I made a bookmark and card set for my project today. The bookmark is designed to fit over a page or pages, with a “flap” on either side. I cut the larger die from patterned paper and then from card stock, adhering the two together for strength. Then I cut out the top layer and added some Die-namics Circle STAX layers along with a Die-namics Mini Doily Circles die cut to dress it up :) I stamped the sentiment on a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX die cut and the open book on one of the circles.

For the card, I stamped that gorgeous sentiment on a
Die-namics Textile Rectangle die only die cut. It was larger than the sentiment so I added some patterned paper and a sweet little ribbon to the bottom, then popped it up on foam dots. Some pearly flourishes under the sentiment panel finish it off.

Here’s a close up of the book mark:
