Spots of Snippets

When I saw the sketch for this week's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge

I thought immediately that it would be a great way of using snippets.

When you use a pad as often as I do the Tonic Studios Winter Wonderland one, you do end up with a lot of co-ordinating snippets, so I grabbed a handful of circle dies and a bundle of snippets and set to work. I gave the circles an appliqué look by doodling in faux stitching around them and framed the whole thing by ruling lines to fill the corners.

I am sharing this with
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - sketch
and of course, with all those snippets, Pixie's Snippets Playground.
And thanks to Liz's reminder, I'm heading back to The Crafty Calendar with a second entry that couldn't be more different from my first one!


  1. Brilliant card, Jane. What a great way to use snippets and I love all the doodling. Your card would be perfect for the current Crafty Calendar Challenge. xx

  2. What a fantastic way to use up all of the left over pieces Jane, they make a super card.
