anniversary a la altenew

Had a request for an anniversary card. So I made one , a couple, many. And you get to see them all.

Today's was actually inspired by scrapbook layouts I've seen where strips of PP are used behind the main photo. Love that look when there's lotsa white space maintained. I lost some of the white space cuz my canvas isn't 12x12. And I used a floral image rather than a photo. But I used, count 'em, 12 snippets from my stash!!!!

Here's my card. And BTW,  it's one of the ones my girlfriend selected, the only non-CAS design she chose!

Stamped the butterfly from Altenew Wild Hibiscus onto my cardbase and then a bloom onto white CS which I fussy cut. Arranged my snippets and adhered or stitched them down. Heat embossed a sentiment from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages onto a black snippet and then popped up the bloom.

Since I had a snippet of debossed and gold inked white CS in there, I decided some gold splatters would tie in nicely!

I'm joining the fun at:
Snippets Playground - self-explanatory I think
Altenew - July challenge (chose red, pink and green snippets)

A Blog Named Hero - Florals (and my sentiment is HA)

What a great way to use those little slips of paper, Maria. It reminds me of quilt making and I love it. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Hi Maria!

So sorry you missed the deadline. Now, I'm slightly relaxed about a teeny bit of back linking so when the Playground is open again (midnight Saturday UK time) you can add this lovely card to the new fortnight.

I'd do it for you but best for you to do it as you'll need to update the link in your own blog post anyhow - also, remember to say if you're playing for the new prize. I think you might like it :)

I can see why your friend picked this card! It is just fabulous. I don't know how you did it (I can't do it for the life of me...), but even with the number of snippets, this still has a pretty good CAS look. Those gold splatters really bring it all together. This is one super anniversary card. Love it!! Bev

Not only do I love the layout and colors of this card, but the fact that you used so many scraps is simply awesome! The black and white flower and the golden splatter are the perfect finish!

So pleased you linked up - and I'm still amazed at all the snippets you used! Such a lovely card Maria!
