Save Your Spot !

 Am back with a  simple elaborate card oxymoron you may say , yes! that is exactly what this card is!
It was made for a  girl who is crazy about books , so since I always give her a gift card to a book store, on her birthday, I thought of adding this card with the bookmark  to make it a little more personal.

Now about the simple elaborate part....simple because it involved just one stamp set and die , the colors were set thanks to ColorQ  the sketch was ready, courtesy Retro Sketches#5  ,..the elaborate because it involved quite a bit of die cutting, stamping and stiching.


 The design is such that once the bookmark is removed , the card would still hold good and not be bare......
I have incorporated a lot of text into the design to get the feel of a book,

 I used a round text stamp to include the round corner elements in the sketch

 Being the hoarder that I am , it gives me great pleasure when I put those treasures to work , here I used the packaging, the clear acrylic sheets that PTI sends their stamps on,  for the bookmark, so I guess I can share it with The Moxie Fab World  The Don't Throw It Away Challenge

.......even the burlap twine is from a burlap rice sack..but more about that in my next post!

 The Bookmark:
 Orange felt and clear acrylic layer on top to protect it

White cardstock and clear acrylic layer

Supplies; White cardstock, Stamps-All booked up,Inside and out -birthday-PTI , Dies- bookmark, butterfly-PTI, glassine bag-Michaels,  craft felt, black ink-Studio G, Staz On, burlap twine, clear acrylic from packaging.
