Anniversary Snippets

I needed to make an anniversary card for some friends and inspired by the 'use snippets' challenge at Less Is More, I made this card from lots of 'bits' from my scraps box...

For some unknown reason I seemed to have lots of strips of card. What better way to use them up than to make a basket weave background! I also had lots of pieces of lilac card left over from making some wedding invitations for a friend - I matted the woven card onto a lilac base and die cut a lilac heart for a topper. I added a trio of lilac gems and voila - a card make from snippets!

Thanks for visiting



  1. What a brilliant idea. I think you must be like me and save every tiny piece, just in case. This is a great way to use them up. It makes a fab card

  2. I too have lots of strips of white card, what a wonderful idea to use them up. I love the textured card with the pretty lilac too.

  3. Hi Sharon!

    I love this card, such a great way to use up snippets too. Do please think about coming to play in the Snippets Playground, we're a very welcoming bunch and it's anything goes every week just so long as you use one or more snippets :) And we have prizes and picks of the week as well. You could link this card if you like. Lucky you living in one of my favourite places - I do miss the North Sea coast terribly.
