Butterfly Card and Bookmark in One

I wanted to make a card for a co-worker and include a bookmark as she reads a lot. I combined the card and bookmark together. It is a tri-fold card and after it is folded, it fits into an A2 envelope.

The cardstock was cut at 10 x 5 1/4
I scored at 4 1/4 and again at 8 1/2. You can use a tool to perforate at the 8 1/2 score line or you can bend the cardstock back and forth several times. This will break the paper threads and allow the recipient to remove the bookmark very easy.
The rest was decorating the card the way you choose. I made sure the ribbon on the front was placed exactly where the ribbon on the bookmark would be placed so they lined up evenly. For the bookmark, I used only one word from the sentiment on the front…Smile. I made sure my sentiment stamp was cleaned so it would stamp just the word smile. To color it black, I used my black marker to color in only the word Smile.

Thank you for visiting today!
