For Dad

Dear Ones~
I decided this year to make my dad a book mark instead of an Easter card. He is an avid reader, and he will be able to use the book mark all year long.

Here's the result~~~
I got to play with some foiling with this one. I took the cross die and made a copy of it with my laser printer. Then I cut the shape out and foiled it through my laminator. I think Becca Feekan came up with the idea. You can see her tips HERE.
This book mark is a folder with two magnets on the inside bottom. You place the book page inside the folder and let the magnets grab each other to hold the book mark in place.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Gold Foil Card Stock from my Stash
Spellbinder Cross Die
Recollections Espresso Patterned Paper Stack
Minc Gold Foil
Foiled Computer Generated Greeting
Laser Printer 
Scotch Laminator

This will be entered in the Double "D" Challenge,
