I’m back with another card and some ideas about how to stretch your craft supplies.
The idea behind this card was to use a small stamp set called Happy Mail from Create A Smile in a different creative way. I thought that a cute little snail would be perfect for a “late birthday wishes”. Believe or not, although I try hard, I’m often late to send my cards! 😉
So I partially masked the snail stamp before inking it as I didn’t need the envelope images for this project, but just the snail itself. After coloring it with copic markers and preparing a background by blending some distress inks on the card front (I’ll leave all the exact colors I used below), I flipped through the stamps in my stash and found some little accessories to add. So the gift boxes are from a Christmas set. I just colored them differently and they were immediately transformed into a birthday presents. The sentiment was composed from two different stamp sets: the words “Birthday Wishes” are from WPlus9 set and I used some letters from Simon Says Stamp’s Game Tiles set to personalize this card and make the sentiment match the cute snail stamp.
That’s pretty much all for today! Hope I encouraged you look through your stash and think about possible alternative use of the stamps you already have.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
