Crack Open a Tale

I really wanted to start the Christmas season off by going to see the Nutcracker ballet. Things didn't work out, so my reverie while crafting will have to do. Look how cute, a Nutcracker bookmark!
JFFRS Stamptangle Nutcracker image stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed with Ranger Ink Superfine Clear Embossing Powder. Image colored with Sharpie markers and a little sparkle was added with Diamond and Yellow Stickles. Eyes and teeth were colored with a Signo White Gel Pen. Card stock from the Club Scrap Literature collection. Tassel made from embroidery thread.
I may have to make a few more of these bookmarks to give as little Christmas gifts or to add as tags on presents. So perfect for Christmas reading with a cup of cocoa!
