King & Queen Bookmarks

 The way this is folded it will open up like a card, but I didn't show that inside as it will say Happy Anniversary and whatever hand written message will apply.
I showed the important parts :-)
This fold is called a Diagonal Double Pocket Card. I got the instructions from Splitcoast Stampers. Once I had decided on the type of card fold I wanted, I went looking for free clip art. I found this couple. They were originally one piece, but had a neat line down the middle and cut apart just perfect after I resized them to bookmark size. They also started out in color, but I printed them in grayscale on Very Vanilla, hit some spots to highlight with red Prismacolor pencil, heat embossed crowns, darts, and ocular with gold, and went around the edges with my trusty Sharpie gold Paint Pen.
This is for the challenge at Gingersnap Creations:
