Hi Everyone, I'm back today with the card book that went into the box, I showed this morning. I have used Crafters Companion A3 ivory pearlised card cut into a 8 x8 inch card. I cut out 3 identical
ones to make the book, and glued them together with double sided tape. I used the same paper form my local craft shop, and the cut up lace and pearls on top. Then I added the organza roses to it too.
The center of the card is Spellbinders lacy circles and parisian motif too. Finished it off with an ivory organza bow, with a pearly round button type of thing I make. Basically you use a dob of clear glue gel on a piece of greased paper you find under your sticky pads. Then you pop pearls into it in what ever shape you would like. Any holes you cover with clear glitter. I got this idea after admiring Sue Wilson's on her cards so as I couldn't buy any, I made my own.
