Sending Some Snail Mail Love

I know you've heard me say it before about other stamp sets, bundles and suites, but when I first laid eyes on the Snail Mail Suite, I was smitten!  Who knew snails could be so cute?!

Even though I couldn't wait to play with it as soon as it arrived, I saved this adorable Snail Mail Suite of products to make a Valentine's card for my sweetie.

To make this Sending Some Snail Mail Love Card, I used almost the entire Snail Mail Bundle (MC, p. 54-55), a sentiment from the Always in My Heart Stamp Set, and a large heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies (I love them!).

Because this is a Valentine's card, it was only fitting that I pull in the sentiment from the Always In My Heart Stamp Set (MC, p. 12).

Here's how to make this card:

1.  Die cut a large heart using the Stitched Be Mine Dies from Real Red cardstock and emboss it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
2.  Die cut the large postage square from Basic White cardstock, the envelope from Bermuda Bay cardstock, and a small heart from Blushing Bride cardstock using the Snail Dies.
3.  Punch a postage stamp from Basic White cardstock using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and cut it in half.
4.  Die cut a snail from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper using the Snail Dies.
5.  Cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Snail Mail Designer Series Paper for your card front and a 13/16" x 4-1/4" strip of Blushing Bride cardstock.
6.  Stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink onto the large die cut postage square near the top.
7.  Layer your card front onto a piece of 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock that is scored and folded in the center at 5-1/2".
8.  Adhere the strip of Blushing Bride cardstock across the center.  Tie on some Whisper White twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack over the Blushing Bride strip.
9.  Adhere the large square postage piece with the sentiment top right and the large embossed heart top left.
10.  Put the envelope together using Mini Glue Dots and adhere the heart in the front center of the envelope, also using Mini Glue Dots.  Adhere the half-cut punched postage stamp piece to the inside of the envelope.
11.  Finish off your card by adhering the snail to the left of the envelope using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Lastly, add on some red Resin Hearts to the sentiment piece, and you're done!

What a sweet Valentine's card this turned out to be!  The colors in the paper, those adorable snails, and pulling in sentiments from other stamp sets to say what you want to say have me head over heals for the Snail Mail Suite!
