Pixie Snippets #388

 Time to visit the Playground once again and what a fun card the lovely Di has produced for us this time ~ I think I will have to ask for my name to be included in the draw for the brilliant die used - don't you just love the long johns 😁.  I've used quite a lot of fairly small snippets for  my card this time as well as delving into several different sets of dies in order to build up an interesting scene.  I started with the octagon die which I cut once in green and once in a patterned card.  I then sliced the top off the patterned piece to form a little slope.  Next came the tree house cut from a kraft card snippet, over stamped with bark design; followed in turn by the toadstools, flowers, grass and last but not least the two gnomes. Phew, that was a lot of die cutting and sticking I must say.  I'm probably going to use this as a New Home card but will add a suitable sentiment when I finally decide (left space for it at the bottom).
