Another Index Card for a friend...

Hello fellow crafters - hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.  Its much too cold in the North East of the UK to be outside so I am playing in my craft room this afternoon.  Here's another Index Card or Skinny I made recently for a friend.  So pleased to be introduced to these by Astrid and really enjoyed making the cover for it too.

My favourite "Jane" stamp again from Oxford Impressions together with a French script stamp and a bullrush stencil with some texture paste pressed through.  I sprayed the whole thing with the gorgeous Walnut Gold glimmer mist although the sheen doesn't show up too well on the pic.  I then added the butterfly, the handmade flower and the very appropriate sentiment for my friend.  She doesn't exactly have a library but does love her books and plants!

The cover was done with the lovely Prima Romance papers and finished with some peachy seam binding to tie the whole thing together.

This is the folded holder all fastened up and ready to send

Thanks for calling in to see me today.  Hope you manage to get some crafty time in yourselves over the weekend.   Margie xx


  1. This is pretty as can be and I have to say that she is my favourite Jane from that set.

  2. I love your ICAD and folder, Margie! So, beautiful. The quote is one of my favorites! I love books and gardens!

  3. When I saw the delicious make you made for Astrid's swap Margie (swap here) I put these stamps on my wish list.

    Now I want them even more after seeing this beautiful creation.

  4. This is absolutely beautiful Margie. Love the way you have layered the texture paste over the script and kept the colours muted and vintage. Jenny x
