A Birthday Book Card

Hello everyone!

A close friend of mine turned 50 in September and I decided to make one of her favourite cards, a book card! I had a LOT of fun making this card and I had her in mind the whole time :) She loves birds and butterflies so that was a given to use on this card.

Here's my card! I have used Marianne Design Clock die, Lalaland Heart banner die and Magnolia Heart Tag die for this card. The dove die-cut is made with a MemoryBox die and the leaves under the flowers are also made with a MemoryBox die. 

The paper I used is from Maja Design Sofiero Collection. The butterflies are made of Martha Stewart Clay and molds and inked with Inka Gold Silver and chalked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

I bought a new stamp set that I have been craving for for a LONG while now and I am SO in love! It's Stempelglede Vintage Garden stamp set with lovely dotty swirls and they are just gorgeous for making that little extra on the stamped image! I actually fell so much in love with it I had to stamp it all over LOL! 

This is my coloured image by Mayzyart, this particular stamp is called "Looks like rain Xandra". I coloured her with Copics and used the following combinations:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20.
Dress and gloves Green: G99, YG67, YG63,YG11, YG000 Pink: R89, R85, R83, R81
Umbrella Green: YG67, YG63, YG11, YG000 Pink: R85, R83, R81
Posca pen for white dots.

This is the inside! I used a new die from Cottage Cutz (my new favourite brand of dies!) in the shape of a Champagne glass and inked the paper with Inka Gold Old Silver to make it shimmer. I also used the Memorybox Dove die. I also used a new Spellbinder die I bought this summer from Stamps Alive! called Lucious Labels One to make the frame for greetings.

To the right inside the book card, I have made a little plate with a stamp and clay, inked it with Distress Ink and Inka Gold Old silver (on the edges) and put a bird made of clay on it. The sentiment goes something like this:

"Friends are the wings that lifts your feet when your own wings have forgotten how to fly"

That's all I had to show you today! 
Happy crafting!

xoxo Madeleine
