Good morning and happy Friday! Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.
I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me! If not, here’s the replay!
Note – my internet did me wrong yesterday (thank you, XFinity) and this ended up being a two-parter. So – when you hit the end of Part 1 – here’s the link to Part 2! 🙂
I am loving the Snailed It Suite – with the bundled Snail Dies and fun Snail Mail DSP – WAAAAY more than I thought I would when I first saw it in the catalog – it’s just so stinkin’ cute! And I love a good fun-fold, so…I saw Lisa Curcio’s pop-up card and used her mechanism to create my own using this fun suite. Take a look-see:
The layout for the front of this card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.
I started by adhering a piece of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat for the card front. Then I used the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut a second design, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the cool mushroom (or…are they toadstools?!?) image from Snailed It in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then I cut it with the die from the bundled Snail Die set.
I colored the image with my Light Bermuda Bay and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, and both of the Daffodil Delight Markers. Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word bubble image from Snailed It in Real Red on Basic White – then added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay. I cut it with the matching die in the Snail Dies and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside, I used Tear-and-Tape Adhesive to create the 3/4″ x 3/4″ box mechanism that makes the Pop-up part of the pop-up card work! It started with a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Real Red, scored at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 3″ along the shorter side. Then it’s adhered into the box with the Tear-and-Tape.
I also used Tear-and-Tape to secure it inside the card (this is all in Part 1 of the video!). Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of the Snail Mail DSP to the front of the box.
I adhered a Bermuda Bay-matted piece of Snail Mail DSP to the top of the card inside, then added a fussy cut snail from the DSP.
I used a die in the Snail Dies to cut the little pink snail – and fussy cut some shrooms – then adhered them all to the front of the box-mechanism. I created – if you will – a snail-o-rama…. 😉
I repeated the mushroom image from the front of the card on a Basic White panel, matted it on Bermuda Bay and then into the card. The card front is also adhered with Liquid Glue. Some white and red Resin Hearts finished it all off!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Snailed It mushrooms on the front…
…and more of the Snail Mail DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! It’s pretty hard to NOT be loving this Snailed It bundle – with the Snail Dies letting you cut the images straight from the Snail Mail DSP!! And they’re all just so danged cute!
And – on a fun-fold?! Yes, please! I hope you like!
