And That's A Wrap

Today I'm sharing a simple snippets card with you, that I made for my eldest daughter.
She completed her PhD, in cardiac physiology, a while ago, but the ceremonies were cancelled, due to COVID.
A couple of weeks ago she finally got to wear the floppy hat ! :-)

Alphabet dies are great for using up even the smallest snippets of card.
Here, I layered a few pieces together, and coloured the top layer with my ecoline brush pens (great pens if you want a bold, vibrant colour).
Getting the letters in a perfect line is always tricky, so I didn't even attempt it here - and I like the more relaxed result.


And here's a photo of my daughter in her coveted floppy hat and gown,
with my grandson, Bailey.

Brilliant use of your snippets. I totally agree that die cutting is a good way of using up snippets.

Glad your daughter got to celebrate her achievement at last.

Thanks for playing in the Snippets Playground xxx
