The wonderful team over at Pals Paper Arts have redesigned their website and it looks fantastic.  Their challenge this week is “Day into Evening”.  First you make a basic card and then you dress it up.  Fun!  My idea for the dress up was to add a little something to the card…a corner bookmark.  For the basic card, I found a cool layout over at Unscripted Sketches (their sketch #67).  I missed the deadline but I thought this was worth trying.  I pulled out my Friends Never Fade set again and the coordinating Greehouse Gala DSP.  Here is the result:

The card itself is pretty basic and would be lovely to send all by itself.  But to “dress it up” a bit, I created a surprise when you open it.  I found a tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers a while ago for these corner bookmarks and knew that I wanted to try them for my club.  I found that the 4″x4″ bookmark they show was a bit too big, so I modified it to 3″ square.  After playing with the decoration of the bookmark, my square turned into a 3″x2 5/8″ rectangle.  The Espresso piece is 2 7/8″ long which allowed for the perfect scallop with my Scallop Trim Border Punch and the Espresso square (diamond) is 1 1/2″ square.  I secured everything on the bookmark with Sticky Strip to make really sure that it stays together.  Here is the dressed up inside of the card:

I used this wonderful 1/8″ Taffeta again and it is just the right size for a little addition like this.  I’m not sure who will get this card yet but it is nice to have a card with a little present, all in one!  In keeping with my Operation Write Home Challenge, I made a second card for my ever growing box of cards to send to our heroes overseas.  Thanks for stopping in today.  Hope you have a great weekend!
