Little Forest Friends

I was inspired by a recent photo of a giant snail on one of my Friend's blogs to use the Forest Friends 'My cute stamps' set which is available now from Make the Day Special. I love the little characters that are in this set and there are so many little extras like flowers, branches and leaves, you can create some lovely little scenes.

I chose to use the little snail and to make a mini card. I cut a scalloped base using my Nestabilities and then cut some new Basic Grey Green at heart paper to cover the base. I layered this with some green patterned paper and some pale blue and sewed around the edges using a variety of stitches.

I stamped the snail directly onto the background with the greeting. I then stamped the snail on to a piece of white card and coloured him in. I cut him out and stuck him to the card using foam pads and added glossy accents to his shell and eyes. I added a couple of flowers and a gorgeous Fimo button handmade by Jane.
I finished the card off with some bright pink stick on pearls.
Have a lovely Friday!
