The Snail Mail Trail
by Sue McRae
Hello crafters! Sue here with a card using some products from the Whittle family of dies and stamps.
I’ve had my eye on the Whittle Snails because they’re so adorable! There are two snails in this set and I used the smaller one. I die cut the snail multiple times from white card stock and inked up the snail bodies in grey ink and the shells in a mix of pastel colours and then spritzed everything with Perfect Pearls for a little bit of shimmer.
The Whittle Sun was die cut from white card stock and was inked and sprayed.
The Wavy Long Picket Fence was die cut from some new Woodgrain Paper in cream and I used a strip of the Kraft Woodgrain Paper for the ground. The Woodgrain Paper also comes in white. Love this stuff for adding subtle texture to my card designs.
My scene was created on a piece of blue paper from the Ocean Blue Paper Pad. I added a Whittle Cloud Border and a sentiment from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments Stamp Set. The snails were popped up with foam dots and I cut a thin strip of glitter paper for a snail trail.
Once my card was finished I felt like something was missing and figured out it was googly eyes! Yes, the googly eyes make these snails even more cute!
Thanks for visiting with me today!
