Hi and thanks for stopping by! I am excited to share the new MFT Bookmark Duo Die-namics and Stamp set with you today. I have so many friends and family that love to read!
For my first project with the set I made a card/gift card holder and a bookmark.
I stamped one of the sentiments from the set with Amuse Ink in Watermelon and cut it out with the Circle STAX Die-namics. Since I wanted my card to double as a gift card holder I thought it would be fun to add a button and twine to hold the card closed. I threaded the twine through the button, glued down one end and wrapped the other end around the card and then around the button.
The doily flap is cut with the larger die in the Dainty Doily Duo. My flower and leaves are cut with two new dies, Layered Rose Die-namics and the Medium Leafy Flourish Die-namics. I added a MFT Button to the center of the flower. My papers are new from My Mind's Eye, The Sweetest Thing Honey. (Always dangerous time for my pocketbook after CHA!)
When you open the card the gift card pops up in the middle. I stamped a sentiment from Finishing Flourishes and used the new Designer Label 4 STAX Die-namics.
This is how I made my slot to hold the gift card. I cut a piece of cardstock 5" by 11" Then I scored at 5", 5.5" and 6". I used one of the Retangular STAX Die-namics to cut the slot, and glued the ends together.
And here is my coordinating bookmark I made with the set and the Layered Rose Die-namics.
