Snail Mail

My husband reminded me today that his mother's birthday is tomorrow and he had forgotten to have me make a card for her.  So, I took a study break and made this one:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4 and made from a pink premade card base.  I cut some white card stock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8.  I then cut some pink floral patterned card stock with a die from Jaded Blossom.  It is part of the Card Mat Dies set.

The stamp shaped background is from the "Phrases" Cricut cartridge.  I cut it at 3 3/4" wide.  The snail is from the "Birthday Bash" Cricut cartridge.  It was cut at 3" wide.  I hid the features for the eyes and cheeks.  Instead, I used some pink chalk for the cheeks and a Peachy Keen stamp for the eyes.  It is from the Kawaii Face Assortment.  I then added a little detail to the eyes and cheeks with a white gel pen.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom.  It is from the Sweet Birthday Wishes set and stamped on a piece of pink card stock cut with another part of the Card Mat Dies set.
