Snail Mail

Because it is so much fun to send a card for no reason!

I loved this stamp set even before I became affiliated with The Rabbit Hole. There is just something so fun about an icky snail with a shell of flowers. Who knew?! I wanted to keep this card pretty clean and simple, so instead of adding a sentiment I used the hello scripty word with shadow layer. Scroll down for the show and tell…

I colored my icky snail with some YG’s. Knowing I could use the purple plaid paper and the darker blue/purple card stock I made the majority of the flowers in this color. Balancing it with pink, lavender and yellow. I added texture with Nuvo drops for the stamen tips and the flower centers.

Using the Hello Scripty shadow die, I cut the shadow in the dark card stock and the hello from the plaid paper. I also cut the hello two more times out of base paper and glued them all together to give it some dimension. Then I added some 3D crystal lacquer to the hello to make it shine like patent leather.

The photos failed to capture that I used the gelly roll black glaze pen on hid eyes and smile!
