Hi there! It is Apr 29 and getting mighty close to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (May 3) AND ordering opportunities for the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, (May 4). WOOHOO! It is sad when we part with some of our favorites, but the new is always challenging and fun. LOVING the new In Colors by the way… more on that later. Let’s see our card 🤗
Todays card is made using a fun bundle from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog called Snailed It and Snail Mail DSP.
The colors in this are so fresh & bright. I’m loving this. I took the Bermuda Bay card base and folded it in half, then took the front and folded it back on itself. I covered each of the panels in Snail Mail DSP with liquid glue. I then took that fun squarish die from the Snail Dies, laid it on the front of the fold and die cut just half. You do this by laying your top cutting plate just on the portion that you desire to cut and run it through your machine. I then die cut two panels, still using the same squarish die and more Bermuda Bay card stock. I adhered these to the front and back of the 1/2 die cut on the card base. I then decorated these panels.
For the front panel I stamped the cute snail in Memento Black ink on a Basic White scrap. I colored the snail using both Light & Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends for the snail, then NEW Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends for the snails shell. I took a Real Red Marker and colored the heart. This was adhered to the panel with dimensionals. I stamped the word ‘hello’ from the Snailed It stamp set in Real Red ink on another Basic White scrap and die cut it with the bubble die in the Snail Dies. I adhered this with liquid glue so it looked as though the snail was talking to us. 🙂 I added 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots
For the back panel I die cut a bubble with the heart from more of the Snail Mail DSP and adhered it with both liquid glue and a dimensional. (It covered the back of the front bubble perfectly!) I then die cut the very cute envelope from more of the Snail Mail DSP and put it together with just dabs of liquid glue where the folds meet. I then used the Rectangular Postage Punch to punch a Basic White piece and covered it with several die cut hearts (Real Red) using the Snail Dies. I decided ton secure this punched piece inside the envelope so it wouldn’t fall out, then adhered that to the panel – as shown.
For the larger panel I used the Layering Squares to die cut a Pool Party piece larger than the die from the Snail Dies, so that when the card is closed it created a nice border. I then cut a piece of Basic White and stamped it with a sentiment from Color & Contour stamp set (NEW!) in Memento Black ink. In took a Real Red marker and created an outline all around. I then added more of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and adhered this to the Pool Party Panel.
For the bottom right decoration, I fussy cut three mushrooms from one of the Snail Mail DSP. I adhered the bottom ‘room directly to the card with liquid glue. The largest ‘room was adhered with dimensionals. The yellow ‘room was added with liquid glue and a dimensional under the stem. I then die cut two more ‘rooms from the Snail Dies with Basic White card stock. The larger ‘room, I saved the pieces that came out and colored them: Dark Crumb Cake Blends and a Black marker. Once the die cut ‘room was in place I put dots of liquid glue in the openings and added the colored pieces. I fussy cut a red ‘room the same size as the smallest die cut ‘room and adhered them together. This was added with liquid glue. The card was nearly done!
Because I wanted a place to write something, I turned the card over and adhered a Basic White panel to which I had added a Snail Mail DSP strip along the long side. NOW the card was complete. 😊
For the envelope I added more of the Snail Mail DSP to the flap and and an additional strip across the bottom of the front of the envelope. VOILA! Fun card, right?!
