Bella Bleu B-Side book
So, I finished the card below and then inspiration struck again for this little book using the B-Side to the Bella Bleu papers.
The inside is 3 pieces of 10cm x 20cm Kraft cardstock, scored at 5cm and 15cm. These 5cm flaps are stuck together to make the 'pages'. A front Kraft card cover measuring 10cm x 28cm, scored at 7cm, 9cm, 19cm and 21 cm. The 2cm strips form the 'spines' of the book.
The book was decorated using Barely Banana cardstock, Kraft cardstock and Bella Bleu papers. The centre panel has more of the daisy flowers and faux stritched stems on it. I stamped a couple of labels with sentiments using one of the stamps from the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels set. Some So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon ties the book together. I put another flower with faux stitched stems on the front.
Took me all afternoon - had to have a lie down afterwards!!
