Second Snippets Card

This second card for the Pixie Snippets challenge  is built around the die cut shape which I had left over after making yesterday's one (I'm not mad ... honestly).  I embossed it and applied some amethyst gilding wax to highlight the pattern then set about finding other bits and pieces to build a card - plenty either lying around or in my various bits boxes!!  I found a suitable piece of background paper and some deep cream Centura pearl card, cut them to size and then used a Tonic strip die to cut out two panels from the cream card (making two more left over bits of course).  A decorative label shape was cut to match the embossed and gilded one and everything was layered up before die cutting a hellebore flower sprig, a few small butterflies and a tag for the sentiment.

Dies - Tonic strip die and Spellbinder label and decorative label
Flower - Signature die (Joanna Sheen) Hellebore
Butterflies - Sizzix Embosslits die Stampin' Up


  1. Lovely card Val and the guilding wax really enhances your embossing


  2. This is absolutely beautiful Val - I do so love how you use many and varied snippets to build up such lovely designs. And the gilding wax really does add to the result, as Anne quite rightly says.
