Pixie's Snippets Playground

I was so lucky and won a this gorgeous embossing folder from Pixies Snippets last week. So when it landed on my mat earlier this week I knew that I need to have a play with it for this weeks challenge. With snippets from my huge box of off cuts I found two matching pieces of card and embossed both, I then cut the bottom of the design off and working with the the top two pieces I stuck them to a piece of black card (also from the box). One piece had to be turned upside down but the fitted perfectly together leaving a small space between the two. I filled the space with flat backed pearls in matching colours, added a small butterfly cut from a small off cut (I wondered why I had saved this when it fell out of the box, but it was just the right size for the butterfly). To finish I popped this onto a white card base and stamped the sentiment that came with the embossing folder onto some white card and mounted it onto some black. I'm not a very pink person but I think these two pinks together look good.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  5. Oh Sue, what a great idea to flip the die and use the damask embossing as you did. Really great card - looks super in those two shades of pink linked with the pearls!

  20. I love what you've done with this gorgeous embossing folder - I have it too and have never thought of using it for the same design top and bottom, it looks wonderful especially with the two tone pearls.
    You must live very close to me if you are in the north of Hampshire - I'm in Fleet.
