So here is my inspiration piece for you all to get some lovely ideas from
For this piece I decided to do something a little different, that I have not done for a while a bookatrix card with matching stand.
I first started out by picking my image and printing it out, I then started to colour my image in using my promarkers, the colours I have used are:
Baby Pink, Dusky Rose, Oatmeal, Blush, Cocoa and Burnt Umber
Once it was all coloured in I then cut out my image and put it to one side for later, Now I needed to make the bookatrix, I did this by using a Glitter Girls bookatrix embossing board.
I picked my two pieces of card, and used them on the embossing board to emboss the outline of the bookatrix pages, once I had done this I then cut them out, now they are both cut out I decorated the edges with some peel off border stickers after I rolled the pieces back on themselves so it gave them a curved book look, and folded on the score lines to make the centre of the bookatrix, I did this with both pieces of card I then glued them one on top of the other.
Now all this was done I added my image to the right hand side by gluing it in position, Now I could concentrate on the left hand side of the bookatrix, so I used some sizzix die cuts one for the baby rattle and one for the baby bottle, once I had done these using my Big Shot, I placed them to one side and again used some peel off stickers one which reads New Baby and the others which read Congratulations and another that says A Baby Girl, I stuck these into position now they were in position I then glued the rattle and the bottle into position. (The rattle top I have left blank for a reason, so that the baby’s weight or d.o.b can be added along with the time baby was born)
I added some diamantes onto the die cut rattle and some ribbon to the centre of the bookatrix, and with the same ribbon I made a bow which I fixed a small chain to and added some lovely baby charms, the charms I added to this piece are a baby bottle, birth certificate, dummy, and a pram. The bow with charms I fixed to the ribbon in the centre of the bookatrix.
Lastly I made a stand to match the bookatrix, so I used the same pink spotted card which is on the bookatrix for the stand, I did this by using my stand template to draw around twice cut both out and then glued them both together I then folded them in half to make the stand.
So there we have a beautiful pink bookatrix keepsake card all finished with an added extra of baby charms,
I hope this piece gives you lots of inspiration and you have alot of fun with your challenge entry I look forward to seeing them all
