Yippee Ki - Yay ( book Card )

Good Thursday morning everyone

It is a great morning here get to see the sun (wow) don't get to see it to much so that feels awesome. Well I made a new kinda card and I LOVE IT... it is new to

A book card , I found this paper a Michael's on clearance and loved it so I decided to make my granddaughter Lily a Birthday card with it and let me tell you I am SUPER excited at how it turned out ....

Card recipe

1. brown card stock for the book cut @ 11 5/8 ins x 7 ins and scored @ 5 1/2 ins turn and score again @ 5 1/2 ins this make your book .

2. pink card stock cut @5 3/8 ins x 6 3/4

3. your paper cut @ 5 1/4 x 6 5/8 the little strip for the binding i just eyed the paper and cut it to fit...Used stickers from my stash for her name Lily on the binding and the colors didn't show very well in the pic but the binding is pink ...sun was on it so it washed it out...

4. Brads for the binding put them in before you put the inside paper on this way it hides the back of them.

5. I cut out some of the images from the paper and pop dotted them to make them 3D.

6. Yippee Ki - yay I printed from the computer I used word then used Spellbinders cut , embossed , inked and pop dotted....

7. Cut a piece of card stock 4 x 2 3/4 score @ 1/2 in on 3 sides cut the 2 bottom corners diagonal so it will fold correctly to make a small pocket to put money or gift card in .cut half circle with 1in circle punch sewed around it...

8. Cricut cart paper doll dress up for the cowgirl cut @ 5 ins used google eyes and added stars and ribbon to her..inked

9. Cricut cart picturesque for the corners cut @ 1in

10. found this cute cowgirl poem on line and printed the saying!

The Iron Cowgirl

She's strong willed and independent. She's as beautiful inside as she is outside.

She'll never take no for an answer ; and when she's told she can't do it because she is a girl, she'll prove you wrong every time. She loves the thrill of the ride, and the romance of adventure. She's you and she's me. But most of all .... she just is

Long live the iron cowgirl.
