Lots of Love Snippets

I'm on a mission to try and use lots of snippets this year, so made this anniversary card to take across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I'm also entering the Die-Cut Divas 'Do or Use Something New' challenge (I've used a new die) and Ally's Angels 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Heart'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: White hammer and red matt card, Wild Rose Studion 'Always and Forever' paper, white paper

I trimmed several snippets of paper into one centimetre strips and glued them onto white paper.  I die cut and embossed a heart, ensuring the sentiment strip was across the widest part of the heart.  I then trimmed a piece of white hammer card so it was slightly larger than the heart, layered it onto a slightly larger piece of red card and attached it to the centre of the card.  The heart die cut was attached using Collall glue so I could move it around until it was in the centre of the card.

Kath, this really is fabulous! What a wonderful way to use snippets and also using Collall glue really is great. I love it too for the move-ability factor :) Need to dig my heart dies out!

This is something that I might CASE Kath as this seems like a great idea and the different patterns of the Wild Rose Studio papers go together perfectly. x

I somehow missed this card when you posted it, but saw it when it popped up as one of Di's picks in the Playground. It really is a beautiful card and such a clever way of making the heart. xx
