Bookmark card

This is a bookmark card – a very simple one because it’s part of a kit I’ve made for a group of eight-year-old girls. They’ll have everything cut and prepared and just need to stamp and assemble. 

The piece of cardstock is cut from a sheet of A4 down to 148mm wide, using the full length of the sheet (does that even make sense?). Then it’s creased into thirds, to create three 99mm wide panels. If you want it in imperial I’m afraid you’ll have to work it out for yourself, sorry!

Then you slice off the left panel at an angle, as shown and fold the card into a Z shape, with the sliced panel at the front. Tape around the edges of the sliced panel to create a pocket for the bookmark.

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Cardstock: Lavender Lace, Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Perfect Plum
Accessories: Blender pens, ¼” grosgrain ribbon - Whisper White, corner rounder, Crop-A-Dile™
