Technique Lover's Challenge #268

Bookmark Card FRONT

Bookmark card- Inside- Perforated Bookmark
I've been playing with this bookmark idea in my head for awhile and today's Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoaststampers gave me the perfect opportunity.
I used my new Clevercut (5 in 1) Paper Trimmer from Crafter's Companion to make the straight cuts, score my card for the fold, round the corners and perforate the edge for the removable bookmark.
My image is this wonderful new release I have been having fun with BLOOMING WITH BLESSINGS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

What I did: Basically, I made a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card but cut an extra 2 1/2 wide on the bottom part that would be the inside. Then used the perforated blade to separate bookmark from card inside and allowing it to fold inward and be removed. I cut the top edges off like a tag. Made a slightly smaller white panel to adhere to it after I stamped my images on it. I added an eyelet and ribbon. And used the 1 1/4 circle punch to make a hole in the fold to allow for the bookmark's ribbon to show through the front.
