My first book card

     I wasn't sure that i would like this project or not, but after i got moving on it, i finally do. I had a really difficult time finding a tutorial that i liked and could work with. I finally just watched some youtube videos and gave it a shot. I used my new Stampendous rubber stamp that i won from the "Stamp Man" challenge about a month or so ago. It is called "St.NIck" I started coloring the image with my Copic markers and hated it, so i stamped it again and colored it with my Prismacolored pencils. I like the results much better now. I have this Awesome "Country Christmas" stack of paper from Hobby Lobby that i used on this project. I used the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder on the front of this card and sanded it. I really like white cored paper so that i can do this with it. I also used a Paper Studio snowflake border punch and a corner punch from Martha Stewart. I made the Pinecones with a flower punch that i had and added liquid applique. The base for the pinecones is a set of Spellbinders label dies.
