Second Book Card, Paperartsy style

  yay its Friday, I know the sun isn't shining but it means a lie in tomorrow and maybe a cuppa in bed if I am lucky! Popping in quickly to share a card made a few weeks ago (still on catch up with posting LOL).

I loved the Tina Wenke book card so much I decided to make another but loved the idea of combining it with a 'recessed aperture card' made into a book card and haven't seen this combination anywhere else, so thought well why wouldn't it work??

Here is the aperture centre, decorated with the same papers as the front and back.

and another view showing the left hand side inner cover with a tag ready for a message

Here is the view of the 'book' shape, those spellbinders fancy tags are just THE best addition to the spine of the book, oh I love those dies!!

and finally from the front:

The aperture inside is deep enough to hold a folded tie, maybe a pen set or other small gift or for a guy as a bedside coin box... uses are endless for this and its a 5'' x 7'' size which is just about right - oh and the round things are the new card candi from Craftwork cards.
