Bookmark Cards

Well, it's Monday again! Today I created a tutorial on bookmark cards for the InStyle Stamps blog. They are a super easy, fun project to make. And what a sweet little gift to send in the mail! Everyone loves getting a handmade card, and who doesn't need a bookmark? The idea for it came from a tutorial I saw on SCS. They used the Creatopia to make their cards -- I'm not that fancy *wink*!

I created my bookmark to match my card. You could do coordinating images, a sentiment, or pretty much whatever you want! My image is Sasha from InStyle Stamps - I love her. She's colored with both Prismacolor markers and Copics.

Aside from the goofy errors I made (coloring the images outside the lines the first time, cutting out the wrong colored cardstock with my nesties, putting the eyelet in before I attached the green panel to the kraft base, lol) the card and bookmark were super easy to make. I'm actually thinking about making a few to have on hand for birthday cards :)

Well, we're off to see our little man on what should be our last ultrasound before he gets here in May! Have a wonderful day!!!
