Good Morning Everyone,
A quick post today revealing the snippet card that could just be spotted photographed, along with my stash of leftover bits and pieces, in yesterday's WOYWW post.
White cardstock was folded to form a 6"x4" card base. The piece of marbled card, measuring 6"x4", forms base of topper - some of you may remember my experiments with marbling using the shaving foam method & Cosmic Shimmer Mist - in this case the shades Meadow Lush & Blue Lime - this is one of the remaining bits.
I think you can see the shimmer better in this photo - it's gorgeous.
Small pieces of silver & green mirror card were used for matting & layering and a 2"square piece of patterned paper (the tiny tree) from Daisy Bucket's Merry Wishes design paper was added to make this wee topper.
I just added the gems, in 3 sizes, in green, blue and white to add even more bling.
It took just 7" of the metallic lace trim for the card and I added some more green gems ... just in case there wasn't enough bling!!
Other items used were Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Stormy Sky - I edged all the card and the insert, just a plain piece of leftover copy paper cut to size.
The greeting is just a green peel-off set on to some mirror card.
I really enjoyed making this quick and easy card ... so quick that it has taken longer to photograph and write about than it took to make ... and the best is that it has used up a bit, albeit a minuscule bit, of my snippet stash. Now that I have sort of sorted the stash into types (card or paper) and co-ordinating/matching designs/colours I'm hoping to make as many as it takes to wipe out my snippet mountain ... well, okay, I'm never to going to wipe it out completely, not when I'm constantly adding to it, but my intentions are good :)
So Jules, what do you think? Am I on the right road to snippet wipe out?
Happy Crafting Everyone,
