My bookmark was cut out using the Silhouette from a cutting file but a plain oblong piece of card can be used.  I stamped and heat embossed the Oakhouse Studio dragon stamp in the center of  red card, dry embossed the circle bursts using a circle embossing diffuser and a large Crafters Companion embossing folder.  The raised areas were rubbed over with Treasure Gold.  The red card was mounted onto a white card and a gold tassel added.
