I made this accordion card for the list mom of the birthday swap I belong. This swap took the sign up in December, and the swap started on Jan. 1, so, my birthday being on 12.31, I'm the last one of the list, the last one to receive, from all the members on this list, the end of the year. But when I signed up, she sent me the birthday card right away, in December. How nice of her! I even received a couple of cards from the members on the list too! So, not to mention she keeps this list, sending the reminder for next month's birthday every month, I thought I would make a card, not a regular 2 folded card, but looks like a little present instead :-) And this is what I made. I got the instruction here. The first picture shows you the inside of this little booklet. All stamps are from Fiskars. I luv wine, esp. RED wine, and that's the reason I bought this set :-) I colored with color pencils, inkpads (using the brush & a bit of water), used copics for shades, and Glossy accent on the wine bottle & glasses. I used Swirl punch on dp around the Grape, to match with the vine. I cut thin pieces from the same dp to make a design on the last page. I also used many tiny pearls on the front and the last page inside. I layered two die cuts using pop up glue dots on each layer, and ribboned through the bottom layer. I really like how it turned out. The base is rather easy to make but it took a while to make a design, to make a book which has a "Story", from the beginning to the end. I'm mailing this tomorrow to our list mom. I'm also submitting this to some challenges.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog today. Have a nice evening! :-)
