Book card

Well here we are in a wet and windy Leicester 

Today I wanted to share a new project from me, this is the first attempt at
making one and it hasn't turned out too bad.


I watched a video tutorial on You Tube explaining how to make this and just
added bits as I went along. This is the front of the card and I love
anything Disney so I just had to have Dopey on the front


Here you can see the inside of the card, it can also be used to store
little keepsakes 


This is the side of the card which is fastened by the ribbon
Hope you like it

Thank you for stopping by and looking and any comments you
are kind enough to leave are greatly appreciated xx Janis xx

Mum

Well it's another beautiful day, the sun is shining but it's a bit fresh out there.
The card today is a very easy one to make BUT it caused me so many problems and it took me ages to make it. The centre piece with Mum had to be scrapped 4 times as the ink kept on bleeding and then on the 5th attempt I actually ripped the whole topper so had to start again. Hopefully you like it now I finally got to finish it Lol x
