silhouettes and Snippets

Hi there, just look what dropped through my letterbox today :-)  A little prize from Di from Pixies Crafty Workshop - so kind.
This is what I made.  I drew inspiration from this month's Quick Cards mag, and the shadow box card - the tutorial by our very own Jules (Always with a Heart blog).  I altered the size to fit a 5x7 envelope, and surprise it does fit in, but it could do with being a dimensional envelope, so I will have to have a play and see if I can make one.  As the embellishments and image are created by using my snippets, I am off to play in the snippets playground again this week - it's still a little chilly though!
Sitting at the front of the card is a tag - this has been designed so that you can write on your greeting, and then attach the tag to the back of the card with double sided tape.  It seemed a shame to just write on the back of the card over the pattern.  Oh, sorry, I forgot to say that I printed onto white cardstock on both sides using Pink Petticoat papers - Grannies wallpaper in sweet bohemia, and a dotted in the same colour.
Thanks for looking. x


  1. Oh Lynn, this is truly a stunning card! You should be very pleased with yourself - and the silhouette stamp is just perfect for a shadow box card. I totally LOVE it! Pleased you like the prize that Viv donated, and ran to quickly play with it - it's a perfect Playground card :))

    Hugs, Di xx
