Want to do a add a little something extra when you send your next homemade card? How about incorporating a bookmark as a snazzy design element? It's so easy to do and I have oodles of pictures to share with you below!
I originally saw this bookmark idea on a Splitcoast Technique Challenge (TLC187) several weeks ago and decided to make a "chorus line" of them for my book group next week. The layout of the 4.25" x 5.5" card is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC62.
Begin with a 2" x 4" piece of card stock. TIP: I opted for Night of Navy Textured card stock for the extra "heft" it provides. Score at 2".
I finished up by stamping off the card stock with Organic Grace (Hostess Level 1) images in Night of Navy and adding a Creamy Caramel edge (by flicking the card stock on the ink pad). Both sides of the bookmark sport a stamped triangle.
