A couple of book cards for boys

Hello there! And thank you for visiting our blog today. I was asked to make two confirmand cards for boys by an old friend of mine. Her son and his best friend are confirmands this spring. I looked for inspiration, and found it on Hilde‘s instagram. I made myself a template for the vest. And the bow is made with a Sizzix die.


But as you can see, these are not some ordinary cards, they are book cards. Perfect to place small gifts or even money inside. I am in love with the new collection Vintage Romance, and of course I had to use the new papers on these cards aswell. The cards measures 16 x 11 x 2,5 cm.


The hashtag-texts are written on my computer and printed out.


I have glued on the buttons, and painted the papers and the buttons brifely with white gesso. All the papers edges are inked with Distress Ink-Walnut Stain and sewed. Under each pattern paper, I have bazzill-Vanilla. I like the thickness :)


Here are just some closeups of the cards. The bow is made with the cool paper called Honeymoon bs. So the paper is not only for weddings, also mainly boys and mens cards.


I really adore the patterns in the Maja Design papers, and the papers in the collections fits so well together.


The letters are cut out with dies from Sizzix. And I have added Crackle Accent onto them (then they get a more shabby 3D look).


For the inside I have made a pocket. and also put some hashtags and greetings inside of the folded sides. I have used watercolour paper 200g from Canson for the foldings.

Here is the list of the papers I have used on my projects:
