I decided to make 2 bookmarks to make your day and I really hope they do...
I have so much origimi paper that I often think its a shame that I don't get to use it as the colours and styles are amazing. I'm glad I finally got an opportunity to do just that with the background.
This lady I cut around and stuck on top of the flowery background. It looks a little plain so I added the red borders.... if it wasn't a bookmark I would have added all kinds of embellishments and ribbon but its already has enough layers. The only thing that annoys me is that this lady is blurred but the quality was like that when I bought it, only in the shop it wasn't so obvious due to their lighting etc... Still its fun to work with them.
Next stop is valentines day which is still a week away but I actually made this first and then realised it was Chinese new year this week... but its nice to get double the treats right?
I started with my heart rubberstamp which basically looks like the top half of this bookmark. I still think that top part is missing something but I don't know what... I really hate that feeling.
I used my paper punch for the hearts, stuck the white card on to red card as it needed a little something so the border works nicely. It still looked a bit bland so I used a gold gel pen around the edges. Its times like this that I wish I had an embossing kit but I just think I have way too much craft stuff already without adding more.
If you would like these bookmarks, just start with 'make my day' and I will see you next week to let you know who will receive it.
These are now making the day of someone in Germany!
