My Creative Time ~May Stamp Release: "Celebrate Good Times!" & "Tag Dies"

Hello!  Can you believe that we are almost done with this week?  It's just been flying by for me!  I hope you've been enjoying all the FABULOUS projects that my DT mates have been creating with My Creative Time's May Release!  Since this release has a lot of masculine stamps and dies, I wanted to show you that it's not all "manly".  :)  So today I made a card/gift that's very girlie, however you could make it "manly" if you wanted!  :)


It's a bookmark on a card!  I got the idea from a friend that was recently at a stamp party.  Her's was just a small triangle with a monogram, it was so cute.  I realized that I could do something similar by using the tag die!  Also I wanted it to be a card, so I created a small pocket for it.


I cut a tag using the Tag Dies,  folded angles toward the center at the top of the tag.  Added the Build A Banner dies for embellishments.  On the back I glued paper to cover the folded angles.  It slips over the page for a marker.


Recipe:
Teresa Collins and PTI paper
Tim Holtz ink
fine glitter

You have a very clever take on the bookmark idea! I like that it is bigger than a triangle and beautiful too. Great idea to put a pocket to hold it on the card.
