Little Readers with Pippa Price

Do you like to read, or have a loved one who does? If so, our December Guest Designer, Pippa Price, has a project to share today that you're really going to love! Using elements from the "Little Readers" digi set, Pippa made a darling pair of cards. But these aren't just cards. Take a peek!

For the first card, Pippa colored up the little girl image from the set using alcohol markers. Isn't her coloring just stellar? The yellow, lime, and aqua color combination she used is darling, too. (Might have to case that for a future set -- hee hee!) Pippa printed and colored a second image of the book the little girl is holding, and then trimmed the base image so that she could slide the book into her hands. What a fun effect! She matted the image quite elegantly, using a piece cut from the Nouveau Stamping Frame die by Die'sire.

Pippa followed the same basic design for her second card, but used one of the pre-colored boy images from the "Little Readers" set. This really shows how you can create equally wonderful cards whether you like to color the images yourself or not.

Now you'll notice that the back piece of each card is wider than the front. That's because the end piece of it is scored at 6cm from the end so that the recipient can zip it right off and use it as a bookmark. How clever is that? These would make great little gifts from a teacher to her students, or from a child to their classmates, don't you think?

To read more about how Pippa made this darling set of cards/bookmarks, or to see her other wonderful creations, please visit her blog -- "Views from the Craft Room." Of course, we'll also be back next Wednesday with another of her projects, so be sure to visit then! :-)
