Just a quick post this morning to show you a bookmark card I taught in a class last Tuesday.
This is the card when it's closed and you can see that the bookmark itself forms the right-hand part of the front. The beautiful geisha and the wonderful sentiment are from Clarity Stamps and I thought that the geisha teamed beautifully with these gorgeous Basic Grey Kioshi papers. They've been around for a while now but I still love the colours and designs in them. The geisha's kimono is paper pieced with DP from the Prima 'Sparkling Spring' collection. I thought it would be rather nice to give her a patterned kimono rather than a plain one just cooured with Copics, my usual medium.
Here is the inside of the card:
More Clarity Stamps in the cherry blossom and the verse. I just added a little colour with water colour pencils to add interest and a butterfly punched, like the one on the front, with a Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch. The bling was added with Glamour Dust.
One final peek at the bookmark itself:
This card is really easy to make, it's basically a gate fold card with the fold off centre and then the bookmark is held in place with bands of ribbon (from my stash). Having said that, it did take me a while to work out how it was going to be put together. It's one thing organising a bookmark card class and another actually designing the card itself, methinks!!
Thank you so much for your visit and your comments if you leave one - I really do love to read them.
I'll be back tomorrow with the next challenge card.
