Red and Gold: Flourish Bookmark

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello Crafters and welcome from Laurie to this current challenge on the Portal:  Red and Gold.  Such sumptuous colors that work with so many themes.

For this one, I made a bookmark using the Daisy Flourish stamp from Lost Coast Designs.
This was very simple, but I love the elegant feel of the gold embossing.

 I stamped my flourish with Versamark embossing ink onto a piece of black card stock.  I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder then heat embossed it.  I then restamped the daisy parts of the stamp onto a scrap of black and heat embossed it with red embossing powder.  I cut out the red flowers and glued them atop the gold ones.  

Next I trimmed up my edges evenly and corner rounded all four corners.  I layered this with a piece of gold paper and rounded those corners as well.  Final step was to punch a hole at the top in the middle and thread some gold cord through the hole.  A simple bookmark using an absolutely gorgeous stamp from Lost Coast.
