Recycled Envelope Bookmark



I cut a heart shape from the corner of a used envelope to create this bookmark. I love to recycle and re-purpose items around the house when I can. The little elf on this bookmark is a rubber stamp called Gobby Lin from Stampotique. Isn't he devilishly cute? I used inks and splatters to add color to the plain white envelope. The stars are paper punched from design paper.

I am entering this bookmark in the following challenges:

Stampotique - #103 use an envelope
Whimsy Stamp - #60 shaped card
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
613 Avenue Create - anything goes
Digi Darla - #66 fancy fold/no square cards
ABC Challenge - O is for open
A&T Emerald Faery - #44 dies/punches
