Was asked to create a card for my friends mom for her friend's anniversary. Ok, a card. Simple right? Not! The ideas went through stages - simple card -> interactive card -> faux book card -> book -> and finally end up as a mini album. Not just a mini album but a vintage mini album.
Then I remembered that their anniversary is on halloween so I had to make it thematic. It all centers around Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, which represents the anniversary couple. I use pictures from the move to tell a story in this little album. Awwww, Janice, you're so extra.
Ok. enough chit chat. Let's get to the nitty-gritty. You can watch the video and/or peruse the pictures below.
I tried to make a burial ground. It has a plaque with the scroll saying "Our guests never complain." I added a chain for texture and realty.
Above you'll find a wand, which is needed to cast a spell. The worn paper tells the story of the corpse bride. I took poetic license to add a little this and that to the story. Hahahaha.
The tree on the right was printed out, fussy cut, and glittered. I can find anything. Web surfing queen if I do say so myself. Oh! I just did.
I disassemble a mini skeleton to add to the page. I found it at the dollar store. What don't they have.
Glittered a die cut. Another tree I had to fussy cut. Time consuming......
Moon is vellum and fussy cut and glittered my bat printouts. Just loving the eyes.
Here is a fabric flower with an embossed flower punch. Adjacent is another die cut I glittered.
I created these documents and printed them out. I added the couple's names and their spooky friends.
On the right is another digital print I made.
Created the Ouija board and planchette. Made the planchette dimensional with pearl feet. Had to be realistic. C'mon. LOL.
I made the back very simple with a digital print and used a brad as a decorative element.
The album was housed in this box I created out of cardstock.
Well, that's all folks. What do you think? How can I improve on it? I don't mind, keep it real. Please comment, share, and like.
Hope you enjoyed what you've seen. Don't be a stranger.J
