Instructions: This finished tent fold card measures 6.10” x 8.5” (16.9 cm x 21cm). Make the tent fold card base to the above measurements. Taking the Winter Rose ink, ink the edges of the card base. Find the background paper used for this card in the paper collection, trim this a little smaller than the card base measurements. Adhere together.

Taking the Booklet Basics die cut x3 of the largest book page, x1 of the frame that will fit into the small lace Booklet Frames die used on this card. Find the Booklet Frames used, the largest and the smallest die cut x1 of each. Taking the Winter Rose and the Sand Storm ink and the foam inking tool or dauber and apply the color to the edges of all die cuts. Taking the Swirl Border Accents Die set and the white card, die cut the larger swirl border x2. Ink this also the same as the booklet pages. Taking these swirl borders and the lace booklet frames apply glue to these then the glitter. Put aside to dry.

While the glue is drying make the flowers and sprays. To make the Asters, stamp the flowers and leaves using the Library Green ink. Bring colour to the stamping using the, Wild Rose ink, zig markers: green for the stems and pink for the flower buds. Once the colouring is done, die cut the shapes. Bring shape to the flowers and leaves by using the tools in the 3D flower shaping kit. To apply the prills: apply clear drying glue to the flower centres then pour the prills over the flower. With the shaping tool press down on the prills so the prills go into the glue, set aside to dry. When making two layers for the asters, the under layer does not have prills on them, only the top layers. The sprays are stamped, coloured and die cut, by using the 3D flower shaping tools shape the flower buds from the back to how you want them. Trim the spray if needed so you can use small parts of the spray to fill the flower clusters.

Adhere the swirl border to both top and bottom of the card. Taking the largest lace book frame, adhere to the centre of the card. Taking the booklet pages and the scoring tool, score down to make a centre fold of the pages. Curl the pages so they will fall when adhered like a 3d opened book. Stamp the sentiment onto the smallest page with the gold embossing powder. Stamp this also to a scrap white card so you can fussy cut the banner. When this is done add more of the winter rose ink to the banner. Apply extra of the sand storm ink over the sentiment to highlight it. Make also x2 of the bookmarks, ink this also with the winter rose ink. Adhere the pages together by adding strips of craft foam between the pages to lift them.

I love these cards this is the way I would like to be making all of my cards. I love the book die. I have a small book die I use a lot and would love to have the larger one. But I am a Sr. citizen on a limited income and I do all my cards for family and friends instead of buying cards I can make them for less the you have to pay for them at a store. I can't wait until my birthday in November because this is what I want for my Birthday. Thank you for such beautiful cards. Bonnie Joy
