Wish Big!

Hello everyone!!

I posted this on my Instagram account a while back but thought I share it today as I am not in my craft room much this week.

I have a bookmark that I did up with the new Avery Elle Bookmark dies.  

I die cut one end and then turned the die around, extended the die and ran it through my Big Shot again.  By doing this it gave me matching ends.   I then scored and folded in half.  







I used the Gleeful Gardens stamp set from Lawn Fawn and stamped it with Ranger Archival ink along with the sentiment which is from the Avery Elle Storybook set.   I coloured in the images with distress inks (festive berries, fired brink, crushed olive, forest moss & walnut stain) and used Ranger enamel accents to fill in the spot on the mushroom and a white Gelly roll pen for the tiny dots.

I then glued down magnets with glossy accents.  I used one of those magnetic picture holders you get at the dollar store and cut it up.  They work great as they aren't so weak that the bookmark doesn't do the job and they aren't so strong that they rip the pages.



I then used some Lawn Fawn silver lawn trimmings and added it through the end.  And voila!  



Thanks for stopping by!

See you again soon.
