Create a real page Turner! Interactive Open Book Card

21

Welcome back!

Today, Melanie Muenchinger is on the blog with a card and video that will turn more than just your head! She’s created this beautiful card and shows you how you can make one too!

From Melanie:

This latest Open Book design is so simple to recreate, and doubles or triples your pages to stamp on, thus expanding your greetings, image and technique possibilities for a card your recipient truly will FLIP for! (pardon the pun) I used Fabulous Rose Frame set to decorate the pages because the rose frame fills it so quickly and the different greeting options allow you to put different ones that will make sense on each spread that flows to the next.  Small bold images add pops of color.  You can add more coloring to the line art images if you like, which I will do , but today I mainly just wanted to show how to construct, stamp and anchor the turning page (two ways, so be sure to watch to the end!) Please enjoy!

Check out Melanie’s video HERE:

Enjoy today’s inspiration and Happy Stamping!

Hugs,

Gina K.

    This is such a adorable way to use the “Open Book” stamp – I love it. As you finished, I was thinking it would present just as nice to just attach the book to a flat (not card folded) piece of cardstock. I don’t have the stamp set, Yet……………

    I am happy to see this. I noticed another company has an open book that they had embellished quite a bit, my mind was going because I already have your stamp ! Melanie you are just a great artist . Thank you !
