Bring me sunshine!

I hope you're all enjoying a peaceful Sunday. We have sunshine!

I haven't made any Iris fold cards for a long while, so I thought I'd use up some yellow scraps and make a sun. I die-cut the circle in a square of card and used a pattern from this book. The yellow frame and the holographic card are also from the scraps box.

I also decorated the inside:

The brown birds are cut out from one of the scraps of paper I used for the sun.

I'm going to enter this into Jules's Snippet Challenge. I didn't use quite as much paper as I hoped - and now of course I've got lots of narrow strips instead of half-cut sheets!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Hello Mags

What a fab way to use snippets. The yellow is so bright and cheerful, and the inside perfect.

Hi Mags

A fabulous snippet card .. .. it must have used up a fair few snippets and a fair few minutes doing all the folding and sticking too!!!

I know what you mean about being left with just smaller snippets .. .. that is why I have started to cut shapes from the smaller pieces (flowers, stars, leaves etc). It certainly speeds up the cardmaking process at a later stage too.

This looks great and I love the birds on the inside too.

Thank you for sharing your lovely snippet make.

Love Jules xx

Hi Mags, great snippet use. I haven't got the patience to try something like this, but it's so effective. Like the birds on the back too - finishes it off beautifully. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments - they are much appreciated. Elizabeth x

I used to do quite a bit of Iris folding and it is great for using left overs, trouble is you still create a lot more LOL.

Love Mandy xxx

I've never done iris folding - it looks tricky! Your card is just lovely though!
