you will find the link at the end of this post) I am sure you will absolutely love making them……
go on, have a go!

For my first card, I have used the lovely palette of soft greens, blues and yellow …..  #ME Collection.


This is the front of the book card decorated with papers from the #Me collection. The Damask Border is a glorious decorative die just released by Kaisercraft, I have cut two out and stuck them on top of each other to create extra depth and dimension.


This is the ‘explosive’ inside! As you open it up, it pops out just like a book … hence it’s name. Did you spot that sparkly glitter tape that I put down the sides …  just beautiful!

For my second card I have used the subtle colour palette of the ‘True Love’ collection for a very special Valentines Day Card.


This beautiful picture was cut from P2032 Patterned Paper, it was so very pretty that I did not need to do much. The addition of some tulle, a fancy pin, some sequins and flower added dimension.


…and the inside!
