Now let’s take a closer look at today’s card.

Isn’t that little snail guy just delightful? Peeking out from beneath the cheerful toadstools, he’s got a little bit of sunshine for someone in his mouth. Did you notice that?

Don’t forget about stamping your words multiple times for a cool addition to your card. Here I inked it up once and stamped it three times, varying the placement each time. The little ‘hello’ from the Best Year stamps is perfect here!

I love our designer series papers when they have big images like this. I can cut them out with my Paper Snips in record time. It really makes my card making quicker.
