Serenity Book Card

I will be so sorry to see the Serenity paper collection retire at the end of December. This collection has become one of my all-time favourites.

This is a book card - it opens to look very much like a book. I stayed with the blue and gold theme in the Serenity collection as it worked perfectly for what I wanted. 

The wreath on the front actually has little sections that are raised. The wreath shape was die cut and then stamped in three colours and adhered to a solid colour on the back. A glitter bow was also die cut and added to the wreath after the leaves were lifted. 

Inside there are two layers on top of the cardstock base along the sides - some Blue Belle glitter paper and then the patterned flowers. The main panels were stamped and coloured and sections of the flowers were brushed with the Gold Shimmer Brush. I stamped some images on the back panel where the message will be written to the recipient. No embellishments were added to this card as it is already thick on the inside.
