Sunday Snippet Card

Two posts in one evening. That's something of a miracle for me but I just wanted to do a quick share of this little card over at Pixie's Snippet's Playground.
A rummage around in the basket of snippets produced all the card used, including the black for the bee.

How the card was made:

  • the base is a white 3" square card blank from Docrafts Papermania
  • the topper is made from snippets of white and yellow cardstock. The white card trimmed to a 45mm square (just large enough for the bee to sit on) and the yellow card 55mm square for layering.
  • the bee was die cut from a scrap of black cardstock - Docrafts Xcut Dinky Die - and then attached to the white card using dimensional squares
  • the topper was then assembled ready to attach to the front of the card blank
  • the sentiment is from Altenew Crafty Friends. It's a straight stamp but I twisted it on the stamp block to create the feeling of movement before stamping on to the bottom of the card blank front
  • the topper was then attached using more dimensional squares. 
  • the final touch was to stamp, with another of the Altenew stamps, Happy Crafting, inside the card.

 It's a teeny wee card, simple to make and, as I made twelve altogether, it used up plenty of snippets which has got to be a bonus.
