a bookmark card

It’s back-to-school time for the Ribbon Carousel Crew as we share our school themed projects all month long.  The Week 4 crewmates have cards to share on the Ribbon Carousel blog today.  I decided to use the Sweet ‘n Sassy Bookmark Bits & Pieces and coordinating Bookmarks & More dies to make a bookmark card.

I actually got out my sewing machine and stitched a little vellum pocket to the front to slip the bookmark into.  Some crochet thread was added to the button.

The butterfly on the bookmark has some Stickles to make the card a bit sparkly.

E-readers are so popular now, but I still like to hold a book and turn the pages by hand.  And you can’t use a cute bookmark with an E-reader.  😉

I even stamped the inside of the card…and the front of the envelope…

In case you noticed that this is not an A2 sized card, you are right.  I used a standard #6 3/4 business envelope so my card is 3 1/2″ x 6 1/4″ (start with 6 1/4 x 7).  If you normally use 12″ paper, you could make a 3 1/2 x 6 card to fit this size envelope.

Come join our challenge and you may win a Ribbon Carousel of your own!
