We had a very special birthday here last weekend, my Mother-in-Law, Renee, was 80! She's amazing too- totally active and out and about! I made this book card for her, as she is a real fan of vintage and books!
For my card, I followed a wonderful tutorial here by the fabulous Tina - I've been blown away by her awesome book cards and have totally cased her work for my first attempt at one.
I made a pocket inside the card for some gift tags bearing some days out to some of London's most beautiful palaces.
Of course, Vintage is not complete without a generous helping of Frantage which you can see here on a Tim Holtz mirror die cut and some chipboard letters.
The papers are a mix of Basic Grey and Prima Fairy Belle.
The sideboard die is a Marianne die and the little bag and mirror are from my stash. Renee is also a huge Bronte fan, and I think the little cabochon of Charlotte Bronte was from Renee!
A pic above of the back and then below, a picture of the card in a box that I had to make because of course, no envelopes were quite going to fit!
Lots of the bits and pieces I used are from Live and Love Crafts including the beautiful pink poppy flowers and some of the stringed pearls and the pink lace around the picture. Live and Love Crafts have some wonderful vintage goodies and my parcel came beautifully wrapped in tissue -I love little touches like that!
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
It's All About the Vintage - use Lace
Creative Moments - Anything Goes with Swirls and Pearls
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by and getting to the bottom of my picture-heavy post!!
