Happy Birthday Card with a Bookbinding Embellishment

I hardly ever think of book corners for cards! Here I've featured the new Spellbinders Celebra'tions Doily Art Embossing folder and Quietfire Scalloped Book corners. I *needed*(!) to use the new Doily Art embossing folder!!

Instructions (supply list below)
  1. Form a 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" card base from #110 Solar White cardstock.
  2. Emboss the Doily Art using minty cardstock and trim so only the doily portion of the embossing remains. Score the embossed image in half and slit the spine for about 1/4" along the spine, right in the middle. Crimp Silver Scalloped book corners to the corners using pliers.
  3. Tie floppy bow with white wrinkled ribbon (approximately 2 yards) and thread the ends through the slot in the spine of the embossed image.  Secure the ends with tape.
  4. Stamp the smaller Quietfire Design Happy Birthday using Turquoise Gem on #80 Solar White cardstock.
  5. Die cut sentiment with the smallest label in Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two and sponge the edges with more Turquoise Gem ink.
  6. Adhere Pop Dots to the back of the embossing and mount on the white card base allowing the embossed image to extend about 1/4" from the spine of the white card base.
  7. Adhere stamped die cut onto embossed image using Mini Glue Dots.
 Thanks for having a look!
Happy creating, Suzanne
