Card and Matching Bookmark


Here is a card I have made (and designed !) which holds a bookmark as a gift.


Here are the card and bookmark shown separately. This is the first time I have tried to make a card like this so I am entering it in the "Created By Hand " challenge which is to try something new.
I would also like to enter this in the "Daring Cardmakers" challenge which asked us to add something extra to match our cards.
If you want to copy this you will need to put the ribbon slightly to the right on the front of your card so that the bookmark sits under it evenly...also dont put the brads in the ribbon too tight so that if you give the bookmark a slight twist the brads hold it in place on the front of the card.
I hope you like this idea !

This is so delicate and very useful at the same time. As a reader, I am always looking for bookmarks and there is such pleasure in using ones that are this lovely.
