Snail Mail!

Hello Everyone this is Summer from http://www.cricutdiaries.com/http://www.cricutdiaries.com/ and this week all the Dt ladies were asked to make a card or frame using a cricut cut "shell". I went through http://www.cricutsearch.com/http://www.cricutsearch.com/ and the only "sea shell" that I had was a very small one from Everyday Paper Dolls and while looking at this cart for another card I saw this "snail shell" and figured a shell is a shell...right??
Recipe:
Imagine More Cards Imagine Art Cartridge
12x12 white sheet card stock
Pink card stock
Distress Ink "Walnut Stain" with small finger dobber
Stickles (I used green and brown)
Collage podge with small paint brush

This was so easy since I was able to just hit my layers button and pretty much be done, The front images and all it's layers were cut @5 inches. The blue and white square were cut for the inside at 4.7 and 4.4, for the small snail I just copied the large snail and changed the size to 2 inches.

The backing to this card was cut from a 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 peice of pink card stock. All edges were inked with Distress Ink. If you all havent noticed yet it's my fave!

I then tried the collage podge for the first time on something cut and printed from the imagine and my colors seemed to start to bleed. I was looking for a shiny shell and I just ont think that this was the correct product to use.

Inside veiw.
