Directions:

Begin by cutting 2 bookends from the brown cardstock, 4" x 2.75" and the 'pages' from the gold cardstock 10" x 3.5". Fold the gold paper in 1/2 and then fold each side in 1/2 again. This gives you 4 accordion pages.

Using StazOn Jet Black, stamp happy birthday on first Ace. Let dry.

Next stamp the cake on the Ace of Diamonds and let dry. Also stamp the cake on a scrap piece of paper and cut the cake out. This provides you with a mask to stamp the diamond pattern on the cake image.

Lay the mask over the cake-card, using StazOn black cherry stamp the harlequin pattern over the cake, remove mask and let dry.

It is easy to fill in any spaces the stamp didn't adhere by using a fantastix and the same ink.

Finish by stamping the harlequin pattern with Delicata golden glitz to the bookends, adhere cards to gold cardstock, and adhere gold cardstock to inside of bookends. Use a piece of bakers twine to close the card.
