Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Hello, fellow crafters!  Today's card was made for a friend who loves to read. She also loves wine and chocolates. And her birthday happens to fall on Valentine's Day. How lucky can you get??? So I decided to make her this birthday "book pop-up" card with all this in mind.

The base card was made with GKD white card stock and layered with some lightly patterned green paper that I had in my stash.The card front or focal panel was embossed with a Creative Expressions Textured Linen folder. The book worm was created using small circle die cuts in light green card stock. I added brads for the eyes. The glasses were cut from an Impression Obsession Retro Masculine die set.The book was hand created and the book title was self composed and computer generated on pink cardstock. The hands holding the book were created with small floral die cuts, cut in half to show only 3 "fingers" and then  adhered to the book. The sentiment was computer generated and then cut into a banner and matted with green patterned paper.

Here's a photo of the inside of the card.

 I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for visiting my blog and please come again.
 Until next time, happy crafting!
