Another Birthday Card


Here's a card I put together with lots of snippets in red, white and black. I started with a left-over piece of text dsp from a previous cutting, adding a die-cut Cheery Lynn French Lattice in black right on top. The black scalloped circle was in my doo-dad box from a previous cutting and the bow was a die bought from Ebay that was cut from red and white snippets. I found an oval gemstone in my stash and popped it right in the center. The "happy" is a cut done with a SSS die, while the "birthday" is a cut done with a SNSS die. I added a touch of yellow Stickles to the flame that dots the letter "i" in the word birthday. I pulled out a matching red envelope and used another snippet of text paper to cover the flap to make this a matching set!

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground for weeks #289 and 290. The only requirement is to use snippets and I've made this mostly from snippets!


Thanks ever so much for stopping by and do have yourself a fabulous Sunday!

A super snippets card Carol! Love the colours of course :) And I did giggle about you buying the label maker dies but not the stamps - I didn't even know they did matching dies :) Lovely to see you in the Playground!

Hugs

Lovely cards!!! I have been drawn to cards made with die cut words recently. Perhaps because of time constraints...I have not made a card in ages!

Hugs and well wishes!!!
