week 234 LIM Meets Snippets
What a lovely surprise when I checked the Less is More challenge this week to find Miss Di of Snippets Playground fame as a GDT. I quite often end up using snippets for my LIM card and entering both challenges anyway, so a bonus week for me! Congrats Di on your GDT week too.
I've used a Lil Inker die and technique that Kylie used on her blog with this card. I created a background using brushos and then cut out the "happy birthday". You can see that die cut on the card below. Then I used the waste from that cut to put into a cut of the die from white card. It needed more on the card, so using a square die I partly cut a square in the card base to provide a background for the die.
I also want to give a big thank you to Kitty from My Mum's Craft shop who tracked down this die for me, only to find she didn't sell it - so I got it from Make the Day Special.
My second card also uses the brusho background to cut bricks and place down the side of the card base which was embossed with a brick background.
I'm finding that once I create a brusho or gelli background I can't let go of the snippets!
As well as entering Less is more - I am off to the snippets playground to show the playmates.
