Long Live Snail Mail | Woodblock Wednesday

Welcome to the Fifth Edition of Woodblock Wednesday!  Today I’m featuring:

Impress Cherry Blossom Branch [5632F]
Savvy Stamps Long Live Snail Mail [1549C]
My overall design was inspired by THIS card by Julie Ebersole.  I mixed up the design a bit so it isn’t the same but that you can see where I was inspired.  

My card is a hefty 7 layers:

Cardbase
Neenah Solar White
Glitter Cardstock
Studio Calico layer
Studio Calico layer
Neenah Solar White frame
Main Image/Sentiment

Why do I cover my cardbase?  I bought a bunch of ‘cheap’ folded cards.  Unfortunately they aren’t even white but kind of a blue grey that I find very distracting [lesson learned], but I still want to use them up.

I’ve been enjoying designing with a ton of white space lately but love a pop of color, this time I’m using glittery cardstock.

My copic colors:

YR000 | YR00 | YR01
G00 | G12
E40

The sentiment has a coordinating Cute Snail [yes, I own it] but this time I went for a different look. 


Have you noticed that I’ve been creating more floral designs?  I’ve never really thought of myself as a floral girl but I’ve been warming up to them lately.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
