I was asked to make a special 100th Birthday card for a close family friend. I have only made two other 100 Birthday cards before...its a bit special really and quite an honour! This 100th Birthday Card turned into a book as the person requesting it wanted photos and messages from everyone in the family.
I altered a little Close to my Heart Book that I had with the Kaisercraft Time Machine Collection. Time Machine was perfect for this project because of the masculine colours and feel to the papers and the little quotes all tied in well with the celebration of 100 years of life.
I used Kaisercraft Alpha Chipboard for the sentiment on the front of the book and inked them with Bark Ink.
This was the first page as you open the book.
After taking the photos and sending the book away I thought about sharing this project on my blog. However I wanted the messages and names of the people in the book to remain private. So I edited the photos afterwards to white out the text.
Each page inside consisted of a photo and a matching birthday message from each section of the family.
The papers and collectables did all the work on this project.
I used a Copic marker to change the white spiral binding to a more rustic look and Kaisercraft "Vintage" ink to add some distressing to the edges of the pages.
I was happy with how it turned out and all the family loved it : )
