Mosaic Angel



I've made another mosaic background for this card, using snippets of retired SU! Christmas designer paper that I really like. I also added some snippets of Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green cardstock in the mix too. For this one, I gold-embossed the spaces between the snippets, so I die-cut a gold mirror card angel using a Gina Marie Designs angel and placed her on a piece of vanilla cardstock. I didn't add a sentiment because I liked the way this looks without one.

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks 313 and 314 because I may have used a few snippets to make this card :)

Merry Christmas eve to those who celebrate Christmas - and may your Christmas day tomorrow be joyful for all!

Carol, this should be on the cover of Di's new craft magazine, "How to Use Snippets!" Your snippets are so gorgeous as a background for the simple angel outline image!! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
