‘Hello’ Snail Button Card

‘Hello’ Snail Button Card

This is a card I made last Spring that was inspired by a cute card I saw on Pinterest.  My friend, Angela Bodas, pinned this cute snail card and  I had owned but never used that stamp set, so I was happy to see something cute to make with it.  I used my Close to My Heart brand “Art Philosophy” Cricut cartridge to cut this large stamp shape from green cardstock and then I cut the shape again on white cardstock and scored the top so that when they were adhered together, it formed a card.

“Hello” Button Snail Card

I used the same Cricut cartridge to cut the white shape and the green shape behind it and then stamped the little snail fella with my Stampin’ Up! stamp.  I wrote “hello!” and attached a button I’d threaded with embroidery floss and attached everything together onto my square paper.  I inked the paper’s edges and attached some paper ribbon.
blog-Button and Brads
Before sticking the square part down, I poked two decorative brads through the paper so that the little brad “legs” wouldn’t show through to the inside of the card when opened.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
