Jules Crafty Snippets wk 37

Hi All!
I missed my weekly snippet reduction last week, what with the wedding losing me a whole weekend and then playing catch up all week, so I thought I`d better make an effort for this weeks Jules Crafty Snippets.
My collection of scraps is going down slowly but for every large snippet I use, I`m left with another, smaller snippet. The great thing about it all is that it`s saving me money. Where I would be tempted to buy a new paper pad, I`ve been very good and automatically go straight to my bit box.Lol.
Anyway enough of the waffle here is my first card and, as you can see I`m in Christmas mode.
Apoligies for the rubbish piccy, I photographed it yesterday and it was so very dull. IRL the colours are much brighter.
I`ve used 3 different colours of the same snowflake paper from an Artilicious CD, all quite small snippets.
I used a scallop punch along the bottom of each piece. The hardest thing was getting the triangle correct `cos maths and engineering are so not my strong point. I raised the tree on foam pads and added some gems for baubles. The `bucket` is a small piece of silver mirri card cut to shape.
I ran a snippet of white card through the cuttlebug with the snowflake EF and matted that onto a piece of silver mirri card. Looking at it now,maybe I should add a star to the top.


This one uses 2 papers from Papermania. The holly one is from a Silent Night Collection and was quite a large snippet. The gingham was a tiny piece from a Capsule Collection pad.
I used a Spellbinders scallop die on the holly paper and added 2 red gems.
The sentiment is by Creative Expressions stamped and embossed on gold on a tiny scrap of green card.
I`ve added some gold thread to finish.
I really love this card and might make some more in different papers.
I`m hoping to make some more snippet cards this week, time allowing so I may be back.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. Great cards - love the pieced Christmas tree so much I might just pinch the idea to use up some of my teeny snippets. The Spellbinder die you've used on the second makes gorgeous scallops - the red gems a very nice touch. Elizabeth x

    I love your Christmas tree .. .. but my favourite has to be the second one simply because it uses my favourite Christmas papers.
