Special Delivery Snail

 Hello!  I have another card for my stash of cards to send to local senior citizens.  (See my post here if you would like to send some cards.)  I love this little snail and made a few cards featuring him.  




I was able to use up some more bits and pieces of paper from other projects, although I had to die cut the green and vellum circles.   A bit of washi, some sequins and a staple finished up the card.   

I love printing sentiments using my computer.  There are so many free fonts available that I am always able to find something to use.   In this case, since I wanted to use a circle that was die cut sometime previously. (One of the bits and pieces.)  I printed the sentiment on a scrap piece of paper.    Then using a bit of 3M delicate surfaces (purple) tape I aligned the circle with the sentiment and then sent it back through the printer.  Easy peasy!


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day.



Supplies:

  • Stamp:  Snail Mail digital stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs
  • Paper:  Alla Prima 6x6 paper pad, Georgia Pacific white card stock, Paper Trey white card stock, Stampin' Up vellum
  • Other: Copic markers, white gel pen, sequins, mini stapler, washi tape
