I've made a birthday card to share. I made it entirely from scraps and snippets for Di's fortnightly challenge over at Pixie's Snippets Playground.
- the card base, measuring 5¾" x 4¼" was made from a scrap, an admittedly large one, of Docrafts Kraft cardstock.
- the topper was constructed using a snippet of lilac Coordinations card, embossed using the Folksy Circle (Sizzix) folder, trimmed to fit the front just leaving a tiny margin of Kraft showing.
- A die-cut greeting, made with a die purchased from China through Ebay and another snippet, this time white satin finish cardstock, was glued to the centre of the embossed design.
- to finish, the card was decorated with a dragonfly, stamped and die cut, Creative Dies Dragonfly Die & Stamp Set, from the same scrap of white satin finish cardstock and also from a tiny scrap of leftover lilac Coordinations, and three paper roses, from Wild Orchid Crafts - very old stash!
A couple of close ups of the dragonfly. Silicone gel was used to achieve the dimension.
It's not often I can say that a card was made entirely from scraps but this one certainly was.
