Using Snippets


I have a lot of snippets to play with, and I made a get well card using a few of them for this card. I used a SU! flower shop stamp set, embossing the flowers with white ep on plum card stock, then used SU! punches for the flowers. I added some flourishes with 2 different Cheery Lynn dies, some pearls and gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty, and put it all on a background embossed with a SU! elegant bouquet (R) ef. The sentiment is sincere salutations by SU! done with eggplant ink.

I'm sharing this over at the Snippets Playground 142.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

A beautiful card, and the soft flowers are perfect with this particular sentiment. Lots of wonderful snippety bits so Parsnip is sure to love it as well. I'm loving the textures on your flowers, the subtle background embossing and the leaf flourish you've added to the pretty bouquet. TFS & Hugs
