For my card I am using ODBD As You Graduate for the scene along with the newly released Bookmark-Prayers and ODBD Custom Spellbinders Bookmark dies.  LOVE THESE! 


 My question for you today is.....Can you give a man a bookmark?  My answer...I do not see why not.  If they read the Bible or take notes for work projects, a bookmark is a great little gadget and a useful form of inspiration and encouragement that is technically "on the go." 








Today, I set out to make a guy card with a "behind the scenes" bookmark pocket.   Literally....the bookmark is housed behind the scene.  I used score tape on three sides to create a fun little useful pocket for my bookmark.  Once the bookmark is removed, the card stands alone without anything appearing missing.

I first stamped the scene image in vintage cream and embossed.  I then sponged on Memento Bahama ink.  I created the pocket, stamped and die cut the bookmark, inked edges, added a rustic tassel to my bookmark, and finished with a few blue gems.  I like how it turned out. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is  Connie's blog.

  27. This is gorgeous Betty. I bought some white ink and EP last winter because I was going to do Christmas cards with it, and I never got around to it. I love the white stamped and embossed images, and yours is really beautiful. I also love the way you added the bookmark so it wouldn't look like something is missing when it's removed.
