Cuttlebug Spot - Inspired by a Book

Tuesday, 4 January 2011

Happy New Year to you all, hope you saw the New Year in, in style. We spent the evening with friends and just chatted and chatted. It was lovely and relaxing after a busy Christmas.

Welcome back to the Cuttlebug Spot and to our new challenges for 2011. This month you will see projects inspired by books, games, songs and adverts. This week, it's a book. I found this hard, because even though I read, I love supernatural and horror stories, which don't always make a nice cards!! So I went for James Bond and Diamonds are Forever. This was one of the 1st films I ever saw at the cinema along with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I translated the book into a wedding card for my 2nd cousin who is getting married later this year.

Inspired by a Book
Materials used - White A6 card blank, Cricut plus Wild Card, Cuttlebug plus Sizzix Lovely Flourish embossing plate, White, silver and gold cardstock, Yellow patterned paper, Ribbon, Gems, Making Memories rub-ons and Glitter.
