Hopped in with a Bookmark card

Card with a detachable bookmark was the swap card my group did this month, and I had a lot of fun making it. The bookmark is magnetic and I saw it on Doodle Buddies Naush has some great projects, I'd recommend giving her a look-see. Her magnetic bookmark tutorial is here.

As you can see, it's a multi-fold card, giving me a lot of space to play with. It was my first go at using a banner, and it's really a cheat as I used the cut-off from my cardstock - which is a rik-rak cardstock stack. I've also stamped all over the place on this project. Having just discovered my 'skill' has improved, I've become a little addicted. My papers are Kay & Co. A stack of 360 sheets which I had in a wonderful offer of £9.99. I love the papers. My stamps are clear sets from Papermania. The cute bunny from one and the sentments and flowers from a second set called Honey and Hugs. Die-cuts are nesties and colourants promarkers and Lyca pencils. 

A couple of inside leaf shots.
The large rik-rak in the center panel is 'waste' from the rik-rak stack.

Front of Bookmark.
Inside. I've hidden the magnetic strip under the paper.

I'd like to entre this in the Challenge at Crop Shop for Unique Folds
