This beautiful elephant will help you remember where you closed the pages of your book...
Hidden behind the oval window is a bookmark. I had several challenges here ... as part of my goodie package from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps I was sent some oval window cards and a variety of transparency tags .... hmmmm .... what to do with them.
I love elephants - and this one is a beauty - so rather than keep him hidden in this card I thought how fun it would be to use him as a bookmark. See the inside of the card below.
The card started out as a 5 X 7 and I trimmed it down to 4-3/4 By 6-3/4, then mounted it on red, then black cardstock.
Cut a small black and red panel for the bottom front (this covers the brads that I used on the inside) - cuttlebugged the red panel.
Used scallopped scissors to add the black trim and a Sizzix Corner Template for balance.
The K & Co. fabric brad is holding the bookmark in place and can easily be removed.
