Snippets Playground #423

 The weeks certainly seem to come around quickly and it is time for a new challenge in the Snippets Playground.  I've made a DL card this time and everything apart from the card blank has been 'found' in my various snippets collections.  The  background paper was a left over snippet from a paper give-away which came with a magazine and the frame was cut from a snippet of cream card.  The watch was stamped and gold embossed on a scrap before fussy cutting and the selection of cogs die cut from small snippets of brown and kraft card with the addition of some gold gilding wax.  Finally a sentiment was die cut from yet another snippet of gold pearl card.  Some over stamping was added to the background paper which was fairly plain to start with.

Frame - dies from Phill Martin set
Cogs - die set from X-cut which I've had for a long time (so useful)
Stamping - various free stamps (magazine give-aways)


  1. Brilliant masculine card Val


  2. A wonderful card and I definitely need to get some of those cogs because they look fantastic! x

  3. A very masculine card Val, what great finds you have in your scrap box.

  4. Such a fabulous card Val. Love the snippets. Hugs Rita xxx

  5. Love this card which is suitable for the male of the species! Tempus fugit when you're in the Playground playing on the swings! xxx

  6. Cogs are always fun to use and a great match with the watch. Great work on the background too. x

  7. I must keep a lookout for those cogs as I don't have any dies with those and these are such a great mix and perfect for a masculine card Val, and I love the background paper and pretty frame and the added gold embossed pocket watch which looks great and what great use of your snippets. x

  8. Wow Val, I love this card - so perfect for a 'chap'. The fob watch is a perfect finishing touch and goes so well with the gilded cogs.
