K is for Katie

Andrew's youngest sister, Katie, and I both celebrate our birthdays in July. I love making cakes (obviously) and she loves ice cream, so we spent an afternoon making an ice cream cake to share with the ManyMeadows. I also made her this book as a gift. I used a pinstriped cardstock for the cover to give it a vintage look.

I used ruby red paper for the pages and chose a matching glitter for the embellishment.

I then used good ol' Elmer's glue and an alphabet stencil to create a "K" on the front cover. Once I had created the glue outline, I used the red glitter to create a raised letter.

I'm happy with how it turned out and I'm excited to try this technique again...maybe even with a whole WORD next time!
