Hey there! Today I have a fun and easy card idea with a bookmark on the front held in place with just two little die-cuts! I'm working on my New Catalog Open House projects, these might be one of the Make & Takes. I use the Wood Textures Suite from pages 158-149 of the new catalog.
All are very rustic and sort of manly.The images in the Wood Words stamp set are rustic and distressed-looking, perfect to pair with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Chocolate Chip! I used Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for the top layer of the bookmark, stamping directly on the DSP for a custom look!
After punching the top of the 2" wide bookmark with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, I added a 6" piece of new 1/4" Copper Trim. This trim is AMAZING! It starts out 1/4" wide, but because it is not tightly woven, you can pull on the edges and stretch it out! Love the dimension this adds to the project! The trim almost looks ruffled! (it also looks kind of spider-webby, so we shall see what we can do with it later for Halloween!)
I used the coordinating Wood Crate Framelit Dies to cut out the stamped rooster. The Wood Crate Framelits contain 6 dies consisting of the rooster, a star, a half-moon, a heart, a tag, and a die to crate a "wood crate"! I adhered just the head, the front of the chest, and the feet of the rooster with Liquid Glue so I could slide the bookmark under the tail. I adhered a second rooster on the lower right side of the bookmark to complete the slot to insert the tag.
The Wood Words images are an eclectic mix of florals, bold images, and phrases. A great mix!
Another color combo for the same card idea. I used a 1" Circle Punch because there isn't a Wood Crate die for it.
And a third idea using White Craft ink to stamp the star on Early Espresso before cutting with the Wood Crate star die.
Well, this post has turned out to be much longer than I expected, so I'll leave you with the link to shop in my online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps
That's all for now, until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!
