Hello again! Today I’m up on the Newton’s Nook blog sharing this simple but adorable card featuring Newton’s Book Club. I just adore this set because I’m not just a crafter, but a total book nerd too! This will be a fun card to send a book loving friend.
To make this card I started by stamping my image from Newton’s Book Club and coloring him in. I had an idea of the layout and now that he was colored, I pulled cardstock that coordinated with the colors I chose for the other elements of my card. I used the coordinating dies to cut my image out and started on the rest of my card.
The woodgrain paper gave great texture but the teal and red papers were too plain so I went over the red using my gingham stencil with red ink for a tone-on-tone look. I liked this much better. I adhered the teal to my card base and then die cut my red piece from the largest in the Frames & Flags die set and popped it up with foam tape.
For the next layer, I took a wood-grain patterned paper from my stash and die cut it with the rounded rectangle, also from the Frames & Flags die set, and then used the coordinating die from Newton’s Book Club to cut a window in it. This is when I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment. The woodgrain panel is popped up while the Newton image is glued inset. Kind of like Newton really is in the bookcase. 😉
For finishing touches I added white gel pen accents throughout the image and glossy accents to the spines of some of the books.
Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
