Today’s project was one of those happy accidents that happen in my studio from time to time. I’d been designing a card and for one of the layers cut a 2″ strip from the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. After trimming the piece down for my card I realised that the leftover piece was the perfect width for a bookmark. I already had my heat embossing tools out for the other project so I didn’t need ink. All I had to do was choose an appropriate sentiment and put it all together.
With the patterned paper already cut to 2″ wide, I trimmed it down to 5-1/2″ long. Then with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I attached it to a 2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White Card. After that I shaped the top using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
Next I used VersaMark ink to stamp the “Thank you snow much” sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set. I sprinkled the sticky ink with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder then tapped off the excess. Finally once I’d removed some stray specks of powder I melted the rest using my Heat Tool set on 2 (high).
To finish, I threaded some Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon through the slot and tied it in a simple knot.
Even though I had to spend time doing the embossing, this has to be one of the fastest projects ever to make.

BUNDLE BONUS – I bought the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set in a ‘bundle’ with the coordinating So Many Snowflakes Dies (not used today). This meant I saved 10% off the cost of buying the two items separately. I’ve included a link to the bundle in case you want to explore that option.
