Magnolia bookcard

It's my grandmothers 85th birthday, and here's the card I made for her. Since it's a bookcard, it also has the function of being a giftwrapper for earrings and necklace :)

The paper with the gothic writing is from an old book from 1883. It hurts a bit every time I tear one of the pages... :)

The letters and numbers are made out of 3 layers glued on top of eachother. The edges are distressed with walnut stain, and I've put on crackle accents on them. I really wanted a 3D-effect on them :)

6" x 5"
Kraft and vanilla
Pion Design

  7. Jag förstår att det gör ont att riva i sådant papper, jag skulle nog aldrig våga utan bara spara, spara =).
