Faux Book Card

This idea is very effective but for some reason the card does not look straight on the photo... it is I promise you  ... and it looks much better in real life than here.

The Faux Book   is very easy to create and you could make it into a book with any theme that suited your recipient.

The sentiment on this is for a happy retirement but you could make yours as a Birthday book, for a Wedding/Christening/Anniversary ... or maybe a hobby book for a motoring enthusiast or a gardener.

The flowers on this card are made with the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Die and they have been glittered up with Glamour Dust.

The ribbon has been wrapped around the spine and the background has been created with an Embossing folder  which makes a plain background stand out more.

This one is made in a rich Burgundy colour and says        "Just for You .."   and the ribbon is organza edged with silk.                                                                            
The flowers are again Spellbinders.

But it is another very easy to make card and one I hope you will  try.

  1. I dont seem to be able to make a crad without a flower....I am a flower girl and I love the spellbinders dies. I do not have this flower though and it is gorgoeous, I love these cards Christina.
    Well done Hugs Elaine

  2. These look absolutely amazing.

  3. Thanks, Christina, for posting this again. It appears I missed it in my YouTube subscription when you originally made it. It's definitely one I will be trying. I'm convinced I need one of those leaf die cuts. You use them so often and so well. They definitely add a great finishing touch.

  4. These are great cards, Christina.
    I have been enjoying videos on YouTube and also your website, thank you so much for sharing.

  5. Yet another project that is a must do for me... beautiful job , I have to find the video and have a look.. your flowers are gorgeous! I am doing catchup and hopefully will be able to talk with you soon.
