Bookmark Card

The Bee Crafty challenge this fortnight is to:

Make a bookmark

There is a free image of a stack of books that can be downloaded and this is what I have used as my bookmark. I've also made a card for the bookmark to go with plus this is now earmarked for a Birthday in November - see - getting organised!

I've used digital papers from About A Boy freebie download from Vicki's blog which I have resized to fit the card blank. The bookmark isn't actually quite finished as I want to laminate it so that the image and letters don't get spoilt.
I've coloured the image with watercolour pencils and the lettering is cut using my Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set. The reverse of the book mark is quite plain but I may change that before I laminate it.

The scrabble tile lettering on the front of the card is Anita's - it was a bargain £1 so I just had to have it!

  • Backing papers: About A Boy download from Vicki
  • Image: Free download from Bee Crafty, coloured with watercolour pencils
  • Dies: Cuttlebug Baby Face Alphabet
  • Stamps: Anita's Scrabble Tile stamps
