Saturday card: bookmark

Today I am sharing a card with another new stamp by

It is the "Cloisonné Nonagon" stamp set.
It comes with these two stamps.

This week I was inspired by one of the cards
of  Deborah, the Card Captain of this week
on our Yahoogroup. She showed a bookmark card.
So today I share with you my version.

I uised  a panelof kraft colored paper for this card
and stamped the nonagon stamp randomly with 
brown ink. With some holografic gold dot stickers
 I decorated the stamped images.

Then on ivory white paper (1,5 x 5 inch) I stamped
the image again and embossed it with copper
embossing powder. I made sure that the middle
part ( the circle) was centered on the
bookmark. On top I stamped the circle and embossed
it too. Below a sentiment was stamped inside the circle.

In the center of the circle I pnched a 
hole and added some embroidery thread
as decoration for the bookmark,
Also on the bookmark I added a few of the 
holographic gold stickers.

Here you see the finished card.
Before adding the kraft panel to the
card a few cuts were made to add the
bookmark to the card. Only after
that you add the panel to the card.

Great gift card for booklovers!
Have a creative day!

Love how you have used the stamps, and the colours you have used and how you 'swapped' them for the bookmark. You have inspired me to make a bookmark for a card front feature.
