Pixie's Crafty Workshop #418

Just when I'd decided I had enough Christmas cards made and seasonal things were being packed away for a while along comes the Grand Christmas give-away challenge from Pixie's Crafty Workshop where as well as using snippets to make the card, the theme has to be either Christmas or New Year.  Luckily my snippets mountain is always ready to hand so I just needed to decide what else I needed to make my entry.  I do have lots (and lots) of patterned paper snippets so I gathered three different designs from the same set along with some matching red card pieces and of course some white as well.  The die I've used is a good one for using up bits and pieces so I started by cutting the largest piece of red card to fit a 5" x 7" card blank, then cut the frame part of the die using the white, and also a plain piece for a backing (glued these two together). Followed by carefully placing the die onto the patterned scraps to cut out the strips which I then  popped back into the apertures and glued them down.  The chevrons at the bottom were cut from a smaller snippet of the red card.  The final thing was to die cut the words from another scrap of white and some snowflakes from silver and white snippets and here it is - my Snippets entry for the Grand Christmas Draw with a selection of lovely prizes which are being revealed throughout the four weeks until Linky closes.  PLEASE do read the instructions carefully, they are very detailed but easy to understand.

Die - Spellbinders
Patterned Papers - from a retired Stampin' Up Set
Words - Britannia dies
Snowflakes - dies from various sources

  7. This is a great way to use up your scraps of paper Val and I love the finished look with the added snowflakes over that brilliant die cut beautifully framed and infilled with the different coloured papers and card.
