Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Mabel's Diary - Project #5

Happy Sunday, my friends!

I am back with my 5th, and final, project using Mabel's Diary from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought this would make a lovely and appropriate gift.
This is the front of my project.
I used this fun polka dot paper, and added the fussy cut woman.
I cut out three of the hearts, placing one in her hand, and adding the other two.
I punched a number of other hearts, and scattered them about. 
Finally I added some pretty red stickles.

The spine is 1/2".

Here's the back. It measures 5" X 7 1/2".
I added ribbon under the papers for a tie closure.

Here's the inside.
Now you can see that it's a folio full of cards and envelopes.
There are four cards and four envelopes tucked into each side.
I made envelopes using my WRMK Envelope Punch Board. 

To make the cards, I chose eight of the most romantic looking pages. 
I printed them, two per page, and cut them out.
I distressed them all with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Then I cut the cardstock card slightly bigger to frame them.

Here are the other four.
The cards all measure 3 3/4" X 5".

Since the cards are black, I added a punched label to write the sentiment on.

There's still time to make one of these yourself,
to gift on Valentine's day!

Hi Nancy, this is a wonderful project - you have put everything together perfectly and your design and the papers you have used are really pretty. It would be lovely if you could enter my candy giveaway at tanglemouse too.
