SnailMail card

For this card I used my gypsy to lay out the pieces and since I don't have to change cartridges it is easier to combine cuts.

Cartridges used:

Wild Card for: Snailmail saying cut at height-1.18 inches in purple cardstock.

Paperdolls for Everyday: grass cut at height- 1.07 inches in green cardstock. The taller grass at height- 1.81 inches in a darker green cardstock.

Paisley: the snail and all his layers cut at height -1.32 inches. Used yellow, pale green, purple and pink for the different layers.

Doodlecharms: The mailbox and letter. Mailbox cut at height - 1.53 inches. Used black, red and grey cardstock for the layers. The letter was cut at height - 0.58 inches in pale green cardstock.

George and Basic Shapes: The post for the mailbox. Cut at height - 2.39 inches wide- 0.44 inches in brown cardstock.

Used $1.00 stamps for the butterflies and the Thinking of You sentiment.

Stickles on the snail: yellow. Cinnamon on the eyes.

I cut the snail, grass and mailbox as one piece and then cut layers to give dimension. Used pop dots behide to give dimension also.

The snailmail is glued directly on the card.

Brown ink to ink the edges. Enjoy!
