Snippets Galore

This card began with a left-over snippet of red after I used a top note die to use on another card. I decided to emboss the leftover frame with a SU! (r) square lattice embossing folder, then used a Sizzix Damask embossing folder for the white panel. I die cut the Nestabilities beaded oval with a black & white polka dot snippet, then cut another with red and added those tiny red negatives to the edges. The flowers were done with 2 different SU! mini punches and the centers contain tiny black gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty. The "hello" sentiment was die cut at my friend's house, but I don't know the manufacturer. This may be the most labor-intensive snippet card I've made yet, but it was fun putting it together.

Obviously, I'm sharing this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground #228 where the only requirement is to use snippets.

Thanks for the visit, it's always nice to have you :) Enjoy your day!

Now THAT'S a lot of snippets!!!!! So pretty and so much patience required I know. All that labor paid off though because it's beautiful.

Wow! Wow! WoW! The top note frame is a brilliant idea, and then to emboss it on top of that! Love the wee layered flowers, the colors, and everything about this card. I hope you took a nap after it was done.
