Bookmark and Book Gift Card

My sister is a big reader, so I thought it would be fun to make her a bookmark and get her an Amazon gift card for her birthday and create a cute card to go with them!  I used Papertrey Ink's Bibliophile stamp and die sets to make the books on my cards.  I love this set!  There are a lots of great quotes included, along with just fun sayings, like the one I spelled out on my card.  I added a teacup that I cut with the Cricut Love You a Latte cartridge and some embossed heart "steam" made with a die from My Creative Time's All You Need is Coffee.

On the inside of the card, I used MCT's Stitched Gift Card Pocket to hold the gift card.

I used PTI's Stitched Bookmark Dies to make my bookmark, stamping a quote from Bibliophile onto rustic cream cardstock to make the innermost layer.  I stitched the whole thing together with ECRU DMC embroidery floss, sewing in a little PTI topnotch twill ribbon at the top.
