Pixie's Snippets Playground

Whoa, where has this week disappeared too? Christmas Day is rushing up too fast, I need it to slow down a little please. I still have so much to do before the big day arrives. I did find time to make this Birthday card to enter into Pixie's Snippets Playground, using some new dies from Tattered Lace. There was a CD which came with the dies , so I printed off one of the backgrounds and placed onto an A5 black card which I had gone around the edges with some blue and gold gilding wax. Next I cut out of some scraps of black card that were in the box, the Steampunk owl and cogs. Again I went over them with the same gilding waxes to give them a shine before popping them onto the card. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Chocolate Baroque from one of many sets that I have. This is now winging it's way to someone who's birthday is between Christmas Day and the New Year. No time for sitting around, must get on with some more Christmas prep.



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

Great card Sue - and a super way to use up snippets of course. I think for some of us, no matter how organised we really are, it's in our nature to try to do too much before Christmas Day!

Have a lovely time - and put your feet up!

Hugs
