|I Like Big Books,,,|
Adam likes reading almost as much as I do so I thought he'd like this CAS card featuring this cute bookworm stamp from Clearly Besotted Stamps (Bookworm Additions) it has a matching die but I decided to fussy cut it out. The balloon diecut was made using a die that came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. The books that "Bookie" is standing on were from the Simply Gorguss stamp "New Heights" and I inked the books and wiped off any ink that got on the girl part of the stamp. All the elements of the image were coloured in using Flexmarkers. I wrapped some baker's twine around the knot of the balloon and tied it to Bookie's tail.
I really like this card, it was quite fiddly doing the books but well worth the effort (I stamped it a couple of times because although the stamp looked clean it left traces on the first attempt). The Bookworm Additions have some long flags included with funny book related sentiments (Get lost! In a good book... for example) but I couldn't work out where to place one on this card so I left the outside sentiment free.
