Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Card Art with Copics: Crafty Sentiments Annabel Baby Stroll

Crafty Sentiments carries a sweet line of rubber, clear and digital images that can be used on current day projects to share loving thoughts and wishes.  I've used a rubberstamp image named Annabel Baby Stroll on a gift card for a baby boy.

This view shows my Copic-filled image.  I've used the "Beyond the Edge" technique with Spellbinders Labels One to shape my image.

Layers of Bazzill pastel-colored cardstock are bordered with faux stitching and Best Creation's Sweet Baby glitter double-sided patterned paper to form my card.  Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels One shape the "flip" of my easel card.  Stampendous Class A'Peels Victorian Borders Silver stickers fill my corners.
The "New Baby" text from a set that came with a Cardmaking magazine is topped with an Offray 1/8" mini dot bright yellow ribbon bow.
A Prima's pearl centered blue layered daisy, Recollections dark blue Mulberry Paper Roses and small light blue roses are set above a few McGill pine branch punches.  I've lightly coated each flower with Diamond Stickles for glittery sparkle.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing Crafty Sentiments Annabel Baby Stroll . . .

The inside includes one of my favorite stamped sentiments from Rubber Cottage called "Every Child" . . .

Here's a view of my flip-easel card, open and ready for display . . .

This view shows how the flipped shape leaves an opening in the back of the card when it is folded as an easel for display . . .
