Cabinet Card Book

I had the pleasure this past weekend of taking 2 classes instructed by Joni Russell of Mrs. O'Leary's Art of Wichita, KS. The classes were taught at the Stamp Asylum (love that name) in Plano, TX.  The following project we constructed in one of the classes.

Front of book.

Close up of resin filled bezel.

Spine of book with 3 hand stitched signatures and ribbon binding.

Back of front cover and cover of first signature.

Back of first signature and front cover of the 2nd signature.

Back cover of 2nd signature and front of 3rd signature.

Inside back cover.

Back of book showing one of the beautiful cabinet card stamps offered by Artful Illusions. You can find them here on page 152.

It is amazing what can be done with chipboard, ink, paper and a bit of waxed linen thread.  Now that the construction is done, I need to fill the pages with vintage pictures.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Eclectic Ellapu's  "Anything Goes" challenge
"Anything Goes" challenge at Fussy and Fancy.
