La-La Land Crafts Bookcard Tutorial

Hi Everyone it is Jennifer here with Tutorial Thursday  for
La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Blog
and I am doing one of my favorite Cards a Bookcard. It is inspired by a
 friend of mine Teresa Brown and I have modified it so it works for all
 my Creations  and all my favorite Marci's, Luka's and Molli's. 



I have cut my white cardstock to 15cmx29cm and folded it in half

I have then layered it with mauve 14.5cmx14cm

For the front layer I have used 2x Open Hearts Doily Border
1x Stitched Elements Oval

I have then layered the Oval on top of the 2  Open Hearts Doily Border

Now I made these sweet little butterflies using centre hearts from

I then glued the centre just overlapping them.

I then popped 2 pearls in the centre and bent there wings up like they are flying.

I then decorated the Card. See those sweet little butterflies flying around.

Ok now on to the Centre. I have cut my cardstock to 15cmx29cm and marked in
 the measurements below solid lines are cut lines and dashed lines scored. The Cuts are
2.5cm down from the top and the same from the bottom up.

The mauve layered pieces measurements are
2 of 7.5cmx9.5cm
2 of 4cmx14.5cm
4 of 2x6
4 of 2cmx3.5cm
2 of 9.5cmx1.5cm

2 of white 7cmx9cm

Designer paper layers
2 of 3.5x14cm
4 of 1.5cmx5.5cm
4 of 1.5cmx3cm
2 of 1cmx9cm

Now fold all your mountains and valleys as in the picture.
Then decorate to please

Now where the red washi tape is that is where you pop doublesided tape and 
stick it to the inside of your outside card.
Hope you have enjoyed this Tutorial and look forward to seeing your finished Cards.
