From the latest Doodlefactory set, Elbo, from the Creatures II set has a great pair of hands that can hold a pile of books! (Books and sentiment from SA's Boudoir set.)
My card base is 5.5 x 11 inches. Score at 4.25 and then make a perferated score line at 8.5 inches. This last section becomes a tear off bookmark. Perfect for a bookwormy sister!
