Today I thought I'd share another card I made with Papertrey's new Bibliophile stamps and dies. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm not loving this one. I wanted to share it anyway, though, to show you the idea of adding that linen napkin under the teacup, which I made with the new Embroidered Frames: Dots dies.
But first, the books are stamped and die-cut with Bibliophile stamps and Bibliophile dies. I love the look of the stacked books, and how you can incorporate your sentiment into the book spines. Just so darn cute and clever! There's actually another line to the sentiment that I chose to omit. The full sentiment is "Relax, may you feel better with the turning of every page."
The Fancy Teacup die is gorgeous. I lightly sponged the solid background layer in Aqua Mist ink and the more intricate top layer in Harvest Gold ink. I added a strip of Pure Poppy card stock behind the little circles, too.
For the napkin, I die-cut the smaller rectangle from the Embroidered Frames: Dots die set out of Fresh Snow linen card stock, leaving the middle part inside the frame and securing with a little tape on the back. I arranged it at the angle I wanted, then trimmed off the top and right before layering it over the book stack.
I think what's bugging me about this card is that it feels like it should have more of a vintage, flowery tea party look. This looks like a circus :) I look forward to giving it another go in a totally different style!
Enjoy your weekend!
