Daring Card Makers - Getting To Know You

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and this week the theme is

Getting To Know You

So, what is your style or your favourite crafting technique?  I love making word books and turn to them time and time again and I do get asked to make them quite a lot!

Here is one I've made using a now retired and unavailable Funky Hand cd - all the pages can be printed and then made into a word.  I've just cut the 'pages' to size, layered the letters onto black card for extra depth and then added to the pages with foam pads and for a bit extra detail, added a faux stitched line around the edge.

Embroidery thread added to the bound edge and the Happy Birthday sentiment cut with a Cuttlebug die and added to a strip of acetate.  Actually quite quick to make and look great!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Alphabet Challenge:  Y is for Your Choice
Crafty Catz:  Layer It Up
Aud Sentiments:  Anything Goes with a Sentiment
CCEE Stampers:  Die Cut Words
Time Out Challenges:  Bold
