Pixie Snippets Challenge Weeks 299/300

Time again for another snippets card for the Playground fortnightly challenge HERE and as usual the lovely Di has given us details of how she made her card to inspire us.  My offering this time is another Christmas card using a bauble die which was cut in gold and cream card before popping the opposite colours into the spaces to produce matching baubles in opposite colours.  More snippets were used for the branches and greenery with some scraps of seasonal paper and kraft card and a sentiment.  Finally a couple of pieces of twine were used to suspend the baubles from the branch.  Lots of snippets used and still more waiting in the wings!!

Designer Papers - left over from sheets printed using Artylicious Seasons Greetings CD
Baubles - Tonic dies
Scalloped Circle - Tattered Lace die
Sentiment - freebie downloaded from Netty's Cards
Greenery - Tim Holtz evergreens dies and Ivy using Creative Expressions die

    A really lovely snippet make .. .. you must have used lots and lots with this little beauty!
