Hi everyone! Lisa here with a card and gift idea in one! Today’s card is for a friend who has been a bit down lately and I want to send her a little something to cheer her up. As I don’t want to send chocolates through the mail this time of year, I thought including a bookmark would be a perfect little gift. So, I pulled out my Big Wonderful and Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp sets and got busy.
Here is a look at the card with the bookmark:
I used the largest of the Fancy Label Dies 1 to die cut the pocket to hold the bookmark. It is adhered with dimensionals so the bookmark can easily slip in. After stamping the sentiment, from Big Wonderful, I die-cut it with the second largest die and lightly sponged it. I added the doily as it looks pretty with the paper I chose from the Vintage Floral paper pad.
Now for a look at the bookmark:
I stamped two sentiments from Teeny Tiny Greetings.
The how-to on creating the bookmark:
The card stock was cut at 2 1/16 x 4 1/2 and the patterned paper, from the Vintage Floral paper pad, was cut at 1 9/16 x 4. The width is important as the pieces need to slide into the smallest and second smallest dies. The bookmarks can be any length. Once you have the paper in the dies, roll it through your machine just until it cuts, and then roll it back out. Do not roll all the way through as you will get the impression from the die on your paper.
One more look at the card:
Now sure if it shows good in the photo, but the sequins are iridescent green and purple.
That’s all for me today. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and mini tutorial.
Until next time…
