Top Tip Tuesday Guest Designer Post #2

Hello and welcome here. This is my second week as a Guest Designer over on Top Tip Tuesday!! This week the Challenge is 1 for the Kids. The Tutorial shared this week is a Tear-off Bookmark Card. I have never made one before, and had alot of fun creating my card.

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5" (closed)

Many Halloween costumes are bright colours for the kids, so I went with non-traditional Fall/Halloween colours for my card. I do like to think out-of-the-box:) I coloured my image with Copics, and added pink rhinestones around the Lacy Oval.

The Sponsor's for this week are:

I want to give a big thank-you to Karen's Doodles for supplying the image I used, called Kitty Cat. Isn't it super cute!! I had so much fun colouring the image. Thanks so much!!!

Here are some more shots of the card as you open it!

The bookmark is folded in the card. Mine measures 2" across.

Here's the card fully open. I decided to decorate the bookmark like the front of the card. There's a close-up below.

I was resistant to digital stamps for a long time, but one of the perks is that you can resize your image, and crop out other parts. I opened the image in Publisher and cropped the little girl to exclude the cat. I then cropped the girl out and kept the cat, and added the saying 'I love to read'!
