Rose Panel Bookmark

Hello fellow crafters! I hope you are having a marvelous summer! For the July theme at Die Cut Diva's we have chosen Anything But a Card, sponsored by
Dies R Us - enter so you have a chance to win a $10 voucher to the store!  One of my past Design Teams was on a blog dedicated {and aptly named} to Anything But a Card.  Unfortunately, the challenge closed and I haven't been creating as many projects other than cards.  However, this challenge has gotten my muse going again!

What I Used to Make my Project
White Card Base
Tattered Lace Rose Panel, #D307 {any of these would work as well}
STAMPlorations Literary Caffeine-ations, #STMP1155
Black Card
White Brads {stash}
Handheld Circle Hole Punch {1/8" and standard size}
Asian Inspired Tassel {stash}

I began this bookmark by cutting the Rose Panel out of black card, mounted the cut out onto a piece of white card which I then trimmed.  I punched small holes, using the handheld 1/8" circle punch, and attached white brads just to add some embellishment.  The sentiment was stamped onto white card, then trimmed and attached to the upper portion of the bookmark.  Lastly, I used a very old, Asian inspired, tassel to finish off the project.  Since I was making this for The Man, I didn't want it to be too feminine but I really wanted to use the Rose Panel die since it is the perfect size for a bookmark. I also attached a strip of cardboard to the back of the bookmark to give it a bit more stability. 

Thank you SO much for stopping by! I hope you and yours are having a wonderful summer - today was the first day that we here in Colorado have had a break from the heat!  Maybe you have had to stay indoors because of the weather where you are; this is a perfect time to get out some of your dies and make Anything But a Card to enter it in the Die Cut Diva's July Challenge! I hope to see you there!  Fondly, Christi
