Cupcake Craft Challenge (24)

This week's challenge at Cupcake Craft is 3,2,1, (3 card, 2 embellishments and 1 ribbon). I think this card has a few more than that ha!ha!

I made this Bookatrix card for a friend to give her daughter tomorrow, I hope she likes it.

First I embossed and cut out the two largest pages using the Bookatrix embossing board from the Glitter Girls (one of my favourites). I then printed the verse onto a sheet of parchment and heat embossed it in silver while the ink was still wet. I then embossed and cut it out as above. I added peeloff borders and corners to these. The six-sided (forgotten what it's called) behind the flowers was embossed etc. using their Majestic board. I made the bouquets and stuck them on using silicone glue and added vellum butterflies. Having added the organza ribbon I made a matching box and a little stand.
