Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  In looking at the sketch my thought was, what a great sketch for some DSP.  So in creating this card, I let the paper do all the work.  With just a touch of stamping for the sentiment the paper did everything else to make this card bright, fun and ready to sent in the mail.  It was so fast and easy I made 8 card in a snap.


The sketch:

    Adorable, though I usually can’t say I care much for snails. However, you handled them very well, and it is a really cute card. The touch of red is perfect.
