SNAIL MAIL CARD

It's me again!
I wanted to share this card I made for an online friend.
I made this card using the Sentimental Cricut cartridge and one of the Joy's Life Lots of Pun stamp set. When I couldn't be her designer she still sent me a set of her new stamps and just now I got to use them.  I wanted to share the card I made and the stamp I used from her set. It was very thoughtful of her and I appreciate her kindness.

Snail Mail
5 inches
You can find the card base/shape on page #35 on the card feature. 
The polka dot paper was cut at 4-1/2 inches using the same card feature.

The snail was cut at 2 inches and its shadow came out to be at 2.06 inches.
You can find the snail on page #47. I used foam adhesive to pop up the snail layer.
.
The umbrella is from Everyday Paper Dolls and you can find it on page #41 (accesories2). As you can see I dry embossed the umbrella using the Cuttlebug and a Cuttlebug folder called Swiss Dots. I also added some doodling.

The clouds are also from Everyday Paper Dolls from page #42 and I cut them at 1.79 and 1.99 inches. I stickled them with the Frosted Lace Stickles I received from Helen.

The butterfly is also from the Sentimentals cart and you find it on page 46. I used the shadow image and I made the small circles with my Crop-a-Dile. I also doodled on it this time with white ink.

I added some rub-on flowers to the grass I punched out with a Martha Stewart paper punch. Before I adhered the grass to the card I used the sentiment
Snail Mail
from Joy's

A beautiful card for a beautiful friend,

Thank You Joy!
