Blast off!!! Bookmark/card combo By jen t.

Hi all! Happy Tuesday! I am popping on today to share a card/bookmark that i made using the kaisercraft blast off collection. I first saw the awesome long cutout with the cute aliens on one of the patterned papers and thought how cool would that be to fit a business size envelope. So i trimmed it slightly to fit and then used that as a starting point. I 
Then added the red paper behind it to mat the cutout. Next, i added the word and number stickers for the sentiment and outlined it with my navy blue marker. Next, i fussy cut out two spaceships from another piece of patterned paper and set aside. I then wrapped the top of the card with twine taking note to leave a long piece to glue and sandwich the two spaceship pcs i just cut out so they would dangle from the card and i added a google eye to the middle alien to finish the front. On the backside, i cut another piece of red paper and added another long block cutout with space to but a note  and added two strips on the top and bottom with another patterened paper to add more interest. Lastly, with letters from my stash i added a reminder for the recipient to use it as a book mark. For the envelope i just added a border sticker just to fancy it up a bit.  



What i used: 
Kaisercraft blast off collection papers and stickers
Google eye
Red and white martha stewart twine
Spectrum noir navy blue marker
Scotch adhesive
Red Mini letters from my stash 
Standard business envelope
