Snail Mail Love!

This card was so much fun to make! 

The background is a combination of stencils and stamped images overlayed with torn book pages.

  • Create a background with stencils and stamps in your your desired color scheme.
  • Tear pages from an old book and glue down using a matte medium. I use an old dictionary because it has LOTS of pages, small print and the pages are quite thin, making them easy to glue down.
  • Stamp snail image on a separate piece of white paper and emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Color the image in with water based markers (I use Tombow water based markers).
  • Fussy cut this image out
  • Glue stamped image over your background
  • Stamp sentiment in open area and done!
