Living in the Pacific Northwest with the cooler, wetter climate we are no strangers to snails and slugs. During the spring we often find snail trails on the sidewalks in the early mornings. My inspiration for this card was creating cute, happy mail and seeing the snail trail image on this darling DSP!
Isn’t it fun to open the mailbox and find something other than bills and junk mail? Today’s card features the Snailed It Bundle and Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.
To create this card:
Start with a card base of Bermuda Bay cardstock 4 1/4” x 11” scored at 5 1/2”. A piece of Snail Mail Designer Series Paper 4” x 5 1/4” adhered to the card front, I chose to have the card be landscape orientation.
Next I used the Snail Dies (that are on sale 50% while supplies last) to die cut the snail image out of the DSP and the postage square die to cut a piece out of Basic White, isn’t the stitching so cute? Adhere the the snail die cut to the postage stamp die cut.
I then stamped the simple greeting using Momento Black Ink. I chose a strip of DSP measuring 3/4” x 5 1/4” that looks like snail trails, tucking a slightly shorter strip of Basic White cardstock under the strip and adhering it to the card front as shown in the photo.
To finish off this card, I used dimensionals to pop up the postage stamp die cut, lining it up so the body of the snail was inline with the “snail trail” on the DSP. I added some rhinestones as well as decorated a white panel inside the card and stamped a snail image on the envelope!
This stamp set and dies can be easily adapted for making your woodland or fairy scenes making it a fun and versatile. The stamp set, dies and DSP will be retiring at the end of June and are only while supplies last.
