Sunburst Mini Album

Hi... Friends... 

This is my post for this week... Its a mini album... With this I am attaching a link from where i got inspired... Hope you all like it... 

I made it few days back on request of a friend for his friend. Its accordion (I think so) style album. Sorry if it’s not because I just make whatever I like without knowledge of terms.  
I used black, cream and khaki colour card stocks. It is 18cm x 10cm album. I made the rim or the mechanism to hold tags with khaki and cream colour card stock and distressed them lightly. The outer cover was made with chip board and covered it with black card stock, then glued the tag holder to it and kept aside to dry.

I cut 12 pieces of 16x8.5cm for tags. As i don’t have tag die i used lawn fawn circle die to cut top portion of paper to keep it uniform, then distressed with distress ink. For added interest i dry embossed the lower portion of the tag with sizzix ‘thank you’ embossing folder.

I used sentiments from Penny Black, stamped them with memento ink and cut them out, distressed with distress ink and added a coat of clear UTEE. Flowers are from SSS Summer garden, stamped, cut and distressed the flowers, after drying applied a coat of ranger coracle paint and sprinkled rock candy glitter to the centre.

The sentiments were popped with foam tape and flowers were glued at the top of tags.
The outer cover was embellished with heat embossed heart image from hero arts. The closure was kept simple with a thread and a small butterfly.

Made one black tag to paste a photo of the couple.

Here is the link from where i got inspire to create this album.

I hope you liked the album..

Thank you
