 Hi there, I thought I would let
you see my latest Faux Book card I have made to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday in April.

I made this with thick card and covered this first with patterned paper on both sides..

Spine showing the added detail..

 On the spine I reinforced it and then added some brads and raised up cardboard strips to give some interest.
Getting ready for the rose print

I used the top layer of this serviette to decorate.
The tissue is added and looks like crinkled
leather when dry.

Inside the book covered with tissue and the 1st layer shows through ..
