I love the Snailed It Bundle, because it’s so apropos to our card making. We know that “snail mail” is the best! Unfortunately, this set is from the 2021 Mini Catalog that is retiring the end of June. Continue reading for ordering suggestions.
My idea for today’s card fit nicely on a slimline design. Snails leave long trails, right?
The Crumb Cake card base is 8″ X 7″, folded at 3 1/2″. It is layered with black & white, True Love Designer Paper, 7 3/4″ X 3 1/4″, which is also retiring. The top, Basic White layer, is 1/8″ smaller, so it is bordered by 1/16″ of the black & white paper.
After the stage was set, I stamped the snail in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used three colors of Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, and Fresh Freesia. Then, I used its Snail Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.
The sentiment is also from the Snailed It Stamp Set, cut with its bubble die, and placed on Dimensionals.
“You’ve got mail” is attached to the snail on the stamp, so masking the snail with tape allowed me to use the bubble die.
Don’t overlook the adorable, miniature envelopes, cut with one of the Snail Dies. It cuts the paper in one piece that has four score lines for folding. I used Pansy Petals, gingham and floral, and Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper. You can even leave the top flap open, and insert a tiny note.
After arranging the snail’s trail with black & white twine (Playful Pets Trim), I held it in place with Dimensionals when attaching the envelopes.
Here’s what I know about Snail Mail ordering. It’s on pages 54-55 in the January-June 2021 Catalog. The Snail Dies, the resin hearts, and the Snail Mail Twine (Blushing Bride and Whisper White) will be 50% off on June 1. Everything else will be at the regular price, which includes the suite, the bundle, the stamp set, and the designer paper. If you want it, order early, because the discounted items go quickly.
There will be a direct link to my store, showing all of the Last Chance items, on June 1. The regular prices will show in my Product List, but when you click on the pictures, you’ll see the sale prices, if they have been discounted.
You can always contact me with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
