A few days ago I saw that INKURABLE STAMPERS had for their July theme ALTERED PLAYING CARDS.
As I have just read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland again for my book group that was first thing that came to mind; so here is my ALTERED ALICE CARD BOOK.

The pages are made from big playing cards, each one embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, coloured with black paint and Stazon inks and then mounted onto black card........mainly because some of the cards didn't stand up that well to the embossing and they were falling apart!
Each page then decorated with Alice images.

The pages are held together with yet more (smaller) playing cards folded and glued together to make hinges.

This is such fun! Bet you had a great time making it. Might have to have a go at one myself, Helen lent me her Alice stamps. My favourite page is the numbers embossing with the rabbit, they go so well together!!
ps shouldn't you be doing your diary design ;)
