BSS-Monday Challenge-Card w/Calendar Bookmark

Hello. Welcome to Monday Morning! Monday is the day I do the Challenge for my local Stamp Store, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. Today I have worked up a card, with a pocket to hold a matching bookmark, that is also a calendar!!

The card is 5x7 when finished.
Cut your cardstock 7 x 11 3/4 inches
Score in 1 3/4 inches from the right and fold inward
Score at 5 inches in from the left, fold in half
Decorate the front of the card as you like.
I used a hanging heart stamp from Outlines, Paper is My Minds Eye
The 1 3/4 inch fold should be secured just on the top and bottom edges to hold
the bookmark.
To make the bookmark, right click on the calendar above and print target.
Cut out each strip close to the edges. Mount on matching papers, Jan-June
on one side and July-Dec on the other. Slip your finished bookmark
into the pocket and add a sentiment inside (mine is Hero Arts)
Hope you have a chance to try this. Have a great Monday. Thanks for
stopping by. Until tomorrow.....................
