Classy Cards Novel Friends

Since so many of my friends were English majors and book lovers I had to get this Impression Obsession Bookshelves CAC stamp.  The MFT Books stamp set has some wonderful sayings and coordinates perfectly. The Claudette Frame is from Poppystamps.  It makes such a lovely delicate frame.  This is a 5" x 5" card to give you an idea of the size.

I was able to make a few of these cards in a snap.  The cover a card background stamp was stamped once using disress ink and cut with a Spellbinders Classic Square Small die.  The background stamp is so large that I was able to cut out four squares out of the Bookshelves image.  The two gray card stock layers were cut to fit with my paper cutter.

I sponged the edges of the bookshelves with distress ink.  To create the sentiment tag, I stamped the saying and centered the Grommet Tag die over it before cutting.  Then I used the grommet die as a  stencil and sponged distress ink over it.  I used gray pearls on the tag to pick up the color of the gray card stock layers.  Thanks for looking!
