Snowman Book Card

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing a very simple book shaped card made with the WS Designs Book Template.

I cut the base card out of a piece of purple A5 card stock using the WS Designs Book Template. I drew pencil lines to represent the pages in the book.

I stamped the Woodware Startstruck Snowman stamp with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image out with the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles die and inked around the edges with the new Seasonal Distress Ink Seedless Preserves.

I stamped the greeting (Creative Expressions) with Black Archival ink and cut it out using the Spellbinders Double-ended Tag die. Again I inked around the edges with the Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I added some black Baker's Twine to the holes in the tag.

The backing paper is from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD. I inked around the edges with the Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and added some faux stitching with a black fineliner pen.

I added some black Baker's Twine to some Polka Dot Buttons and tied it in a knot. The buttons are from Sam Poole Creative Studios. Aren't they lovely?

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Buttons
Polka Doodles Week 44 - Shaped Cards
