Corner Bookmark - Wednesday 9th May

Good Morning Friends,

Today's project is a corner bookmark, which I made on Monday (another wet Bank Holiday!), to enter into Lindyloo's blog challenge draw. Linda showed some of her creations last week, with a link to the instructions, so I thought I would have a go...

The criteria was for a Corner or Ribbon bookmark, in Pink, Black (or grey) and White. I enjoy making black and white cards, but it was really quite hard for a small bookmark and knowing I only had Monday afternoon to design and make it as there is so much to do this week,  this is what I came up with:

For instructions on how to make this bookmark visit also visit Linda's blog for examples. a really good idea and if you are selling crafts what a great little gift...I'm also thinking a gift within a greeting card, what a super topper.

I used Spellbinders Heart Squares, Chateau Gate(as a window) and a border die from Parisian Accents. The stamp used is from HOTP Sweet Tweets, which I had free with a magazine some time ago. I just added a little pink blossom and highlights on the birds.
A pink bow finished it off. 

I must say thanks to Linda for letting her blog followers know about this little gem of an idea, when I get a few moments, I will make some more and upload them!

Thanks for stopping by,
Carole X

  4. Hi Carole,
    I am so sorry I haven't been by to see you, I have been up to my eyes with the First Communion preparations for my niece, I still haven't finished the cake topper yet and I am shattered. Never mind aye, it will keep me out of mischief.
    WOW, this is delightful and I adore the way you have created a window for the little bird image. You are so clever and I love the added stitching too. As to thanking me, I have to thank you for taking part, you are a star. I do hope you manage to make some more, I would love to see what you come up with next.
    All the best Linda x
