Majestic Monarchs...

Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you a new project.

Did you hop along with us during our January Release Blog Hop? It's not too late to join in... be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along your journey because we're giving away (5) $15 store credits (1 winner will be chosen from each of the 5 blog hops).
The deadline to comment for a chance to win is midnight EST Friday, January 17th.  The list of winners will be announced on our website homepage by Monday, January 20th.

As I was playing with the new sets, I made a card, using Leafy Flourish Background & More, The Future, Majestic Monarchs clear stamp sets, and Monarch Die set. Here is the card:

 ...but I wasn't crazy about it, so I decided to turn it into a square card and a book mark! 

I just made another butterfly to decorate the bookmark(stamped the image on Vellum, heat embossed it with white embossing powder, then die-cut it with the coordinating die), stamped another sentiment on it, and adhered magnets strips inside. Hope you will give this a try. 

The background was sprayed with glimmer mist. 

Don't forget to do the hops and see the beautiful samples from the DT!

Thanks for stopping by,

Monika, what a wonderful idea!! Boy I've had times like that too - it's always nice to know there are "options" *laughing" Card + Bookmark = fabulous!

There are no mistakes in cardmaking! Thank goodness that is true, or we would miss out on great ideas such as yours!!
