Thinking About You Card

Today, I would like to show you my latest project for the Fiskarettes Design Team,
which can be found here on their Facebook page, where you
will find other projects made by the design team.
This card has made a very small dent into my box of scrap papers!

I punched 16 squares from four co-ordinating scraps of patterned papers,
glued them onto a piece of white card, and then ran it
through an embossing folder to give the textured effect.
I then mat and layered onto coloured and white card,
glued it to the card base and finished by adding the stamped
sentiment and diamant├ęs.

The items I have used are:-
Creative Expressions Embossing folder - Textures-Linen
Lawn Fawn stamps - Scripty Sayings
Woodware square punched

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes
A Beautiful Mess - Anything Goes

  1. Brilliant use of snippets. Punching out your left-over bits is a great way to use them up.
