Wild West Book Tunnel Card

Book Cover

Book Tunnel card-
I made this card for my Hubby's birthday, he loved cowboys and Indians as a child but it would make a great Fathers Day card too. All the images come from the fantastic Crafthouse Press Men's travel and Sport CDrom. You will need to print out the Boys adventure and cowboy being chased by a train decoupage onto card then one of the background papers ( I used the advertising one ) onto both sides of a piece of printable cardstock.

Cut out all the bits of decoupage and then measure the size of the background image of the Boys adventure and cut a piece of the background paper the same height. Take this piece and score every 1cm, fold into a fan fold.
Decide how many pieces of the cowboy and train decoupage you want to use and remembering you need the back piece and an extra mountain fold for the cover, cut the number of folds off you need.
Do the same amount for the other side. If you do all the layers you need 5 mountains for your sides. Using Imaginations crafts magi bond, this is ideal for this as it has such a fine nozzle, run some glue down the first 1cm at the back and glue to the back of your background image.
Do the same for the other side. Take the next image in the layering and stick that to the down side of the next mountain, the same on the other side.
Carry on until all your larger images are used up, the cowboy on his horse and the bit of rock I used 3d foam to put them onto the picture as you would normal decoupage.
You should now have an extra mountain at the front. Cut a piece of acetate the same size as the card and stick to the up side of the extra mountain at the front.
Cut two 1cm strips from your background paper and glue them to the front of your acetate to frame the tunnel picture.
Cut a piece of background paper to cover the back of your Book of adventure image which will be the book cover and then stick that to the outside of the extra mountain on the left hand side to form the hinge. You can cut extra 1cm strips to cover any white card.
Decoupage up the front of your cover and cover the back of you card and you are all done.
You can also print off an envelope from the CDrom to match.
