I saw this card made on this blog and wanted to try it out. The one thing that I did differently was to use a sewer's tracing wheel instead of the special tool that she used. Cut the paper 4 1/4" x 11". Score at 4 1/4" then on the other side score with the tracing wheel 2 1/2" in. You can either use the fiskars cutter to help with the measurements or just use a ruler and hold it tight. That's how I did it but then I tried the way mentioned in the blog and it really was easier. So here is the card and bookmark:
I used Tilda in jeans. She is sitting on a piece of paisley grosgrain ribbon. Tilda is colored with copics and her wings have stickles applied. The background is a raised paisley done with a Cuttlebug perfectly paisley embossing folder. The buttons are tied with scrappers floss. The red paper is from basic grey. The little bow is tied with a narrow red organza ribbon.
Here is the inside with the bookmark ready to be detached.
The blue lines are done with a copic marker and then a 1/4" strip of the basic grey paper. The organza ribbon is stapled at the top so it can stick out of the page of the book you are reading. (I'm rereading the Hobbit just now). And then you can see the entire card/bookmark opened up:
Hope you enjoyed.
