Stamp Birdhouse and Butterfly from Bella Rose House once, Bella Rose Vintage Background twice and two roses from Classic Bella Rose twice onto X-Press It Blending Card and colour with Copic Markers adding detail with Spica and glitter pens.  Cut out Birdhouse and set aside. Using the matching die cut out the butterfly and put aside.  From one stamped and coloured Vintage Background cut around the roses and leaves at the bottom as well as the butterfly. Using foam mounting tape add this piece over the complete image and spray with Glimmer Mist. Glimmer Mist the butterfly and when dry add this to the background stamp using foam to pop it up. Die cut the two single roses using the matching die, put aside.  Stamp the sentiment and die cut with the labels 14 die, put aside.
To make up the ‘pages’ of the Book Box Card cut from white card two pieces measuring 9 x 5.5” and two pieces 9 x 5.75”. Score 11 times at .75” on all four strips and concertina fold using a bone folder to give a crisp fold. The 5.75” pieces make up the right and left side of the book pages and the 5.5” are the top and bottom. Slotting them together by inserting the folds one into the other, add some tacky glue between the last folds top and bottom to secure the pages together. Sponge the edges with the peach parfait glue.    Punch four pieces of eyelet dsp at .75” wide and attach to the front of the folded pages.
Measure and cut the brown Pearlized card at 6 x 12” and score at 5.75” and 6.25” fold on score lines. 
To construct:  Open up the Scored brown card. Cut a length of ribbon and secure to the inside right hand page with d/s tape. Sit the completed pages over the Vintage Background image and secure with d/s tape. Position this section on the inside right hand page over the ribbon. Secure into position with d/s tape and tacky glue. Die cut four corner swirls from the glittered card and using tacky glue add these to the four corners.  Add a layer of dsp to the left page and add the die cut sentiment. Using tacky glue add the two roses.
 The front page is made up by adding a length of ribbon to the brown card using d/s tape to adhere.  Then a layer of glitter paper cut just 1/8” smaller than the cover.  Trim the Webster’s Pages to 1/8” smaller than the glittered paper and using a craft knife cut a square, my chosen paper had a squared section in the pattern so I used that. Place the image centred to this cut out; adhere with d/s tape and tacky glue to the glittered paper. Attach the Webster’s Pages over this with a couple of elements overlapped (Mine has a rose bud and leaves).  Add the self-adhesive gem swirls and pop the Butterfly up using foam tape and some tacky glue.  Tie a pretty bow in the ribbon to secure the book closed.

Tomorrow I'll be back with this weeks AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge hope you can join in again.

Sue, I am just blown away by your creations for HFC this week. I was at their blog yesterday and your projects were just stunning as is this one. I wish that I could sew as I am so in love with that quilt tea bag. The tea cup makes is so pretty and you are so creative to think of making it. You are doing a bang up job for them.
