Birthday Card & Matching Tag


I had a few snippets on my work table in shades of pink, grey, white and black, so I made a birthday card with them. I used a Darice Daisy die along with a set of MFT horizontal stitched dies, and pieced them all together on a white card base. The black panel was cut with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die and I added some pink and clear gemstones along with a SU! sentiment to finish this one.


When you still have leftover snippets, you can always make a matching tag! I used this adorable Hero Arts Holiday Dachshund stamp (a birthday gift from a sweet blogging friend) and colored *her* with Copics. After covering the colored image with clear embossing powder and heat sealing it, I fussy cut it and adhered it to a piece of pink cardstock that was cut with a SU! scalloped top punch. I punched some balloons with a MS punch, and hand drew some balloon strings to float them. The sentiment is by Avery Elle and the ribbon and silver cord is from my stash!

I'll be sharing these with the Snippets Playground #208 and #209 as the challenge will run for 2 weeks over the holidays.

I hope you're having a great weekend so far! Thanks for the visit!

Another perfect snippety card, and I'm loving the non-Christmas colors! I never think to combine pink & other colors...and I especially like the way you've done the dp patterns. These combine beautifully together, and the way you've used the horizontal stitched dies. Pretty inlay work too. And of course you go the extra bit with the cute tag! Love it! Also loved the cute jeans backside card I saw at the Playground. What talent!!! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and best wishes that 2016 will be all that you wish it to be. TFS & Hugs.

Oh such a pretty pairing. I love the pink and black and haven't seen those colors in a few months so it is a nice cheery sight. Fantastic idea to make a matching tag. Someone is going to be very luck to receive both. Have a fabulous Sunday.
