Last but not least!

The final card is a another version of an easel card that I saw
on TV being used for something entirely different.
I liked the concept so decided to try it with the MME papers.
I think I might be making more of these..

I have used the MME Lost and found Christmas kit, brads and stamps.
I have also used Spellbinder nestabilities Classic round and Classic round scalloped.
The Martha Stewart punch is Dollie lace.
The inks I have used are Distress Vintage photo and StazOn Timber brown.
I have also used a bit of bling and Stickles red glitter.

To make the card I have used a piece of card 29 x 15 cm's
folded and scored at 7 plus 7 1/2 cm's each side. 
This makes the book shape as per the first photo.
The second piece of card is 13 1/2 x 18 1/2 cm's with a fold at 2 1/2 cm's from the top.
This flap is then attached to the top centre inside of the card.
This will appear longer when the book is all shut but it is so the card will stand.
All that is left now is to decorate it as little or as much as you like.

So folks that is what we did at Elgin.
I do hope you enjoyed it.

I'm having this weekend off with my boys.
"And chillaxe!"

Then it starts all again next week in preparation for my demo at
HobbyCraft in Aberdeen
on Saturday 17th of September 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.

Happy crafting.
