Snippet Squares


Here is my Pixies Snippets Playground card for this week.

I used two long, thin, left-over strips of white cardstock to create the squares.



The white card was inked with Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress ink, then cut into small squares and die cut using a 4.5 cm scalloped square die from XCut. This left even more snippets - lovely little frames that I might try to incorporate into another card.
The images were stamped onto each square in Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. The stamps are tiny ones from two sets; one from Craft Sensations and the other from The Works.
The tricky part for me was glueing the squares into place on the black background - I'm someone who can't draw a straight line using a ruler! .... and BTW, I can't walk in a straight line either :)
Once the squares were in place, I glued the strip along the bottom edge and finished it off with a gold, mirror-board die cut statement.
The black card was then mounted onto the card on foam pads.
