Snippets Challenge #414

 Time to take myself off to the Playground for the latest challenge.  A super prize on offer this time and a guest designer with no less than three cards to inspire us.  When I cut into any patterned paper I always save the left overs, where possible with the pad or pack containing the originals - you never know when you might need just a tiny bit more of a favourite one when using the last  whole piece 😉.  For my card this time I've used some strips of Christmas paper from a previous year (not sure how long ago) but managed to find four strips just wide enough to cut some banners.  I also used snippets to cut the sentiment strip and the glitzy snowflakes..  Also I had a larger  white snippet which I trimmed to size before embossing with falling snow EF.  I did have to cut into a new sheet of red card for the outer layer and of course used a card blank.

Banners - DSP from Stampin' Up (retired), banner die from Creative Expressions
Greeting - stamp from Contempo Christmas, also SU (retired)
Snowflakes - dies from Crafter's Companion, Small snippet glitter paper from SU
Embossing - Falling snow embossing folder also SU
