Also, wanted to share a card I recently completed. I haven't had much time for crafting these past two weeks, but what I did work on I really enjoyed. Once again, getting caught up in the creative process is such a great way to deal with stress.
This card was actually a request for a person who loves books. This was really fun, since I got to incorporate two things that I really love into one project, reading and card making. I actually borrowed the idea for this card from two sources. I recently saw a card on-line that incorporated a bookmark and I saw a beautiful handmade bookmark in a recent issue of Paper Craft, that's where I found the wonderful quote.
The idea for the magnets was all mine. It was the easiest way to secure the bookmark to the card, and it serves a double duty-- it also makes a beautiful magnet that can be displayed on the fridge as well!
The only problem I ran into was how to fit in a Birthday sentiment while not clashing with the bookmark quote. I thought about fitting it in on the front, but then felt there would be too much going on in the same space. Finally, I decided to include an inside greeting, tying it together with matching DP.
I hope you enjoy,
