Paper Cranes Card and Bookmark Set

Today's card is a single layer, relying on masking to selectively Distress Ink a background. I then stamped paper cranes in two rows, added a sentiment in white, and added lines with a white gel pen.

I used a normal piece of cardstock and some temporary adhesive for the mask, so when I was done, I was left with an extra panel of Distress Inked paper. I ran it through my embossing machine, punched out a hole, and cut both corners to turn it into a tag. To give it a more finished look, I attached a hole reenforcer and some twine.
