Floral Tapestry Mini Book
This mini book was created using Tim Holtz's Movers & Shapers Baroque Die with the magnetic 1/4" punches. I started by positioning two of the holes on the die for my binder rings then ran it through my Big Shot using Sizzix Cream Mat Board. This mat board works great for binder covers.
I decorated the front and back covers using The Paper Company Spring Floral Tapestry Designer Paper. The frame was stamped on Shimmery White paper in VersaMark with Elegant Eggplant ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
The sentiment from the Elements of Style set was inked in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder and a heat gun. All the flowers from SU's Vintage Vogue set were also stamped in Elegant Eggplant and embossed.
I sponged the frame, flowers and flourish with VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria and added Kaiser Pearls in Lavender.
The inside of the mini book was completed in brushed silver.
A closer look at the flowers.
