Pocket silhouette christmas gifts.

I thought I'd share this last post with you before i take a break for Christmas, these are two of the book marks which i have given as gifts this year, I stamped them using the pocket silhouette stamp set with old olive and bravo burgundy ink, I used a blender pen with the ink pads to colour the stamps as i haven't got all the markers yet, but as you can see it works just as well,

I used some of my retired pewter hodge podge and any one that knows me knows you have to be extra special for me to part with this, I stamped the image onto very vanilla card stock then lightly drew around the pieces of hodge podge i wanted to use and cut out the image, I then threaded the ribbon through the hodge podge and attached it with my brads, then I adhered the images to the reverse of the book mark, ( I used Bostic multi purpose adhesive as it dries clear and has a rubbery consistency which makes any excess easy to peel off the front of the hodge podge if you are a messy crafter like me) but you could use what ever you like. To finish when the glue had completely dried i used an emery board (nail file) to shave away any edges which were visible from the front,
I really like the way they turned out and as you can tell old olive and bravo burgundy are fast becoming two of my this seasons favourite colours. ( well they do match my tree)

Merry Christmas!!!
