Elegant Easter Card (Bookspine Card)

I invested so much time in coloring some of my Magnolia's that i noticed last night... ups i don't really have anything to show today :-) So this card is a fast one :-)

Just stamped Baroque SU Backgrounder with Pretty in Pink ink onto Shimmery White CS (loooove this CS) and used my SU blender pen to add some shadows. The label was made with the retired set "Classic Labels" and the sentiment is from the set "All Holidays".

Altho this card looks kind of simple - it has "something" different, i have not showed this before on my blog. The way the ribbon is tied is called bookspine binding. You score your front panel about 0.5 inces into the card. Use your Cropadile to punch 2 holes through both layers vertically and thread the ribbon trough from the back - tie in the front. Finished. It does look really nice when you hold the card in your hand.

other than mentioned above:
CS used: Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Rhinestone Brads Making Memories, Chocolate Chip Grossgrain ribbon

I have a question for the ladies from Germany, Austria and maybe Switzerland. Have you seen the nw Scrap Art Zine Mag? The new issue should be on the market since 06.03.2008 and 8 of my cards are published. How did you like it? I have not seen how the Magazine looks like my mom can not find it to buy for me.

Thank you.

Hi Claudia,

wieder mal eine schöne Kreation von Dir! Schlicht aber elegant!

Wegen des Maganzins: Auf der HP von denen steht aber noch keine Ausgabe 03/2008! Wenn Du aber Genaueres wissen möchtest (z.B. wo man das Magazin bekommen kann etc.) kannst Du ja mal Andrea Gomoll anschreiben. Hier die EMail-Addy wie sie auf der HP steht:
andrea@scrap-art-zine.de
Ich hoffe Du kommst an ein Exemplar - viel Erfolg! :-)
