This is a card for the CD Sunday Challenge Blog
The theme this week was Dreams and Dragons so I made this card
I used Jems Designs Dragons Realm as I loved the idea of the card looking like a very aged book.
So make this I printed off the book front, back and insert for dragon number 4, but I decided to make this a small card so its just A6 in size
I cut out the front and back then used my Silent Setter to make holes and also add the eyelets to the left side
I used brown and a cream fibre as I love the messy fluffy look
The insert was a problem as it was the traditional style so I folded in half, stuck inside the book and trimmed so it was the same as my book – when it was opened it had worked out quite well
I decided to add a simple stamped sentiment and the one I used fitted perfectly – stupidly – and lazily I must add – I stuck the clear stamp onto the back of a block that already had a stamp on so I inked it up then stamped where I believed was the centre – WRONG!!!
Lesson learnt – don't be lazy next time, get another block or remove the existing stamp for a few minutes!!!
There wasn't much I could do to embellish this card so I added thick pva then glitter to what was the tape holding the dragon photo
Again had I not been so lazy I should have got out all my brads as I feel sure I have a dragon shaped one as well as a hatching egg
Another lesson learnt on the perils of being lazy!!
So that's my DRAGON card
Hope you like it
Till the next card....
