Love Mini Card

Hi everyone :-D

Today I have another CAS (clean and simple), one layer, mini card to share with you. It´s this Love Mini Card

I know, snail again, but I have so many ideas what to do with this little guy. :-D

This was quick and easy to make card. This is a CASE of my Enjoy Card. I was also inspired with Chakra Colors and challenges at challenge blogs I am applying to with this card (at the end of this post).

I cut out card base from a white cardstock paper and rounded two opposite corners with round corner paper puncher. Card dimensions are 76 mm x 101 mm (3" x 4"). 

I stamped mini snail from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set on card base, colored it with colored pencils and covered it with transparent varnish to create glossy accents.

I drew path and wrote sentiment with a black superfine permanent pen.
I embellished the card with sparkling green confetti hearts. I glued them on the card base with transparent varnish (glue was acting weird). I bought these confetti in 2013, just because they were in pretty glass vial. I thought I´ll never use them, but I was wrong. LOL :-D

List of supplies: 
  • Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'
  • white cardstock paper 
  • Koh-i-noor Mondeluz aquarell colored pencils (Titanium White 3, Meadow Green 4, Dark Green 5) 
  • colored pencils (skin color, pink)

  • Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black) 
  • sparkling green confetti hearts
