A Snippet Christmas Card

Happy Thursday, I thought I'd share a snippet card I made.  I have lots of Christmas snippets, so I think I'll be sharing lots of Christmas cards....My goal, 10 a month...well, after today, I have 9 more to go this month!  I hope to get some done tomorrow when I crop with the girls.  Well, here is card number 1....

and here is the inside....
The papers are snippets left from an album I'll be showing next month.  I love the KaiserCraft  6 1/2 by 6 1/2 paper pad.  I used a gold pen around the graphics and then framed them on brown card stock.  The gold snowflake was hard for me to's one of those hoarded items that have been hanging around for a long time.  It's pretty chunky, maybe I should have used a die cut snowflake, you know those postal charges are killing us old pensioners...hmmmm I'll have to give it a bit of a thought....I might just be trying to pry the snowflake off.  I wish I wouldn't have used so much glue. Oh well!

I'm heading over to share my little snippet card with Di and I'm hoping that you too will have a snippet card or two to share.  It's easy and it's fun and you'll find Di to be quite the gal.  We all meet on the playground and I'll warn you, a few of the gals just might be up to no good.  Check out Pixie's Crafty Workshop right here.

Until next time, have a most wonderful week and happy crafting.

  4. Gorgeous Mary. Well done on starting this year's cards. I am not quite that organised yet! I do so love Kaisercraft but it is not easy to get over here.

  5. Stunning Mary - and I'm with Sarn on how beautifully you photograph your lovely work. Yup, a very luxurious card indeed!

  6. Mary.....Wow what a snippet this is truly gorgeous xx

  7. Mary, this is a gorgeous snippet card. How do you manage to get such even lines on your gold edges? It's superb! Really highlighted the beautiful image. Love that DP too. Really lovely & I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful Christmas cards...just know I'll see some great new MB products! TFS & Hugs. Happy New Year in case I missed saying earlier.

  8. Your setup around this card is wonderful//a beautiful Christmas scene.
    What did you use to create the snow? Is it a Flokki rug? It looks fabulous. I have some glass diamond looking stones in various colours and thought I should give them a try.I am a bit of a rubbish photographer though!

    Your card is lovely. The inside is a lovely as the outside...well done!

  9. Wow, that is a beautiful Christmas card using snippets! How fun it is to use snippets and get them used up.
