Aren’t these fun cards? I needed a lovely way to say “thank you” for some Christmas kindnesses and knew I wanted to add a little bonus with the card. A bookmark card was the perfect solution! I used some Cloud 9 Design paper by Colorbök that I just adore. The stamp on the bookmark is Stampin’ Up! Block Party. I heat embossed the sentiment with a Close To My Heart Silver Pearl embossing powder. You can see the sentiment clearly, but I really love the look of the pearlescent powder. A quick knot of a slate blue twill tape is tied through the top to complete the bookmark.
To make the pocket for the bookmark was incredibly simple. After adhering the first paper to my card base, I just cut a triangle from a complimentary paper. I then adhered the triangle on two sides, making sure to leave the top open to form my pocket.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is from a Stamps of Life set (love these stamps!), as is the flower inside and on the envelope. Both stamps are from the thank you set Stephanie sends out for your one year anniversary in the club – Thanks4OneYear. You’ll find I try to decorate my envelopes with nearly every card I make. It’s a little extra that makes a big difference. Oh – and the colors of the inks in real life match MUCH better than they're showing up in the pics. Trust me, I'm not that goofy. 😉
