Snail Mail


Here is my entry for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge on My Creative Time. This week's challenge was to make a shaped card with some orange on it. My card was inspired by this cute "Snail Mail" stamp from My Pink Stamper's More Punny-licious Stamp Set. I used my Gypsy to weld together the shadow of the envelope from Doodlecharms, at 1 1/4", to the shadow of the snail from Paisley, cut at 3.13". I copied this, flipped it, and welded it together to make a card. Then I added all of my layers.

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specifed)

Cardstock: True Black, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse, Dark Chocolate, Orange Zest, Vintage Cream, and Pure Poppy
Cuttlebug Folders: Swiss Dots, Polka Dots, and Seeing Spots
Vintage Button
Rustic Jute Button Twine
Dark Chocolate and Chai Ink
My Pink Stamper More Punny-licious Stamp Set
White Gelly Roll Pen
