Corner Bookmark Card

This is a great card for a teacher or anyone who loves to read. 
It is one of those many layer cards,  but easy to make. 
It is one of the cards we made at club last night.
I used the level 2 Apple Blossom set.  I saw this collage card online,
 but I cannot find it again, to post who inspired me.  Thank you for sharing. 
I didn't know what to do with this set once I got it!  :)

The bookmark is made with the retired Big Shot Petal Card Die.
Easy to cut, fold, and stamp!

Card Sketch
Early Espresso base layer  8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25"
Certainly Celery 4" 5.25"
Whisper White with stamped images 3.75" x 5"

Center Image
Marina Mist 2.5" x 3.5"
Certainly Celery 2.25" 3.25"
Whisper White with stamped phrase 2" x 3"

Circle with flower image 1 3/8" punch
small flower first punched with 3/4" punch then trimmed


Bookmark
1 petal Card Die cut
1 4.5" square of Whisper White - Cut CS square on diagonal.
Emboss 1 of the triangles.
1 Tab punch
Attach brad to tab punch before attaching to folded petal card base.
1.75" Marina Mist Scallop Circle
1 3/8" Early Espresso Circle
1.25" Circle Whisper White - stamp image on this before attaching

*****

If you don't have this die you can still make a corner book mark.
Cut a 5" square of CS - Score from corner to corner on the diagonal and cut out one triangle section.  Remove section marked with an X.  See photo below.  Fold over 2 opposite flaps and glue down to create a triangle corner box to slide over page.


Cut 1 6.5" square of Whisper White
Cut CS square on diagonal, then emboss 1 of the triangles.
Lay Whisper White on Certainly Celery Triangle.  lining up tips. 
DO NOT GLUE DOWN YET!  Cut tip off of both. 
For some reason it fits on the page better. 
Center and attach Whisper White CS on Certainly Celery Triangle.

To decorate I used:
1.75" Certainly Celery Scallop Circle
1 3/8" Early Espresso Circle
1.25" Circle Whisper White - stamp image on this before attaching

Hope you get a chance to make one!

Happy Stamping!
