Make it Monday: Snails!!

Hello friends! I’m still doing a ‘Card a Day in May’ so I also chose a pun for the ‘Make it Monday’ card – how cute are these snails?!! This is after I’ve stamped and coloured them and added some shimmer with Wink of Stella

These are the stamp set and coordinating die outlines (now retired): 

And this is what the stamps and dies look like:

I thought I’d save time by stamping 4 of the stamps at the same time:  

Only problem was that the ink didn’t apply evenly to the stamps; as you can see, some images had too much ink and others not enough! 

I chose two of the more evenly stamped images, hand coloured them with Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers), and cut them out with the coordinating dies:

The silvery ink I used for the sentiment reminds me of the silvery trails snails leave behind:

The leaf pattern from embossing this Stitched Greenery Die (retired) also reminds me of a snail’s trail 🙂

When I finished making the card, it looked a little bare so I added the ‘congrats’ sentiment in black cardstock: 

MEANWHILE … When I recently saw Emily (from A wish for Emily) she was wearing a black choker; they’re currently in fashion! I remember wearing one when I was around the same age and found this old photo so I could show her 🙂

Thank you so much for dropping by and take care with so much covid out in the community ? Megan xo
