A little Bookmark

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you are all doing great and staying warm! Arctic  weather here again, we got snowed in on Saturday and Sunday, and now it's bitterly cold again.

I had a chance to create something this weekend, and thought I'd get out the cute "playful kittens" set from Whimsy stamps, and create a cute corner bookmark with it.




There are lots of tutorials on how to do it. Can't believe how simple it was to make. Here is a tutorial by Iris. Her verion is slightly different, I didn't cut any of my corners off, but I used the same steps up until that part.

I colored the image  using copic markers. Glitter was added to the heart. The corner I added to the bookmark was done using Whimsy's Lace Doily Corner Die 2.


These are so quick to make too, perfect for little valentines, and you could even hide a little wrapped candy inside. I am giving this one to my daughter. Will make a boy version for my son soon too!

Would love to play along in a few challenges:

A Creative Need -  Die cuts/ Punches

Have a great day!!
