Snippets and corners!

Good morning fellow bloggers and welcome to my blog
Did you remember to put your clocks forward ?
l have a card made purly from off cuts (Snippets) l'd like to share with you
l do like to try something new and this l saw on another bloggers blog Here
Called background dies
 l didn't buy any new dies but thought l'd give it ago 
Using the Butterfly die that l already had
To get this technique all l did was 
Place some designer paper on the card front
Die cut two butterflies
Raised the white card with 3D Sticky pads 
And added the die cut Butterflies 
Other products used 
Spellbinder Die/Crafts-Too Corner Die/ Marianne Die
Ribbon/Buttons from stash
Challenges
C is for corners... butterflies-c-is-for-corners.
Thank you for your time

  1. Hi Sandra! What a great technique and such a lovely card - beautiful spotty paper and such a great idea to add the filigree butterflies after cutting out the solid ones!

  2. I forgot to say that I've had those little stick-on domes I used on today's card for many years, originally bought from QVC and the deal was about 12 sets of them - various sizes, slightly different shades and almost clear. The packets have no name on them but I bet if you look hard enough online someone will still be making them.

    Hugs
