Hello again Mr. Snail, I see more of your trails on my front porch! Such is life in our cooler rainy climate here in SW Washington State. While I am not a huge fan of the snails and slugs munching on my plants I do adore the darling Snailed It Stamp Set, coordinating Snail Dies and Snail Mail Designer Series Paper all of which are retiring at the end of June.
To make this card:
Basic White card base 4 1/4” x 11” scored at 2 3/4” and 5 1/2” fold to create a Z.
Next using Real Red Cardstock cut a piece 5 1/4” x 4” and 2 pieces 2 1/2” x 4”.
Using coordinating pieces of the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper cut one of each design 2 1/4” x 3 3/4” and a panel of Basic White 5” x 3 3/4”.
Lay the card base flat, layer and adhere the Real Red and DSP onto the 2 3/4” sections and then the Real Red and Basic White to the 5 1/2” section. Fold into a Z as shown in the photo.
Stamp the snail images using Momento Black Ink onto Basic White cardstock. I colored the images using Stampin Blends using both the light and dark of the following colors, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay and Real Red.
Then I used the Snail Dies to cut out the snail with packages on his shell and the snail with the envelope on his shell I used Stitched so Sweetly Dies and the layering die cut in Real Red Cardstock. I adhered the stitched so Sweetly die cuts layering fashion and to the front flap of the Z Fold, positioning it so it overhangs the fold but not adhered past the score line, and the other snail onto the far right lower corner of the 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” panel. I added some Wink of Stella under both snails to add that touch of snail trail and scattered 3 rhinestones randomly across the card front.
This stamp set, dies and Designer Series Paper are retiring yet still currently available while supplies last or June 30th. All items are available through my online store: https://www.stampinup.com?demoid=2189212
I hope you enjoy this darling card and Z Fold Technique!
