Ring out the old ...

Ring in the new! Here is the first card for my GG2009 collection. I love the way Sandy has caught the feel of the storm. A wonderful start to the year.

as a bonus it came wrapped in this great piece of vintage fabric.

And here is the Old Year, I have been wondering for some time how to keep and display them, and this is what I came up with. This is the cover, front and back


It is made from corrugated card covered in moulding paste, painted and gilded. The decoration is a collection of shrink plastic tags with the names of the girls.

It can be opened as a conventional book

or displayed 3D

and here it is in its full glory.

Thank you girls.

Pat, you creative ole thing you! Just gorgeous - I rather think you've over simplified how you did that cover though!!
