Hello there and thanks for visiting my blog today!
My November header is the culprit to the many rutted trees in my backyard 😭. I have been spending lots of time out in the yard this Fall planting new trees to replenish the many that have fallen, or have had to be taken down, over the past few years. They had small tender trunks and when the side gates got blown open a week ago, this guy decided it would be a good idea to come in and rub his antlers over six of them. He definitely killed three of them, but I hope that the other three may survive. I was devastated! Then after closing the gates and putting up tree guards around everything that could be a potential patient, I went out the next morning and found this - lying outside one of the gates! He is huge!
Anyway, on to my card:
,,,, or should I say anything but a card, as that is the theme over at Christmas Craft Creations for the month of November.
So, I chose to make a corner bookmark.
Starting with a piece of navy cardstock 4" x 4", using my scoring mat, I marked the 2" mark on three of the sides. Lining the marks up and scoring and folding the two diagonals in towards each other, making the back of the bookmark.
I then chose my patterned paper and cut it to fit the inside of the back and taped it into position. A square piece of navy card 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" was cut diagonally, then taped over the two triangles to create the pocket for the bookmark. I traced around the bookmark on to the back of another piece of the same designer paper.
I cut out the DP on the inside of the lines, so that there would be a little navy blue border when this was taped down to the front.
For the back of the bookmark, I used the sentiment and snowflakes from another penguin set from Hampton Art (SC0714) and arranged this in my stamping platform and stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with Detail White embossing powder.
I then took a little piece of wire and slipped it through the tassel, so the tassel would not slip out.
