Hello! It’s Kari here today with a book project using supplies from the January 2021 kit. This kit is filled with book images and sentiments that are so beautiful.

Today I have a quick video sharing a quick look at the kit and the instructions for making this card. Watch it below or in HD on YouTube:

I just fell in love with this book image that has flowers coming out of the top. I stamped it up on a darker cardstock (desert storm) and colored it in with prismacolor pencils. I found that the lighter pencils look really great on this cardstock.

“We lose ourselves in books, we find ourselves there too.” I adore that sentiment!

I used clear embossing ink to stamp the stacked book image all over the background. This adds a bit of interest. I didn’t bother to mask the larger book image at all, because I found this was so light it really wasn’t needed. (yay!) Then I inked around the edges of the card panel.
