'LOVE' Word Book
This was the card that I made for Keith, my other half, for Valentine's Day this year. It was the first wordbook that I had attempted.
The base cards, with the letters on, were compiled within My Craft Studio software. These were then printed and cut out. I outlined each of the letters with fine border peel-offs to give them more definition. The edges of the papers were inked using distress and Adirondack inks and Cut 'n' Dry foam - a marvellous invention.
Through out the book are embellishments made from cutting various hearts from white card using Nestabilities. These where then stamped using stamps from Elusive Images and inked with distress ink.
The larger embellishment on the front was a Nestabilities scalloped heart with the cut out made using a Nestabilities plain heart. A piece of heat resistant acetate was stamped with some swirls (again from EI), using Versamark, and then embossed in gold. This was trimmed and stuck on the reverse of the heart frame. It was then mounted on foam pads to the front page.
Once all the pages were completed the whole thing was bound together with a Bind-It-All machine.
