More than just a card.......

I have stumbled upon Elly's blog and have been inspired by her work. Elly is from the Netherlands and she has a wonderful blog! Check it out and see the unique and beautiful cards she makes!

Elly created a really pretty "Book Card" and this is my version of it.

I used Impression Obsession stamps and the new Nellie Snellen cutting dies. I just love that circle "doily"; it is so delicate and goes with the border die.

The swirls are from the Creatables die set.

I used Memory Box printed paper as well as distress inks to decorate the front and inside.

Here is the inside of the "book". The walls are made by accordion folding the card stock and decorating the edge with the border die.

This little book/box is so versatile.........you can fill it with chocolates (as I did below) for your Valentine OR put a picture inside and it will look like a frame, ready for someone's birthday or Mother's Day! I am sure that you will come up with lots of uses for it!

These are the new dies that I used to create the sample.

This will be a class in the near future!!! I am sure that many of you will love it!

Also, keep a look out on the calendar, as the flower cards will also be a class!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Anna, love the book/card/box idea. Colors are very pretty. Really great for that extra special gift one can enclose. Putting the candy in the box reminds me when I was a kid Lifesavers had a similar idea and filled it with rolls of their candy. It would be great for Easter time. Put me on the list for the class when you schedule it.
