Firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to Megan J of My Merry Card Corner, who has started following me - her work is gorgeous, please pop over and visit her!!
I wanted to make a card for an older woman (no, not me... ), I had all afternoon, and I had hoped to make a couple of cards, this one did not co-operate, and it was all that I got done.
I had already decided to make a card with a bookmark attached, and I wanted to use these stamps from the ODBD Grace's Hope set.
I cut the bookmark to size, sprayed it with Magicals Spray, Blue Hawaian Blue, then stamped and embossed it with gold, and added the gold, die cut corners.
Here you can see the shimmer from the spray, and the gold splatters that I added later.
To finish the card I die cut and stenciled, then sprayed three s/b Bitty Blossoms, then wiped some gold paint over the petals to add some more shimmer.
To finish I added a blue and gold bow to the ribbon 'keeper' for the bookmark,
and a gold and blue tassel - I kept the tassel small so it would not mark the book pages, and where I attached it, I had already hidden a metal eyelet behind a small aperture in tip of the die cut.
The final detail was the gold embossed sentiment.
I am linking this to:
