Recently I had a bit of a sort out in my craft corner. You know that pile of bits and pieces of half made cards and abandoned projects? It's not just me who has that is it?
These 3 cards were all made from things I'd given up on because I didn't like or didn't know what to do with. The card bases are also failed projects. I have plenty of those.
So I set to and made all these cards from scraps and snippets lying around. Yeay for me and I can pop into Pixie's Snippets Playground and show them off.
The first two are Christmas cards to add to my (not very large) pile.
I know I made this first one a very long time ago. I'd heat embossed the holly then painted over with Brushos and ironed off the embossing. Love those berries. I remembered that I had a sheet of push out sentiments from who knows where so this is two of them glued together to give a little more dimension.
This was a similar idea. I embossed the snowflakes and added Brushos, I wasn't happy with it at the time but not enough to throw it away! Another sentiment and a snowflake found in my box of bits.
|This last one was gold embossing painted over with aqua and orange inks. Again I didn't like it! Now I do so it's popped onto kraft card with a few gems added for sparkle. |
So that was a good afternoons work. Also a good idea when you are not feeling very creative but want to make something. Since I made these another little pile has started to form!
Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x
