Rejoice (Easel Book Card)

 Hey Everybody,

Hope you all are having a super Sunday!

This card was so much fun to make, I could hardly contain myself while working on it.  I got the idea while searching for some inspiration, and ran across something called "Bookatrix".  I'm sure many of you have heard of it, but it was new to me.  If you haven't, just google and you'll see some amazing works of art!  Now I didn't want to make something as big as what I was seeing, so I made my own pattern and created an easel card.

The stamp is by Di's Digital Designs, called Fairy Beary Hugs, and I colored her and Fairy Beary with my ProMarkers.  Isn't it just precious?  The beautiful scripture is from Daydream Designs, and is from the "Dream Team Scripture Set 3".  I thought it was just perfect for this image.

No matter which angle I took my photo, I could not get the Cone Flower to show the way it really appears, but in short I drew a simple design and used A/C duct tape and then traced around the edges to give it a embossed effect as my embellishment.

Other Mediums:
Trim; Border Peel Offs by Mark Richards
Glitter by Creatology
Pearl Stickers and Ribbon from Michaels
Paper by K&Company

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.

Judy, I have never seen one of these and it is oh, so lovely. Beautiful job.

Marianne said...

Judy your card is really adorable! It really looks like a book...will have to try that sometime. What I can't get over is your colouring, her hair and dress are really well done. By the way I've never heard of Booktrix so you just keep posting this stuff that is new to you because it will more than likely be new to others as well. TFS.

Diane said...

This is amazing, Judy! Love all you little extra touches of creativity. This is a beautiful design...and so gorgeously embellished. Love the way you showcased the scripture. It does go perfectly.

Debbie said...

This is so pretty!! I love easel cards and this is so neat book shaped! Love that flower!!

NanaConnie said...

This is beautiful, Judy! Love that precious image and your coloring is just wonderful, especially on her hair. I'm just tickled to pieces to see you playing in the challenges at Tuesday Throwdown! Good luck in the draw.

It's new to me as well, and I'll check it out. Lovely card, soft greens, cut image and I really do like the shape & the trims used. Scripture verse is always a timely one, and I 'think' I may have it on some clear. Gotta check...need to use it. TFS
