Snail Mail

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today. It’s 2020 and this year, I’m making a new years resolution to send more happy mail out. I have a huge collection of cards and would love to not hoard them. So to kick off this resolution, I pulled out the Mr. Snailman stamp set to share create a fun & simple card. 

I stamped out my images using Fadeout ink because I wanted to do some no line coloring. Once I colored up all my images using copic markers, they were ready for a card.

 

For the top and bottom of my card, I blended distress inks using the Blending Buddies to create the sky and ground. I then heat embossed the sentiment in white on black cardstock. To finish off the card, I added a few Cinnamon Red Hots – Jelly Drop Hearts embellishments around the sentiment. I also decided to stamp the “Hooray for” sentiment right on top and it really completed the card. One additional touch I added was that I trimmed my card panel to 4″ x 5.25 and lined my card base with some striped washi. It just matched perfectly! 

I just adore how this card turned out and it’s such a simple card to send out! Also, you can of course, stamp using black ink but I’ve just been practicing my no line coloring. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
