I started with two images from the June 2012 release Man o Man ephemera sheet from Gecko Galz. I resized and fussy cut the man for the front of my card. I resized another image from the set for a bookmark.
I cut cardstock 11"x5-1/2', scored at 4-1/2" and 2" to create a tri-fold card that would include a bookmark for my avid reader dh. The first photo is the true color of the crumb cake Stampin' Up cardstock. Have no idea why the other photos look more gray--all taken same time, same place. Tim Holtz Alterations folder on Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper, highlighted with Stampin' Up Crumb Cake ink. Tim Holtz Ideaology numeral.
You will note that I attached the bookmark with two glue dots so that it can be removed from the card easily. Tim Holtz ideaology sprocket gear and Kaisercraft copper pearls.
Both outside and inside sentiments done on my computer. I layered this sentiment onto a black ATC which I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Tim Holtz Alterations sprocket gear folder.
Overview of entire tri-fold card:
