Artful Inkables :: Think Ink #26

For my Artful INKables post today I would like to share with you a card that I made for the Current Think Ink Challenge....

This challenge is brought to us by the lovely Tanya and she wants everyone to

Make a Non-standard card (ie. stair-step, gate fold, etc.) And you MUST USE COLOR PURPLE

Mmm... non standard card.. that's reasonably tricky for me.. but the purple part?? LOVE it! Thanks Tanya!

I saw at one point a card with a bookmark attached to the side that you could tear off and I thought it would be fun to make... there is a tutorial on SCS HERE .. but I just used my CM trimmer that has a scoring and a perforating blade you can switch in and out with the normal blade.

So here is my card + bookmark which I have made using the Sew You stamp set from Artful Inkables

It's a pretty overcast day here and I am still trying to work out how best to use Guy's new light tent so sorry for the less than beautiful photos!!

POP on over to Artful Inkables blog for more inspiration and to enter your own non standard cards!! :D
