Sunflower Library Card

Sunflower library card Heather Telford

I remember when all the library books had cards tucked into a pocket inside the back cover. I don’t remember any of the library cards being particularly pretty though! I am enjoying using the library card stamp and the notebook page also from the set “Life’s Journals”

I created my library card with distress stains, first inking the stamp then spritzing and stamping it on watercolour paper. I used a waterbrush to blend the colours and add any extra colour including blue for the background. I stamped the library card image when the paper was almost dry. The olive notepad page behind was die cut in two steps. Because I wanted the notepad to be wide enough to almost fill the card base I ran the die through the Big Kick half-way then repositioned the die by lining up the little circles at the top and ran it through again. The library card and label are popped up over a piece of faux burlap ribbon.

I haven’t stamped anything inside the card yet but the “For the Record” stamp leaves me plenty of possibilities…

    I have to thank you for this card, Heather — as a former teacher-librarian, I have two different library card stamps (not to mention actual library cards), but haven’t had much success using them. I will definitely take inspiration from this card!
