...here is one of the cards I've made using the dies which came as freebies with my second magazine purchase and because these only need quite small scraps of card they are very apt for the Snippets challenge. There are seemingly lots of possibilities for making a variety of 'critters' of one sort or another, mostly suitable for Christmas but I'm sure with a bit of imagination they will come in for other occasions too. I sat down one evening with my lap tray, my little Sapphire machine and some of my 'bits' boxes and cut out quite a lot of pieces in various colours which I then built up into some seasonal characters including penguin, robin, gingerbread man, reindeer and a Santa which I wasn't happy with so will have to try again with him.
I've chosen to show you a penguin today and he has been popped onto an oval of white card which was just lying around waiting to be embossed with a snowy effect. Background paper came from my seasonal stash and the wavy die cut was a stray left over from a previous project. Another small snippet was used to die cut the greeting.
As usual there is another great card showcasing this week's prize on the challenge blog so why not take a look HERE and maybe make something to use up some of your snippets.
