This book is one I haven’t actually read. I do however have it on my to check out list right now since it also works for the reading challenge that I am working on right now. I tried to focus on the cover for the inspiration for this card. I actually made the card twice since I didn’t like how the white turned out on the first card and had to go buy a new white stamp pad.
Reading through some of my favorite blogs on Monday I saw a reference to a new challenge that honestly made me kind of giddy. I would imagine most people who know me know that I have a huge weakness for books and reading and this challenge marries that with my obsession with making cards. So when I heard about a library challenge that uses books for inspiration I have to join in! I have been super excited to make this card and get it posted.
There is something about the fact that a card only has a few elements that sometimes makes me work especially hard on those elements. This card I used a lot of different colors for just a few items on it. I wanted the books to really pop. I think sometimes it’s fun to do just that!
This didn’t start out as a get well card, but I was looking at the options for sentiments and it struck me that the pets looked like they were a bit sad and missing someone and all of a sudden this seemed like the reason why. I like that cards have a way of making their personality known as I am working on them.
This is one of my favorite cards! I love the reading couple, I love the statement, I picked my favorite color for the background!
