My husband asked me if I had a bookmark the other day and I didn't. So I made him one tonight and tucked it inside this 'manly' card. I have always had a hard time doing guy cards, because I tend to be 'girly' with my colors and style. So I kept this one simple, followed Papertake Weekly's sketch and added a fun embellishment. Here is the card (you can see a little of the bookmark on the side):
The image was so fab I didn't want to 'girl it up' by adding color. Now a close-up of my home made embellishment:It is a piece of plastic I found lying around (not super thick, but not paper thin either). I inked it (with a background stamp, didn't expect it to show), added embossing powder and heat it up. My husband will tell me I wasn't being safe (I burn myself all the time on my clue gun, he says I get hurt more crafting than doing anything else). You have to heat it a few seconds, hold something on the plastic to achieve the desired folding, then repeat until it looks like you want it to. You wouldn't have to use powder, I just wanted to add color.
