Snail Aperture Card

Card making Papercraft Projects

While everybody’s spring cleaning, we’re spring crafting – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This take on Doodlebug Design’s glorious Simply Spring collection by Sarah Jackman Read is first and foremost an adorable one, with cute-as-buttons motifs and a heartwarming sentiment.

1. Create a white blank, 9cm x 16cm, and round off the corners with a corner punch. Matt a piece of spotty paper with rounded corners on top.

2. Trim bug paper to 7.5cm x 14.5cm, round off the corners, then mount on to the card front. Secure a border of sun paper across the middle. Stamp a ‘Snailed it’ sentiment onto white card and apply blue embossing powder to it. Die cut into a 4.5cm stitched oval, then attach in the centre with 3D foam pads.

3. Die cut two 3.5cm stitched ovals from white card, then die cut two 2.5cm stitched ovals through them to create frames. Die cut two 3.5cm ovals from pink paper and adhere behind the frames with 3D foam pads. Fix both ovals either side of the sentiment.

4. Stamp a snail, colour in, then cut out and attach under the sentiment. Add snail stickers in the frames with 3D foam pads, and stickers on the card front to complete.
