Easter Bookmark Card

This card can be used for Easter or you can change it slightly to a different theme. The basics stay the same.

The card base is a 7" x 5" card with a fold on the left side. I folded the front part of the card in half. To make sure the half would stay towards the left I used some red sticky tape to adhere it.

Now to the part where you create the pocket for your bookmark. The front (half) panel of the card will be adhered to the back panel with two strips of red sticky tape placed on the top and bottom of the half panel.

For the papers, we used blue cardstock measuring 2 1/2" x 6" and adhered it to the front, flush with the top. A small piece of design paper 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" is run through a scallop edge border punch and also adhered it to the bottom.

Another piece of design paper 2" x 4" is placed in the center of the blue paper. We stamped a phrase on an oval cutout and placed a matching scalloped oval behind it.
On the right side of the card base we stamped "There's nobunny like you" and doodled some stitch pattern around the edges.

For the bookmark we used the same papers and the same "Nobunny" stamp to decorate the strip.

There is enough room for a nice phrase or saying on the back of the bookmark.

A few rhinestones and some yellow ribbon finishing off this card.
Like I mentioned before, you can use any card base for this project. It all depends on how long your bookmark is, so it will fit in the pocket.

This card is also perfect for all these little paper pieces you have left. Why not create a stack of bookmarks with them? They can also make great gifts in itself.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or like to join my classes.

Stay tuned for one more Easter card to come...
