Good morning everyone, well not long to wait until Tonic Studios Launch of the Memory Book Keeper Die Sets ,launching this morning at 10am on Hochanda, last night I shared a step by step tutorial with you on how the albums go together so this morning I would like to share a card I created with the die sets.
The very second I saw these die sets my mind went into overdrive and they screamed at me to create a book on an easel so I went with it .
The book was created using the Memory book Keeper Die set and also the Floral Affections die set with the easel die,also the flowers are from Kit 5 and the sentiment just to say from our collection of fabulous sentiments.
The book was created by cutting the second largest die in the set in white base card stock something that will hold it's shape 300gsm card was used for this card.
The next layer down with the beautiful lacy edge was cut in Craft perfect Kraft card stock, to shape the pages i used an empty tin foil roll but could easily use the edge of your desk or a rolling pin just to give the book real shape.
You then need to cut a smaller page in white put all the pieces of card on a score board and make a centre spine for your book.
Stick the two largest layers together using red liner tape or wet glue like the deluxe adhesive and then wrap a length of ribbon around the spine of the smallest layer and stick this to the book.
The flowers are cut from Kit 5 in Bright White craft perfect card stock and then coloured with spun sugar Distress ink then shaped with a ball tool onto a sponge mat the leaves are cut from pistachio craft perfect then the edges of the pages were distressed with vintage photo distressed inks and the flowers were arranged on the opposite page you need to cut the sentiment in craft perfect Harvest Gold Mirror Card and Craft perfect Black glue together slightly off set to create a shadow effect then to finish add a matching tipple bow and add a button for embellishment.
The easel was cut in 300gsm white card and the detail added in craft perfect Kraft card from the Floral Affections die set collection.
This is the die set that created the book
