Christmas Word Book

Here is a Christmas card that I made for a recent order. I do like making word books - they are relatively easy to make and fairly quick unless I decide to layer up the letters as I've done here and then cut them out!

All the papers are from Funky Hand - Twelve Crafters Crafting cd and I've used Wordart to create the actually word Happy. Each letter has been printed onto a pale colour from the colour palette and then layered onto a contrasting colour then added to each 'page' of the book.

I've glittered around the inside of each of the letters plus also the smaller Christmas word (cut with my Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet dies). The ribbons are from my stash and hold all pages together - well, actually, the glue does that, but you know what I mean!
