Summer is the perfect time to relax and read a good book so don't forget to have lots of bookmarks on hand to save your place when you are reading. Becca Feeken has a new Filigree Bookmark/Tag die from her Vintage Elegance collection with Spellbinders and it's really gorgeous. I used some papers that i had in my stash to create mine using my favorite Robin's Egg blue and black combo.
This one is super easy to make so you can do them up in a afternoon for friends and even your bookclub members. What a fun surprise to bring each of them a summer bookmark designed for each of them. Mine is made using black cardstock for the back layer which i cut 2 of and glued them at the top so that it can fit over the pages nicely. Then i cut a piece of Bo Bunny paper for the top lace piece and another to glue my top to for a base. Then i glued it to the top black piece and finished it with some pretty silk ribbon and roses from my stash. And of course i had to add a few rhinestones to make it a little more sparkly.
Here you can see a closeup of the dies pretty details. It's amazing how Becca creates such beautiful and intricate dies and i love also how she make other pieces to tie into them. This die also
has a beautiful pocket that you can create for a card and then give you bookmark.
It's called the Vintage Elegance Filigree Pocket Etched Die set.
And this is just a closeup of my flowers that i added. I also put just a touch of supefine glitter on them too. I love having roses that keep forever.
