Thank-you card and Bookmark

I do like dry embossing --but it gets a bit tedious when producing multiple cards.  So Dee and I went shopping during the Christmas Break and bought me a toy!  (One of the reasons Diane likes to visit is because we go shopping!)

I got a Sizzix Texture Boutique...

I used this new toy for the 'thank-you' notes I made after Christmas.

  • cream cardstock base (approx 6" x 5")
  • narrow blue ribbon
  • blue eyelet
  • envelope- regular letter sized - No. 6 3/4
  • glue
  • blue paper

  • Sizzix Texture Boutique
  • Sizzix Snowflake embossing folder
  • Sizzix Snowflake Paddle Punch
  • eyelet setter
  • hammer
  • Fiskars Rotary Trimmer with straight blade and wave blade
  • computer

  1. Using the computer, print the inside sentiment and "made by..." information on to the card base, line up the printing for a 6" x 3" card
  2. Place the card base into the embossing folder
  3. Following the Texture Boutique directions, sandwich the card and embossing folder between the pressure plates and insert into the machine
  4. Roll the packet through the machine
  5. Removed card from the pressure plates and embossing folder
  6. Using the Fiskars Rotary Trimmer, straight cut the back of the card to slightly over 3"
  7. Using the Fiskars Rotary Trimmer, wave cut the front of the card at 3"

  1. Using the trimmed off piece of the front of the card, wave cut the straight edge to make the bookmark (both long edges should now be wave cut)
  2. Using the eyelet setter and hammer, insert blue eyelet at the top of the bookmark
  3. Thread narrow blue ribbon through the eyelet and tie knot at ends

Directions -Envelope:
  1. Using the paddle punch and hammer, punch a snowflake into the flap of the envelope
  2. On the inside of the flap, glue a small square of blue paper to stabilize and highlight the punched shape
