Old Fart

Yes, that is the title of my post and it is also the sentiment on this word book card! By special request too! The customer asks and the customer gets! It also fits in with the current Creative Inspirations challenge which is:

Anything But Square or Rectangle

Each letter is a page which opens out creating a book. I've used papers from Funky Hand - Girls and Boys which was created as part of a charity cd so was not available to purchase singularly.

Each letter has been printed out using Word Art and then layered onto the pages with a fine black doodled line just inside the letters. I've added other embellishments and eyelets to the large letters and have used snaps from W R Memory Keepers to hold it all together. The smaller letters have been cut and then layered onto black card using my Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet die.

Lets hope the recipient sees the funny side!

  • Papers: Girls and Boys from Funky Hand
  • Dies: Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet dies
  • Snaps: W R Memory Keepers
  • Everything else: My stash
