This is what I believe to be the best bookmark ever!!! I have handmade the dangly apple by hand using fimo, it has been baked and varnished so it shines like a real apple, it is dangling from a silver chain which layd down the spine of the book so when it is on a shelf you can still see the bookmark. Its base is black cardstock and I have then printed out a red and a cream patterened paper, the cream is pink petticoat I got the red one for free online!!! I have then stamped and inked the edges of each paper to give it a distressed look. The bookmark is finished off with an apple cut from doodlecharms which again has been stamped and inked. I have then layered it with 3d foam onto its shadow and stuck it onto the bookmark.
I have been at the skulls again!!! This time I have cut out a really cute pink skull from Indie Arts, she has been stamped with a filagree image and layered onto DCWV dotty paper which I have stamped and inked around the edges. The card is A4 folded and it is also decorated on the inside, which I don't do very often unless it is requested!!!
Well I have spent some time on the cricut forums over the last week as i have had some well deserved time off work, and I have found more and more xmas cards. This has inspired me to get cracking on mine. So here is my first festive creation. It is A4 folder in half, the base card is a pearl brown, I have layered some papermania silk screened cardstock onto the base card ( it is very hard to see int the picture but the silk screened card is stunning ) The image is stamped with an inkadinkadoo reindeer stamp then heat embossed in gold ( again hard to see in the pic - next attempt will be in copper not gold ) the stamped image was layered onto a scrap of the silk screenec card then layered onto some bargin gold glitter card!!! It has all been brought together with a cheap gold bow i have been refusing to throw away and some skeleton leaves i had free with a magazine a long time ago!!!
