I know you love to craft or you wouldn't be here reading this blog. Sometimes you might not feel so inspired to create. To get my crafty mojo in gear I usually look on line for different challenges to play. You can find so many different card challenges to play - sketch challenges where the layout is already decided for you, color challenges, challenges by theme, challenges inspired by photos, and how about his one from The Library Challenge?
No you don't have to read the book. You're asked to create based on the slip cover, the story or even the title. Here's what I made...
I was smitten with the clean graphic design of the cover. It's the same reason I love die cuts.. the crisp clean lines and the contrast you can achieve using them.
I cut the Peaceful Dove die from orange card stock and then a second time from charcoal card stock. I trimmed the orange panel and then layered it over a black card stock panel.
I added a white die cut Believe Loose Script Sentiment to mimic the white title on the book.
The sun was created cutting circles in various shades of yellow and stacking them on top of each other.
I adhered the sun in a similar position as the book cover.
Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"
