I wanted to alter this old book, so I thought I'd start with the cover. The new Arched Windows One dies perfectly suited the gothic theme I was going for. I layered three different sized arches over a photo of Notre Dame cathedral. For effect, I embossed each layer to make them looked bricked.

Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday.  Today we have a book card to share with you.


Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Paper: 

10=1001E White 
7-744 Stonewash 
7-793 Atlantic 
2-1220 Wedding butterflies 

Spellbinders: 

LF-018 Grand Decorative Labels One 
JB-10025 Nested Oval Medallions
 S4-113 Scalloped Ovals small 
S5-050 Rose Creations 
S5-086 Bitty Blossoms 
S5-129 Foliage Two

JustRite Stamps: 

CL-03535 Always and forever medallion labels 

Other Materials Used: 

Ribbons 

Instructions:

Step One:
Cut out 3 descending dies from the Grand decorative labels one also emboss them. I chose 3 complimentary colours. I did not use the largest size but used the next 3 down.


Step Two:
Score in the middle of the die-cut to make it look like 2 pages from a book. Its easy to work out the centre line the die-cut rises up a bit at the top. I then scored a line each side of that score line about ½ a cm away from your centre line.


Step Three:
Fold these lines you just scored. It will give the appearance of an open book.



Step Four: 
I didn't work this out till later, but its a good tip if you hold the individual pages on the edge of a desk or table and roll the paper down over the edge it will give a curve to the page thus helping it look like an open book.


Step Five :
Using double sided tape or glue run down the first score line we made on the back of the 2 smaller die cuts and adhere the second largest to the front of the largest die cut and so forth till your 3 book pages are joined together. Our book card is coming together now.


Step Six:
Now choose 2 complimentary ribbons not to thick one a little thinner then the other now add this to the centre front of your book, the widest one first and then the thinner one right over the top.


Step Seven:
Now we get to the really fun part. Decorate to your own tastes I used the scalloped ovals on the left side and the nested oval medallions on the right for the sentiment with the lovely Happy Birthday stamp from the Always and forever medallion labels. Then some flower die cuts to finish it off.

We took the children to their first ANZAC day dawn service and parade in Melbourne. This is a photo of Elouise proudly wearing her poppy. I printed the photo in black and white and coloured the poppy with a Distress Marker to highlight it a little. I also made my own poppy using the very versatile Rose Creations dies. The green twiggy foliage represents the rosemary that is used for remembrance. The red and white twine serves to link the photo area with the title at the bottom of the page. In keeping with the army theme, I added some hidden journaling on some tags to look like dog tags, and a piece of old page torn from a history book about the First World War.
