NOEL Word Play and Bookmarks

I've enjoyed playing with my ODBD bookmark dies and stamps.

This was created for a dear friend~

I'm submitting this to

ODBDSLC184  N-O-E-L Word Play

 This week's challenge is: NOEL Word Play (use items beginning with each letter in noel to create your card or project) eg. N- notions, nestabilities, negative O- oval or circle shape, olive, old E- embossing, embellishments, eggplant (color), envelope L-Lace, layered, letterpress

N-negative snowflake
O-older paper (2009) & ornate (the most ornate paper I have!)
E-elegant (the most elegant/matchy-matchy stamps I have)
L-long and lean card

Here is a simpler card with a removable bookmark also~

It's fun to roll bookmarks out of my Big Shot when I don't have the time to design a card..but still want to create.

Those longer cereal/cake mix boxes are treasures for cutting out thicker bookmarks.

This fantastic idea inspired me two years ago~it's from a

Make It Monday tutorial by Erin.

It makes a die cut more substantial~almost more of a gift!

~Now I have bookmarks ready for cards~

Have a blessed day friends~enjoy this last week before Christmas!

  1. love that bookmark die too... this is amazing..

  2. Card and bookmark = fabulous! You've sparked more ideas for my *please make 90 tags* request from my sister-in-law, that I"m trying feverishly to fulfill. Bookmarks are 'kind of tags' (in the world of just me: c, they are...), soooo...may have to ponder some strategies. Cereal boxes, yesssss!! LOVE this!

  3. Marlena, your card is beautiful ~ Love the bookmark gift idea! Thanks so much for the cereal box "chipboard" reminder...totally forgot about that MIM video :)
