I'm sharing a Thank You card today, made specifically to thank Di, who runs the Pixie's Snippets Playground, and it's important to include Parsnip and Dudley in that, too, I suppose, so that they don't feel slighted and run wild. Di just celebrated the end of the 8th year at the Playground, and she's been running it for the last seven. Darnell has organized a large blog hop for those of us who wanted to thank her and you can find the hop here if you're interested.
Following the main rule of the Playground, I did this entire card using scraps of this and that, including a left over bit of CS for the card base. The flowery background is a snippet of oriental origami paper and the size of it controlled the actual size of the card (approximately 3" X 5".)
I found a scrap of cornflower blue CS and layered onto it the back of a left-over negative of a "thank you" die cut (Tim Holtz for Sizzix.) Because the piece between the 't' and the 'h' was missing, I cut a tiny, thin, bit of dark burgundy CS which was hanging about on the desk and used it. It doesn't match exactly but was the best I could do with what was available.
The flower was cut from a scrap of white paper; I embossed the petals with a stylus and added a white sequin in the middle.
I've been a bit absent from the Playground during the holidays (and again most of this month) due to all the time spent with family and the rather long process of sorting things to be relocated. I have missed making 'snippets' projects during that time. What fun to have used nothing but snippets for this entire card! Enjoy, Di, and thank you so much for keeping things going at the Playground. :-D
