Big Shot BookMark Card

Today's post features the Big Shot machine. This versatile machine is used to die-cut shapes and to impress images into cardstock.  Embossing shapes and cutting shapes is so easy with this machine, I'm amazed each time I use it and I can't even remember what my stamping life was like before I bought it. To think ... when it first became available I considered not buying it because I couldn't imagine what I'd do with it. Now I can't imagine what I'd do without it!
The snowflakes on this card were created using an embossing folder and the blue strip with the scallop circle at the end was cut with a die. The cool thing is that the blue strip is a removable book mark.  Whoever you send the card to will remember you long after they read the card. This is a really easy project to assemble.

The white piece: Place a 4"x5.25" piece of white cardstock in the embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot. The sentiment is from a stamp set called: Thank You Kindly.

The blue strip: Use the Two Tags Die to cut the blue strip. Cut a piece of Marina Mist paper 2 1/4" by 8 1/2" and fold in half. Place it on the die just below the top cut mark so the fold will not be cut. See the image below. The snowflake is from a stamp set called Serene Snowflakes, stamped in Marina Mist.  remember to stamp before you punch!!  Punch the framing layer from Bashful Blue.
