Hello Friends!! It’s a beautiful sunny day in Kansas! I hope everyone is doing well. We have been doing a little gardening at our home today. So wonderful to get out and enjoy the sunshine!
I have a cute card I’m sharing today using the Snailed It Bundle from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. Isn’t the little snail so adorable? Friends, there is no stamping with this card. It features die cutting and faux embossing. The dies in this set match perfectly with the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper to cut the images. Easy peasy to create! There’s no inky fingers with this card!
I first adhered the snail, stamp and stitched pattern paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper onto Bermuda Bay card stock using multi-purpose glue. Then, I die cut the images from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Snail Dies. How awesome is it that these two products coordinate together? I added adhesive sheets to scraps of Basic White, Real Red and So Saffron card stock before I die cut the mushrooms and ‘friend’ sentiment. This makes adhering these small detailed pieces together so easy and mess free!
The basic white stitched circle, cute little snail image and ‘hello’ sentiment are attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the friend sentiment, I used the faux embossing technique. I love this technique! Have you seen it? The first thing I did was adhere a scrap of Basic Black card stock to a scrap of an adhesive sheet. Then, I covered the Basic Black card stock with packing tape. You’ll want to make sure there are no bubbles in the packing tape. Then, press down the packing tape really well using a bone folder. Go over the packing tape several times with your bone folder. Once you have the packing tape firmly adhered, lay the ‘friend’ die down on top and run it through your die cutting machine. Peel the back off of the adhesive sheet and adhere to your card base.
I wrapped twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo pack around the front panel and tied a bow before adhering the front panel to the card base with multi-purpose glue.
For the inside, I adhered a 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Bermuda Bay and 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock together using multi-purpose glue. Next, I adhered it to the card base. Lastly, I adhered a 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Snail Mail Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the Basic White card stock layer. I finished the inside by adding the large snail image which was die cut from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.
I’ve listed the supplies and measurements below to create this card. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have! Please feel free to contact me! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog today. I’m wishing everyone much happiness and sunshine this day!
The God of love and peace shall be with you. II Corinthians 13:11
