Thought I'd do a quick post in between my DT's projects

You all know how much I love Graphic45 papers.  This is from their Steampunk collection and I just HAD to create something with it.  We actually did this card in class.  I've got their brains turning in every direction with the possibilities using this type of card.  So here goes my class rendition:

The outside...  a few dies thrown in (surprise, huh?  NOT!).  The long one on the left is by Sizzix and the spider web is by (who else) Memory Box!  I had some of that eyelash yarn in white and just went over it with Distress Paint, added a pretty black mesh bow along with the eyelash yarn and the little book was done!

The inside.  I added a few more spider webs and just cut up some of the G45 papers, including The Book of Spells, to add a little dimension and interest.  The frame inside the card allows you to tuck things (see middle bat).

This is a frame that you assemble and add on to the card.  I had taught a class 2 years ago with this same frame on a smaller scale with fish and seaweed and sea shells.  Think, birthday, wedding -- any occasion really.  It is such a fun card to make.  And of course I topped it all off with a bow made on the Craft-Dee BowZ.

Just thought you might enjoy something different!

Have a Bow-ti-ful day!
