Other Materials Used: 



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.
