Make It Monday #59

How often have you thought you just had to have a book and rarely use it. Well this card came from one of those books. The book is called Interactive Cards and is made by Annie's Attic.  It is a hinged card and I love the idea.  All the paper used is from Paper Temptress.  The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and is Cryogen White. The image is also cut from the Cryogen White. The bottom piece is 4 1/4 x 3/1/4 and is the beautful Violet Mica/ Metallic. The gigham stamp is from the Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card Background stamp series. Also used the small Dots from the same line to do the dots on the top piece. I love these stamps because when you have a beautiful cardstock base I can make all sorts of background paper to match whatever project I am doing. The top dotted piece measures 4 1/4 x 2 1/2. The decorative border is a Martha Stewart punch and I used White Crepe Ruche for a little texture. The bottom piece is only glued to the base at the bottom and about 2 inches up each side. The top piece actually slides under decorative border that was attached to the bottom piece. The brad is attached to the side through all 4 layers. The image I used is from Lockhart Stamp Company. I love coloring these images because they are small and give a nice pop to your card.
