Fantabulous Challenge project post.
My niece will be 14 on Sunday and I made this card for her. Sophie is all girl so the timing is perfect for this week's My Craft Spot "Girly Girl" project challenge.
I used Elegant Edges and Plantin SchoolBook for the card base. The pink mat is cut from a metallic paper and embossed with my Cuttlebug.
The snail is from Paisley and cut with scraps left over from my Valentine's Day projects. I enlarged the flower on the shell in order to cut a circle big enough for the little treats cup from Stampin' Up. I filled the cup with pink Smarties (candy coated milk chocolate). The fun googly eyes were a gift from my sweet friend Carri at DoubleClick Connections. I've looked all over for them and have never been able to find them around here - so Carri very kindly sent me a pack. They're always a hit on my critter cards!
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Friends & Neighbours Inside & Out stamp set. I punched it out with a Stampin' Up punch and layered it over the negative cut from the flower on the snail. I did lots and lots of doodling on my card, using both a white gel pen and black marker. I also dressed up my snail with some snow white crinkle ribbon and Divine Valentine baker's twine - both from My Craft Spot.
The inside of my card was stamped with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Candy Corn Kisses stamp set. Although the stamps are from a Halloween line, I thought the sentiment was perfect with the candy card I had made.
