Lots of Pun! - Snail Mail Card

That's what I have been having with the new "Lots of Pun" stamp set by Joy's Life. You can purchase the set here.  A couple weeks ago Joy invited me to be one of her featured designer's to showcase her new stamp set. The card below is my first creation! 
 Here is the recipe:

Card Measures 5.5 x 4.5 inches
Cricut Carts used - Create a Critter and Sentimentals
Designer Paper - DCWV Summer Dreams Stack
Card Stock - DCWV Summer Dreams Stack
Sentiment Stamp- Lots of Pun

The card was cut from the Sentimentals Cart - Page 51, Cut the stamp at 5.5 then flip the image and cut it again, so you have two. This is going to be the card base. If you have design studio or a Gypsy you can weld it together to form the card. If not cut 1/4" stripes of paper and glue them to the top to make the card. *See my video for a better explanation.*
The front blue piece was also cut from page 51 and cut at 5.5 inches. The snail was cut from the Create a Critter cart, page 67, and it was cut at 2.25 inches. The "Lot's of Pun" sentiment was stamped to a piece of paper that measures .75 x 1.25 inches.

The card stock for the inside of the card was cut at 3.5 x 4.5, 3 x 4, and 2.5 x 3.5. The mail box was cut from Create a Critter, page 67, cut at 1.5"

Everything was inked on the edges and the snail, sentiment, and mailbox were applied with foam tape to add dimension.

Happy Srap'n!
