I have continued on using up more of my 12x12 Doodlebug Designs snippets. It has been quite fun to try designing cards around what is left on my desk, rather than file it away in my snippets baskets. As the papers are so big to begin with, the snippets are sometimes HUGE!
The images here are once again from the Marks Finest Papers sugar cookie stamp set. My youngest daughter often makes these fancy type sugar cookies. She pipes the icing around the edges of the design and then thins it down and floods the icing across each coloured section. These cookie stamps remind me of her work!
This 2 layered cookie has the bow cut again and pop dotted forward. It sits on another of the Marks tags that I stamped and fussy cut, some weeks ago. The aqua circular mat is cut from glitter paper I stockpiled from a Joannes sale quite some time ago. The larger mat is a Spellbinder Beaded Circles and is cut from red cardstock. You can see a bit of the glitter here...
This background is again from the 12x12 Doodlebug Designs, Sugar Plums line and the corner accents are layered sizes of the Impression Obsession snowflakes die A red diamond in the center, finished these off.
I tend to cut snowflakes and other small embellishments ahead when I am bored. It is a great way to use up teensy snippets and I file them away (by themes) in one page photo albums from the Dollar Store. The double layered snowflake on the tag is again from those precut choices.
The sentiment is another hot pink American Crafts rub on. My Stampin' Up oval and scalloped oval punches seemed the right size for this sentiment, so were pressed into work.
The inside has one red snowflake added to the bottom left corner. Quite plain and simple.
I added one fussy cut stamped and fussy cut candy cane to the bottom left corner of the envelope. I think it looks quite festive. It is adhered strongly, as I used Sook Wang double sided glue paper under the stamped images before I fussy cut them.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets.
