Snail Mail

I made a quick birthday card recently since I'm trying to build up my stash. As a bonus, I made a dent in my scraps pile.

I'm also trying to use cuts from my Cricut cartridges that I've never used before. This snail is from Paisley, which is one of the first cartridges I bought. I realized there are a lot of cuts on that cartridge that I've never used, so I plan on changing that.   

I love this color combo; it think it's perfect for a little boy. Here's the inside.

Crafty Boots: Blue, old cartridge
Pause Dream Enjoy: For a boy
DL.Art: Anything goes
Card Makin' Mamas: Green
Hiding in My Craft Room: Scraps
Pin and Tack: Anything goes

Use it Tuesday: Die cuts
