Wedding Design using Memory Box dies

I love the delicate design dies made by Memory Box.  
This particular die below is named 'Cherished'.  
These dies are approx 5 1/2" long and they vary in width.
I used it on a card I was creating for a wedding I recently attended.
I cut the original border in white to confirm the design and its dimensions.
This photo shows the back of the Cherished die cut from Purple card stock and a
dhered with double sided tape along the edge of a white frame made from Spellbinders scalloped oval dies.  
I cut the white card stock frame by combining two scalloped dies,  one1/4" smaller than the other. 
I then place pop dots to the back of the frame to raise that edge to make a dimensional look to the card.

 Using the solid cut out from the second scalloped die, I placed a stamp "Our your wedding day"and a bride and groom sticker which I coloured in with alcoholic markers to add definition to the sticker.  I first used the frame to help place the insert scalloped die cut to the card base before adhering it with double sided tape.  The frame was then put in place with the Cherished die design enhancement resembling an overlay.  I love how the embossing on the frame caused a tiny outline allowing the purple are stock base to show through.
I embellished the edges of the frame with tiny pearls and added heart stickers  to the stamped title as well as to the right of the framed edge.
I later added a lace bow to the left outer edge of the scalloped frame.  I felt it needed that 
extra touch.  I am sorry I do not have a photo for you, I had the enveloped 
sealed before realizing I had not taken a final photo.

Book Mark card using Our Daily Bread stamps.

This is a card I made for a ODBD challenge using their stamp set. I wanted to make something useful as well as something that could be sent  to a friend needing a little encouragement.

The card is a  5X7" brown card stock base with the cream  card stock  measuring 41/2 X 6 1/2".  I coloured the stamp with Premium pencils, added the gold trim brown ribbon, then stamped the Faith wording below the ribbon with a Memento black ink pad.  The slit for the bookmark was made at the top and the bottom  of the brown ribbon which hides nicely when the bookmark is removed. I stamped the same greeting under the bookmark so when it is removed the card still contains the words of encouragement.  The book Mark background is 2" X 6" and the cream overlay  measures 1 1/2" X 5 1/2".  I stamped only a corner of the butterfly stamp to enhance the bookmark, giving it a little colour .
After slipping the bookmark in place I added the little bow as an added embellishment to give a finished touch.  I hope this inspires you to create your bookmark keepsake for someone special.
