Elzybell Set

Well, after seeing all of the adorable Elzybell cards yesterday, I just had to make at least one thing out of each Elzy I had, so here it is — a card with a coordinating bookmark in a sleeve — I only have 3 Elzy images and one sentiment — so now they’ve all been inked!!


The card uses DP on the lower portion and white on top. There is black velvet ribbon on the seam joining the two, but you can barely see it, as it is pretty well covered up with my taffeta bows — oh well, I know it’s there! The image was stamped, colored and then circle punched out. This image is rectangular in shape, and the little black snowflakes were also left in a rectangular pattern, which just didn’t look right on the round punchout, so I just drew in more little black snowflakes to match with the fine tip of my marker — you can’t even tell!!! I then sponged the edges, mounted on a scallop, added the white gel pen dots and mounted it onto the card. Added a ticket corner punched sentiment on the bottom, with brads, and done!!! I love the little pink bows on the side on this — they just look so cute and girlie!!!


Here’s the bookmark out of the sleeve – cute, huh? I just can’t stop making these silly little bookmarks and sleeves — they are so quick and fun to do!!! And it’s just nice to have a little something extra to give along with the card. Click here to see the instructions on how to make the sleeves. This one is wider than the one in the tutorial — you just have to adjust the measurements depending on how wide/long you make your bookmark. And the bookmark is rather self-explanatory, I think. The oval top is adhered to the bookmark with double sided tape, ribbon run through the top — the ribbon reminds me of Elzy’s hair!!!

    These are so cute, too, Sharon. Some little girl will be lucky– maybe some big girl too (hint, hint!!!)

  4. These are adorable! My daughter would absolutely love them. I find that the color combination of black and pink are very striking. I also really like all the different ways that you finish off your bookmarks. I ordered one of those bookmark corner punches that you referred to, and am hoping it comes soon!
