A Bookmark Card Just for You!

Look, I'm not blogging about Christmas. It's beautiful outside and there's hint of spring in the air. I'm so excited! Hurry up spring!

You know what else I'm excited about? I'm excited about the Sale-a-Bration Punch Bunch stamp set. I love how each stamp in the set coordinates with a punch. Like this stamp. Although I did not use it in this way, but the "For You" stamp in the Punch Bunch stamp set coordinates with the scallop punch (as well as the 1-3/4" circle punch as you will see). 

Stampin’ Cita Tips:
  • This card is a greeting card with a book mark! You’ll need to obtain a few small magnet pieces to make the bookmark.
  • Color scheme: Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
  • Stamp sets: Sale-a-Bration Punch Bunch
  • Accessories and tools: Big Shot, Two Tags Bigz Die, Springtime Vintage DSP
  • To make the book mark, cut a piece of  2” x 8” cardstock and score and fold at 4”. Place the folded cardstock over the skinny tag on the Two Tags Bigz Die. Make sure to place the fold inside the tag so that you get a folded tag instead of two full, separate tags.

  • To make the "For You" embellishment for the bookmark, first punch a scallop from the Springtime Vintage DSP. Next punch a1-1/4" circle from Always Artichoke. Finally stamp the "For You" image in Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla and use the 1-3/4" circle punch to punch out the middle of the stamped image. 
  • Add some *bling* by placing a Rhinestone on the flower.
If you don't want to make this a bookmark card, all you have to do is just adhere the bookmark to your card, and wa-la, now it's just a card.

Happy Stampin'
