A New Trend in Stamping ~ It's A What? ~

Good morning!

It's no secret that I love making cards. I often wonder what happens to those cards once the receiver has read it and hopefully displayed it for awhile... LOL So, I wanted to create a card that would pull double duty.

I was fishing around in my stash the other day and found my preforating blade for my Carl cutter. I had this idea! How about making a card that doubles as a bookmark!

I cut the base at 2" x 9" and used the preforating blade to score it at 4 1/2". The little piggie is sticking up just a tad over the top to make the card 2" x 5 1/2" when finished. His head is attached with a thin strip of lift tape so that the pages can slide under his chin.

All the receiver has to do is tear at the fold and voila... a bookmark!

Here are the deets:
Stamps: You're so Punny
Colors: GP White, Pink, Brown
Ink: Versafine black onyx, copics
Accessories: Dimensionals, embossing folders

Now it's your turn! Share your ideas of what a card can double as!

Have a great day!!

  1. What a fun idea Holly! I always wonder what happens to my cards as well :)

  2. I never throw away a card! I have so many displayed and others in baskets kept for inspiration! This little piggy book mark is a cute as can be. SO many great things you could do to make book mark cards, I LOVE the idea, TFS...hugs
