Bookmark Card

Happy Valentines Day all! Now normally today i would post a card that goes with the festive day... but since i posted an extra video yesterday of my Valentines Day Coupon Book (you can see that here).  For today i decided to post a Bookmark card.  Above is the front of the card.  The greeting "So Worth The Wait" is from the awesome stamp set Word Play.  I guess that could kind of go with Valentines Day huh... if you Valentine is away or not knowing you want them to be your Valentine yet, lol, then you are waiting.  Anywhoo...

When you open the card the above two pictures is what the inside looks like.  The flap that has the Night of Navy card stock on it is actually your bookmark.  It is perforated so that you, or whomever you give your card too, can tear it off easily and use it in their book.  How cute is that.  I wish i would of taken a picture of the bookmark once it is tore off :( Oops!!!

To make the card you start with a piece of card stock cut at 4 1/4" x 10 1/4".  Score then, with your regular scoring blade/tool at 8" and then take your perforating tool and score at 4".  You may to press kind of hard with your perforating blade to make sure that it will tear easy, but don't push too hard that it goes through the paper.  The DSP on the front, Comfort Cafe, is cut at 4" x 3 3/4". For the circle shape around my image, from the great stamp set Feeling Sentimental, which is available right now for SAB (click here to view the SAB brochure) i just free handed a circle around my image and then again with a piece of Night Quite Navy.  The actual bookmark inside i just put a piece of Night of Navy cut at 4" x 2". I wasn't quite sure how i was going to decorate it... so it is just plain. But sometimes i don't think that plain is that bad.

Here is a closer look at the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from SAB:
Well, that's all for today.  I hope you enjoyed and until next time...
