The new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is to create a card and gift and I chose to make a notebook and card set which were very quickly snapped up at the craft fair I did on Saturday - note to self: make more!!
I made my little notebook as the gift, first cutting plain chipboard for covers and then cartridge paper for the inside pages, I then covered the chipboard with a neutral patterned paper and, using distress inks, sponged around the edges. I then coloured a piece of white cardstock with distress ink and stamped the script as a background then distressed the edges with my scissors. The bird, flourish and word stamps are all from PaperArtsy Hot Pick 1005 and they were stamped also with distress inks. I then bound it together with my Bind it All.
For the card I used the same patterned paper, again inked around the edges and used a Stampin up punch to give it the notebook style edge, this time I used a PaperArtsy die to cut the bird shape and then stamped the image. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
