Pixie's Snippets Playground - Weeks 260 & 261 - Prize C

Time for another 'Snippets Playground Celebration' prize - and this is my 'super-easy' snippets card:
I used:

- 4" x 6" white card blank

- piece of Centura white pearlescent card, embossed using a Crafts-Too folder called 'Let It Snow', trimmed to slightly smaller than the card front

- a little snippet of holly patterned ribbon, just wrapped across the front of the embossed panel with a little piece tied in a knot (for some reason I have a few of these little lengths of ribbon tucked away)

- then glued the panel in place on the card front

So quick and easy, I let the embossing folder do most of the work! I could have mounted it onto a red card blank, that would add something. And perhaps instead of the ribbon a stamped snowman, fussy cut and then popped in the bottom right hand corner would be an idea? I just didn't have much time to play - but am still happy with the result! Super for batch baking of course and a way to use up those mysterious snippets of ribbon :)

So, here's today's prize:
Not one, but SIX of these are on offer as prizes - it's the Crafts-Too 'Let It Snow' embossing folder of course.

At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session for all the prizes using the one Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE - so you do need to have entered one snippets make over on that post to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft.

Just leave a comment on this post if you would like the chance to win today's prize.

Oh wow--that is the most wonderful ribbon! I really love your card, Di--wonderfully festive! I have similar folders so leave me out of the draw for this prize. So generous to give 6 of them to lucky playmates!

Carol L said...

That's a beautiful and stunning card and the embossing folders are beautiful, but I have to say no thanks to this draw because I already have several snowflake embossing folders! Good luck to everyone!

KT Fit Kitty said...

You are awesome, Di! This is gorgeous! And so simple! Gotta love it! I would love to win your embossing folder! Unlike Carol, I think you can never have too many snowflake embossing folders! I have 3 and use them all! Please count me in for this sweet prize! Thank you!!!!

Wanda said...

Gorgeous card, love it when an embossing folder does most of the work. I would love a chance at this prize.

Jane Willis said...

Absolutely gorgeous! It's one of those embossing folders that looks as if it does all the work for you, but the genius of adding a simple yet elegant trimming lifts it to a new level.
I don't think I'll be joining in the playground this time, as my "craft room" is actually the dining room so I've had to put everything away for the time being, but I might just come dashing in at the end of next week.

This is really elegant and pretty in white Di and love your added ribbon. I do have a snowflake ef but I think the sentiment makes it just that bit different so I am a 'yes please for Prize C'.

Liz said...

Super card, Di, the patterned ribbon is a perfect finishing touch. When I first looked at your card, I thought you patiently added white die cut letters, then I realised it's all part of the embossing folder. What a time saver! I'd love to win this one. xx
