Peony Book card






This is the first time I've made one of these book cards and it was great fun. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it but took a little while fiddling about to get the sizes right.This one is quite small - 11cm x 12.5cm x 2cm but although it works well with the dies and stamps I've used, I think I'll be making the next one bigger.
I've made this one to show how all the different elements of the Pick of the Bunch range by Tonic Studios can be used together to complement  each other..... 
On the front of the card you can see how I've used the Peony Window die with the coordinating topper stamp .

The big flower inside the card is the main stamp from the Peony set  and I've used the topper stamp again on the bottom left. The border around the "pages" was made with the Dotty Border punch and I've used some diecut leaves in gingham from the Window Basket die set. The butterflies are made with the Classic Butterfly punch.

On the inside left of the card I have added a little pocket with a tag inside and the image on it is the Peony bud.



Just for a little "extra" on the back cover, I've stamped, coloured and cut out the little snail from the same stamp set.



This is just one of the ways I envisaged the Pick of the Bunch set working together when I designed it  - look out for more ideas on the blog soon.

    1. Thanks, Karen. I'll add instructions when I make a bigger one. This was really trial and error so I didn't take photos as I made it.
