Lovely Snail Mail (Create A Smile Guest Design Call)

Hi crafty friends, I am back with this shaker card. I usually don't like pink but I love it in this card! It's perfect for Valentine's Day!


I started out with the background and used Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, and Picked Raspberry Distress inks on Canson Mixed Media Paper, blending the colors together from dark to light. After I was satisfied with the blending, I spritzed it with my Mini Mister which was filled with water and a bit of Perfect Pearls "Pearl" to give it a nice shimmer. I also sprinkled some waterdrops on it and dabbed it of with a paper towel.


To create the shaker card, I die cut a frame from white card stock using Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangle dies. Behind the frame I adhered some acetate and loads of foam tape to give the panel the needed dimension. I filled the shaker with clear, irridescent beads and little letters from the lovely critters stamp set from Create A Smile stamped with Wild Orchid Dye ink.


To embellish the card I also stamped the adorable snail with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers (EB1, EB2, GB8; PL3, PL4, PL5). I used a gold geld pen to highlight the little heart on its shell.


As a sentiment I used the beautiful "love" stamp and stamped it with Wild Orchid Dye ink as well as the smaller sentiment "sending you". I cut out the word "love" and the "sending you" in the shape of a little banner. I adhered the sentiments as well as the snail with glue dots to the acetate.


You might have already guessed (and if you haven't read the title... ;) ): this is, again, a card for the Create A Smile Guest Designer Call :)
