Snowdrops with Love - Sunday Snippets

Evening Everyone

Well, that's another month over and as it has been a a pretty horrible February I,  for one, am really glad to see it gone and delighted to welcome in March, wind, rain and all! I've been happily settled in my craft room all day today finishing off some scrapbook layouts and finding time to make this wee card for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 166.
Keeping with that spring feeling I've recycled a snowdrop scene from a card I received a couple of years ago. Loads of snippets of core'dinations card got used up too.

Here's how I made it:

- to begin, I embossed a sheet of black/green Black Magic core'dinations card with the folder from the Peacock Collection that came free with an issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. The embossing has been rubbed over with a Snow Block to reveal the green core. The peacocks are hidden behind the topper.

- the topper is matted on to snippets of green/white Whitewash core'dinations, using both sides to give contrasting layers.

- the snowdrop embellishments were made by stamping, from a Get Stamping Wild & Free Collection, on to a snippet of the Whitewash card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Each snowdrop was then cut out and adhered to the topper.

- to finish everything was adhered to a 6"x6" square Kraft card base. The sentiment (from Craftwork Cards, I think) was matted on to a circle punched from yet another snippet of green core'dinations card and adhered to the card front.

That's me done for the evening. I'm off to relax by watching Call The Midwife now.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday evening too.

Happy Crafting,
