Snailed It Pastel Happy Mail Notecard

by Joanne James6. February 2021 22:46

Today I'm sharing a quick clean and simple card for the challenges over at Color Throwdown and CASology:


I was really drawn to the pastels of the Color Throwdown palette this week and having decided to use them for my Paper Players card tomorrow (you'll have to come back in the morning to see that one!) I ended up making two more cards using the same colours. Here's the first one:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I stamped eight tone-on-tone envelopes from the 'Snailed It' stamp set and diecut them using the co-ordinating die, then layered them in two columns onto a white raised scalloped stitched rectangle. My sentiment is stamped in grey and from the set 'A Little Lace', where I masked off the last part of the sentiment to suit my card. How sweet are those little pieces of colourful happy mail:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

A quick and easy CAS notecard! Tomorrow's card uses these colours again and I will share my third card that features them on Monday.

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
