Step by step tutorial:

I started with a purple cardstock measuring 18cm x 5cm,



and punched it with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.



Then I stamped the World Map background stamp in the white cardstock with the Starlite Black ink.



I bought this open book stamp years ago on Ebay, it doesn’t even have a brand. This was not what I was looking for, but I can’t find any books stamps here in the UK. My idea was to cut the holes on the book pages to then tuck the map image underneath. So it would look that the pages were the maps. With this image that was not possible… Oh well, maybe one day I will find a nice book stamp set…

To stamp the book image I used the Pearlescent Lavender ink.



I cut the books and attached them to my first layer. I then punched out my quote with the Decorative Label Tag Punch, and sponged the edges with Dusty Concord distress ink. Adding it to the top of my two layers. I’m so not sure about this result…
