Don't forget to enter at The Cuttlebug Spot and please go and see what my teammembers have made for this weeks challenge!
I never made one before and was dying to make one!! I loved making it every step of the way!!
This is the receipe:
One 5 1/2" x 12" piece of Cardstock,Scor-Pal, Paper Cutter,Patterned Paper, Bone Folder,(Craft Knife),Adhesive .
Step 1 Place 5 ½” x 12" piece of cardstock horizontally in your Scor-Pal. Score at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”.
Step 2 Turn cardstock a ¼ turn. Along the long edge, measure in 1 ½” . Make a slit with a craft knife or your papercutter between the score marks at 2” and 10”. Repeat on the other long side.
And now the fun part!!
Using your favorite pattern paper or special themed paper, measure each sectionand adhere to card,finally-Embellish & decorate.
This is what I made! I used my favorite colors again (like in inspired by a magazine add) Pink & Grey!!
I put in a lot of little details! Ofcourse I have used lovely drawings from my Sponsor Digiscrapkits.com
I even put in a sonnet by Shakespeare, was inspired by one of my favorite movies : Sense & Sensibilities with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet. Kate is playing one of the sisters, Marianne who loves to read Shakespeare and one of her favorite sonnets is number 116 and when she meets the love of her life Willoughby, he reads her his favorite sonnet, number 116, without knowing....it is soooooo romantic!
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved"
