Snail Mail BARGAIN. Did you catch my YouTube Live on Tuesday? I made two really cute cards using the retiring Snail Mail Suite. I loved this suite when it was first launched, but simply have not had time to use it as much as I would have liked. While there is still a chance of getting items from the Snail Mail Suite, some at a discount, I thought I would see if I could make up a little of that shortfall. I am sharing one of these with you today, the other will be highlighted later in the week.
The absolute joy of this card is that there is no stamping ANYWHERE. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love stamping, but sometimes you need to just let the dies and paper have their head and see what will happen.
I wanted to include that cute little envelope, and knew it would have to be Vellum if it wasn’t going to overpower the rest of the design. I enclosed a piece of the Designer Series Paper, die cut from the ‘scribble’ paper, which could be writing?
Both the Snails and the square are die cut, there literally would be no stamping, unless you add something on the inside of the card. The paper is so versatile and can be used with non ‘Snail Mail’ projects.
Over the weekend I made another Snail Mail card without using the stamps. I did use the dies again, both for die cutting one of the snails, but also to die cut some of the little mushrooms.
The mushroom dies are ‘standalone’ in that they don’t die cut any of the printed or stamped images, but they can add a wonderful element to your project.
I did cut the large and small mushrooms from both Real Red and Blushing Bride Card. As I wanted the mushrooms to be raised up, I covered the back of each of them with Dimensionals before piecing the other colour into it.
Both cards have had some of the HALF PRICE Resin Hearts added as a finishing flourish. So what do you think? Would you have realised that there was no stamping at all on either of these cards?
