a good friend recently had a beautiful baby girl.
she is also a huuuuuuuuge jane austen fan.
i thought i would try and combine the 2
the cover of the album is a box made from thick brown card. i sponged ink all over it with soft suede, concord crush and river rock. i rolled the musical notes wheel over it and embossed with gold on the cover to help age it. i added some vintage lace and matching ribbon plus some pretty pink pearls.
Inside i added an accordion album made from kraft card with the lap of luxury dsp as a highlight.
the kraft has been rolled with the musical notes roller
and sponged with suede and river rock and concord crush.
i have to fess up that i originally loathed the l.o.l dsp
but since being on my vintage roll i am finding it very suitable for such things as it just 'fits'
....go figure huh?!
now just before putting the accordion album in,
i stuck some pink taffeta ribbon inside so it could tie up and not explode all over the place.
see how it all fits nicely into the box part?
here's a bit of detail from the front of the album.
i used vintage lace and the scallop edge punch with a hole punch out of it.
then i added a pink bow and a tiny paper flower i had coloured in with a tiny pearl in the middle.
hope the recipient likes it
