A gift in a greeting

I love to send cards that give a little more than just a greeting.  I love including a bookmark with my cards.  This latest creation incorporates the bookmark right into the design of the front of the card.  I got this idea while I was attending convention this year.  I got a cool card from Bev Laechelt as a swap.  She had used a cool little rooster on the tag and a textured foreground on the card.  I thought the idea was so cool that I started designing one of my own.

The card uses the Word Window punch as a little insert for a great bookmark made from the Two Tags Big Shot Die.  How excited would you be to not only get a wonderful little greeting from a friend, but also a bookmark to pop inside of your Stampin' Up! catalog to mark your favorite stamp set!!  If you want to see a close up of either photo, you can click to get a larger image.

What a neat idea. Two gifts in one - as I view hand made cards as a gift in itself. Do you mind if I case this one.
