Butterflies and Flowers Fauxbook Card

Spring is in the air here today in my little corner.

I was inspired by this new digi from Sherri Baldy My Besties
to create a fun spring themed card.
This is Ella Bella Buttons and Bows Garden Treasure Hunter.
You can find her HERE

I wanted to be able to tuck some pretty flowers and butterflies into this
and decided to make a faux book to hold the goodies.
I trimmed the book part with a Martha Stewart border punch
to cover the frame.

I also wanted to be able to tuck in a few little trinkets, like a book mark 
and a gift card, so I made a pocket to add these.
I trimmed the top of the pocket with a Martha Stewart border punch.

The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations Stamp and Die set, Botanical Rose.
You can find it HERE

I started with a 7" x 11" base cardstock and scored at 5" and 6"
giving me a front and back panel of 5" x 7" with a 1" spine.

For my frame I cut 2- 6 1/2" long by 3" wide strips and scored at every 1/2", then
2- 4 1/2" by 3" and scored also at every 1/2".
This is the base for the frame. Trim out the top with lace or whatever
to give it a more finished look.

Finish off with all your embelishments and enjoy.

For the color combos for Ella Bella.
Skin is E000, 00, 53 Cheeks RV10, 00
The rest is carried throughout below.
