Tutorial Tuesday- New Tutorial!!

Hi fellow crafters!!

This week we have a Tutorial that you will love
specially to add a little gift in the card for those
that love a good book!

The Tutorial is for you to create a Bookmark Card!

Here is my Bookmark Card and the inside from the
card for you to see.

Bookmark Card Tutorial:

Supplies needed:
Digital Stamp
Cardstock 12x12 Inches
Christmas patterned paper

Markers or Pencils for coloring

Step 1: Cut cardstock to 5 ½ x 12 inches
Step 2: I used a rectangle Digital stamp called Sleigh Ride from Shelly’s Images, that's why my card will
be rectangular in shape.
Color the Digital stamp to your delight on your pc and print it out or print it out and color it
with your favorite markers.

Step 3: For the bookmark cut a piece of cardstock measuring 3 ¾ x 5 ½ inches.

Step 4: Make 3 Folds in the 5 ½ x 12 inch piece of cardstock.
        1st fold: 3 ¼
        2nd fold: 4 ½ inches
        3rd fold  5 ¼ inches

Step 5: Cut a piece from Christmas patterned paper for the background on your card.

Decorate the back from the card by adhering the printed colored Digital Stamp.
Step 5: Adhere the ribbon to the card.

Step 6: The size for the bookmark is 3 ¾ x 5 ½ inches.
Use the same patterned paper for the bookmark. Cut it about ½  inch smaller at both sides

and about 1 inch less at the top.

Step 7: decorate it with flowers and punch a hole in the center and put
a piece of ribbon through it.

Step 8: close the card and put the bookmark at the inside of the card.
hold it in place with a 3D square.

Now we would love to see your Bookmark Card this week.

Have fun!
