Bookmark Card

Good Morning! The sun is shining, but it's deceiving. . . It's still frigid outside. I am READY for Spring. Here's another project from Stamp Club. I made this bookmark card using the Splitcoaststampers tutorial found HERE. I adore this idea! Send a beautiful handmade card to someone special and they can keep a part of your special creation by using the attached bookmark. I sent my first one to a friend for her birthday and she LOVED it. I think my club ladies like the idea too. . . The best part - the card still measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2, which means it will fit neatly into a standard envelope. I got the inspiration for the colors from my new Basic Gray satin ribbon. I was dying to use it on something, so I built my color scheme accordingly. The layered flowers were seen HERE first. I loved how she used completely different colors for the flower layers. Very cool.

Thanks for looking. Oodles of Toodles!
