The Snailed It Stamp Set has the cutest mailcarriers you have ever seen! Talk about Happy Mail! Decorate all your letters and parcels with these adorable snails. You are sure to brighten someone’s day!

It’s hard to see in the picture, but I also used the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (one of my favorite Stamping Tools!) to create a “snail trail” of glitter. In person, it adds just the right touch of sparkle and whimsy!

And you can certainly get creative when coloring in your snail images – who says snails can’t be pink? 😄 I love the color palette used on this card – I definitely could have gone with a softer green but I thought the Shaded Spruce really brightened up the color combination! What do you think?

Cut out using your scissors and adhere to the center/bottom of card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
