Snail Mail: Better Late Than Never Card

Hey, folks!

Here to share this snail mail themed card I made...

I *love* stuff with a snail mail theme!!  The cute snail and "Snail Mail" are from the Quirky Animals Set One stamp set from Your Next Stamp, and I used the coordinating die to die-cut the snail.  I got a great deal on the stamp set and dies when they had them as Deals of the Week!  The "better late than never" sentiment is from their Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set Four stamp set.  I thought it would be cute to have the snail carrying a little envelope, and I decided to add some twine just for fun.  I love the final look! :D

The two postage stamp dies I used are from the Post & Parcel kit from PTI [now sold out].  I used a Double Stitched Hills die from Your Next Stamp on the striped paper the snail is standing on, and I die-cut the sentiment banners using a die from Taylored Expressions' Banner Stacklets 1 die set.

I'm super close to the deadline, but I'm going to enter my card in the current Virginia's View challenge [better late than never, right??]:

I'm also going to enter my card in Your Next Stamp's current sketch challenge:

For some products, the exact version I have is no longer on Amazon, so I've linked to the version that is available.

Until next time! :o)
