I love this Bella. I have a friend who just got her masters in Library Science and she will most likely take over the librarian position in our high school next year. So I love to make cards for her and she loves to send lots of cards to her librarian friends. I was so excited when Emily announced this Bookwormabella, I had to have her right away.
To keep in the librarian theme, I stamped the background on the base card with a Stampin' Up! little alphabet background stamp. Background paper is from SU! too. Then I stamped the library pocket card image from SU! on white card stock then cut it out with a rectangle Spellbinder's Die Template. I love that image and use it tons. I think it looks really cute on this card with the scallop edges. Tied that with SU! stitched grosgrain ribbon then adhered it to the card front. Then for the main image, I colored the Bella with Copic Markers, using single solid colors then going back over the areas for a little shading.
I showed my friend and she loved it! She'll be wanting lots of cards with the Bookabella image and she even wants me to make her a few fun business cards with it too. Now that will be a challenge!
