Happy Birthday Linda

Hi Everyone
Just a quick post to share with you a card that I made yesterday to give to one of my dearest friends, Linda.

Her birthday was Saturday and in her honor I made one of these cool book cards. She  really liked this.She was so surprised when I gave her the card.

Here is the card closed. I used designer paper and added a spine cover to the book and had it come over onto the front of the card/book cover. I  had embossed it and then used white ink to show off the embossed design.

Here is the card opened.

Here is a close up of the verse on the inside cover.

This is a shot of the card open to the inside. I love the way this side has a recessed area, it enables you to showcase a few things in this spot.

I just used some spare flowers I had in my stash and I had the this rosette but since it was round it needed to be smaller to fit better, so I just cut it in half to fit it inside the opening. I used a Hero Arts  happy birthday stamp and it fit perfectly on the Spellbinders Banner. 

Hope you enjoyed this card book. Stop in on Monday, I have something new from Sparkle N Sprinkle to show you.

Hope to see you then
