Recently a friend lost his Mom, and we needed a card. Since I've been trying to shift the Crapalanche, used some bits & pieces (AKA snippets) for today's card.
- Card front is recycled from an advertising card sent to us by Hallmark. The back side of the card had this design, so saved it for future use. The front side of the Hallmark card was a birthday card for DH. Used the scorpal to add double score lines at the bottom edge and along the border, but the side score lines don't show in the photo.(does this qualify as a snippet? Perhaps)
- Butterfly was embossed with a old brass stencil, sponged, colored (?don't remember how!), then glossy accents added. Fussy cut and the piece has been in the 'pile' for a long time. (definitely a snippet!)
- Stitched circle cut from a past play day background using sprays & paints. (Oh yeah, snippet)
- flowers & sentiment done on watercolor paper, using Zig markers, while on one of our trips to Florida. (um...s'pose it could be a snippet? Yeah?)
Put it all together, asked DH if it was fit to send to our friend, and he said "Send it".
Here's the inside:
- Impression Obsession die (Thanks Lis for using this die in your pretty card to us). It was cut from a snippet of previously created background and just enough left to use this die. I did discover that using the Sizzix Precision Metal plate would be a good idea with this die! (ask me how I know this? but it still cut ok with regular cutting plates, just had to do a little scissors snip-snip in a couple places).
With dies like this, I think it will be easier for me to go ahead, finish the card when I make it.....
Ahem, since I hear there has been some excitement over at the Snippets Playground, & since Parsnip & I exchanged some sweet chockie kisses on my last trip (since I'd been MIA for so long, and Sweet little Bear still let me sneak in!), I'm off to check out things. I heard Parsnip got some chocolate on his white fur, and I want to see what THAT is all about! C'mon, let's go have some fun at Snippets Week 222.
Lots of blog commenting in my future, folks! Thanks for popping by.
