3 Happy Snails

Welcome

This card was made for a three year old boy's birthday - and what small boy is not fascinated with creepy crawlies, and snails in particular!


I  had coloured the snails as part of the 30 day Marker Challenge. and decided to put them to good use on this card.


After fussy cutting them I adhered them on the black base, and used a metallic pen with a 
co-ordinating colour for their trails.


The greeting was stamped and embossed using a sparkling green ep, and then the letters were coloured with a glitter ball point.

The black panel was mounted over a white glitter card, and then onto a blue base.  The final details were the silver stars.

Maxine, this is an adorable card - snail mail is the best. ;) And it reminds me of "slow" which is what I was in telling you Happy Birthday.

Very cute snails, Maxine. I like the way you've given them their own trail.

What a fun card, Maxine, perfect for a small child. I used to teach four and five year olds and they loved anything to do with snails, worms, spiders and other bugs! x

A 3yr old boy is going to just love this one! And brilliant idea to use the metallic pens to show the snail trail. Glad that you had these ready to put on a special card for a sweet little boy, who will adore this! TFS & Hugs. Happy wkend.

This is super cute, Maxine! I hate snails IRL, but just love stamps of them and think they're adorable. It seems weird, but I guess we do the same with mice, right?! The little guy will love his card!! Hugs, Darnell
