Bold and Bright

Goodness I'm late to the Snippets Playground this time - I  thought I'd already played and then realised that although I've had my card made for several days, I'd not actually got round to taking a photo of it, so many other things keep getting in the way! So before Parsnip starts to look at the register and get all jittery about attendance records,  here I am with my snippety make.

The dies I used are a very old ones - the background square came with my first Cuttlebug, many years ago, and the smaller one, that reminds me of a contemporary version of a rose window, from a set of dies I bought very soon after that and I think after all these years it's the first time I've used it.  There were two corners and two squares in the set - I use the corners all the time but never think of using the squares.

Naturally  I used snippets for all the die cutting. It was a great way of using up all those "not quite small enough to throw away" scraps of black in my snippets box. I think they are all the same shade of black, as I've had my current batch of black card for quite a while, but if they aren't, well, the gaps between them and the vivid die cuts make it impossible to tell the difference.

I hadn't planned to add a sentiment but it had a rather unfinished look, so I used a Craftwork Cards pre-printed sentiment that doesn't hide too much of the bold, bright pattern.


  1. Striking card,love the colours.

  6. What a great card Jane! Some of our earlier die certainly are worth a revisit (or perhaps first visit!). Love the design and bold colours.

    Managing to move around more today - the bliss of a shower! Hoping this one might be a quickly over attack but by golly it's still been fierce. My huge worry, and after this round it's a huge one for sure is if it happens whilst I'm at my school reunion - even supposing I'm OK to go in the first place. You'll know just how debilitating it is. Makes my hip replacement a few years ago seem like a walk in the park! Sigh. However, keep battling on and am hoping for the best.
