Anniversary Book Card


Some friends of mine just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, and I thought that Papertrey Ink's new Book Cover Card Die could be used to make the perfect card for them!  I decorated the front with the "Happily" die that is included in the set, but the sentiments and the swirly stamps on the spine are from the PTI Book Cover Details stamp set.  I also added a pretty little flower made with PTI's Bitty Bouquets stamps and dies.  Then I thought it would be fun to stamp my friends' last name on the spine.  Since it didn't come out straight on my first try, I stamped it again on a little die cut made with PTI's Angled Label Dies.  The stamps I used were from My Creative Time's Alpha Pack.


On the inside I made a little library pocket and card with dies from the Book Cover Card set, stamping the card with a sentiment from PTI's Daily Designs Sentiments and a flower from MCT's The Sky is the Limit.  One last Bitty Bouquet flower finished it off!
