Di very kindly left a message on a previous post inviting me to her blog Pixie’s Crafty Workshop. Her ‘Snippets Playground’ challenge looked intriguing and a bit different so I thought I would give it a go. This is the card I came up with.
Those of you who have veiwed my post about the cover for my Art Journal Calendar might recognise the theme. The card is made from the left over bits from that project.
Craft Concepts – Woodgrain, Cottage Floral, Budding Vine
Cuttlebug – Ice Crystals
Letters – Panduro
Seasnon’s Greetings – Creative Stamping Magazine
Core’dinations offcuts from previous project
White card blank
Kraft card off cuts
Paper string off cuts
I folded one half of the card blank in halves to create an easel card.
Using the sepia ink and masking off the ‘ in Season’s and the s in greetings I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card then added the A using the Panduro Alphabet stamps.
I used another off cut strip, pale lime, to put under the greeting and used 3D foam pads to mount the greeting strip having first gone around the edges with the sepia ink.
I cut four off cuts of Core’dinations card into tags and sent each one through a different embossing folder to match the season.
Blue – winter – ice crystals
Pale green – spring – budding vine
Darker green – summer – cottage floral
Browny orange – autumn – woodgrain
I then mounted them onto some off cuts of Kraft Card, punched a hole in the top and threaded with paper string. The triangles in contrasting colours at the bottom were the cut offs from the season tags on my Art Journal cover.
