Springtime Snippets

I seem to have lots of pastel coloured printed papers among my snippets at the moment - odd as I'm not much of a "pretty pastels" type, but I suppose that's why the papers end up hanging around once I've cut into them. However I can always use a selection of them up in Pixie's Snippets Playground!

Anyway, it means I had a good selection to use for this card.

I took a 15cm square card and cut across it about a third of the way down, then punched both cut edges using an Anna Griffin border punch. Then I cut a 15cm wide panel of white card, deep enough to fill in the newly created gap and cover the open areas of punchwork, and covered it with 3cm wide strips from 5 different snippets. I stamped the sentiment on the lower panel of the card, then reassembled the card front by sticking the punched borders down over the snippet-covered panel.

What a darling card Jane and a great way to use snippets too! I have this wonderful border punch and forget to use it so often, but mine is made by Martha Stewart - from the days when I bought punches rather than dies, including those tricky punch around the page ones.

Lovely to see you playing along in the Snippets Playground.

It's good to get the old punches out and this one is so pretty. A very clever way to use up snippets. A lovely card Jane. Barbxx
