A Bookmark Card + Manly Card with Car & 3 WINNERS from my Giveaway

Oopps before I start with my Post I forgot to tell who is the winner of my Giveaway at Last wednesday on this POST. (I am really sorry for the late winner post)

The winners are (yes my Son choose 3 names):

2. Donna T.
5. Shawna S.
20. Pia S. 

Many thanks ladies for your comment to my Friend´s (HN) sketch. You get this Cardinal Image from me per Email. I will contact you ladies :) 

Ok now for my card, I try to combine book mark and a card. Also if you see this picture this is a Tag Card.

Then if you open the Tag, it can be used as a book mark and the card can be save on the drawer :) (without the book mark the card looks not awesome, because I put 2 thin magnets there, the same at the book mark it is also 2 magnets behind it)

For my tag I used my very old first Hero Arts background stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder and sponged this lovely distress ink on it.

The sentiment I embossed too with white embossing powder. Its German Text and it means (similar) Happy Birthday To You.

Challenges for my card are:

CAS-ual Friday #144: (I choose Stenciling= The Card base witch checkered Stencil, Die Cutting =the Tag and Embossing= The Tag)

Seize The Birthday:

Stempel Sonne Challenge #152: Anything Goes

Creative Card Crew #98: Use Ribbon

Amusing Challenge: DIE CUTS

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Wrap it Up 


Another card I made is a manly card, its also a birthday card

This manly card is ordered by my Sister´s Boyfriend for his friend. He loves Car also I choose this oldtimer image from Hero Arts, and I choose two manly DP (and one embossed grey paper) behind the main Image. 

Challenges for my card are:

Cute Card Thursday #396: Anything Goes

  1. Darling bookmark and card,great way to attach it too, and like your masculine embossed card, very stunning! So excited to win the darling cardinal image your friend designed, our baseball team here in St. Louis, Missouri is the Cardinals so I will get good use out of this image. Thank you!

  2. Holy cow how did this happen!! thank you so much for the digi!!! I already have ideas for the little cardinals. Also I want to say how wonderful your manly card is designed. The colors and texture are just so fitting for this vintage card focal point... The layout is just perfect for this sketch and the colors just bring it all together.. I think I may have to join the challenge but I am sure this is a winner. Much love coming your way my friend.. Take care and all the best..

  3. Fabulous cards Monika. I love the removable tag with magnets..Loz

  4. You are a perfect card maker for Manly cards! That bookmark tag is awesome with beautiful BG and the other one is great too, love them!

  5. Love your book mark idea, what a fab gift this would make for a card lover!

  6. Great cards and the bookmark is fabulous. I bought your friends Cardinals as I really like it. Thanks for putting them onto a Etsy store. great idea.

  7. Beide Karten sind wunderbar!!!
    Die Lesezeichenkarte gefällt mir deshalb so gut, weil man das Lesezeichen auch wirklich ablösen kann, ohne die Karte oder das Zeichen zu beschädigen.
    Die männliche Karte ist sehr männlich , klar und gut geworden.
    Beides werden Gewinnerkarten - ich würde sie gewinnen lassen!!!
    Liebe Grüße, Flo
