I really love making this card. It does take quite a while to make as there is a lot of stamping and sponging as well as the sewing in of the "book". I used the score pal which was great fro scoring all of the folds. The card is made with 3 sections, 2 folds but because of the bulkiness of the finished card, you need to make 2 score lines at each fold 1/8" apart to create narrow spines at each side. I score all of the lines before I do any stamping. The dimensions of the card are 11 1/2" x 5 3/4" with the score lines at 3 5/8" for the front then 1/8" for the spine and then 3 3/4", then 1/8". The front panel is slightly narrower than the other 2 panels because it needs to tuck into the right side panel and not make the card bulge out of shape. I have another example of this card in different colours in my gallery.
