Totem Snail Side-Step Card

Have you tried a Side-Step Card before? How about trying a Totem Snail Side-Step Card?

Lilian (The Leaf Studio) here today to share a fun card:

Spring is almost here!!! The weather has been pretty good around here!

Time to put some plant pots outside! I hope I don’t forget to water them! =)

How-To Snail:

1. Take the pieces off the carrier.

2. Use Gel Sticks to color the Totem Snail. Apply some color and smudge it with your finger (I used green for the body and red, orange and silver for the shell). For the shell, I drew some patterns on the shell before smudging:

Optional: Seal the pieces after coloring them to avoid dirty fingers. You could use Gel Medium or sealer of your choice. Let dry.

3. Assemble the Totem Snail, using Mini Brads – Assorted Greens. I used 2 light green and one darker green brads. Set aside.

How-To Card:

1. Use a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of cardstock for the card base (I followed the tutorial from HERE to trim and score the card). You can adjust the width of your panel and/or steps for different looks, depending on the size of your stamps and embellishments…

2. I trimmed designer paper to decorate the side panel and the steps.

3. I layered digital stamps, printed and cut them out (optional: use rubber and/or clear stamps + ink pads if digital isn’t your thing!).

4. Color the images with markers (I used a green fabric marker and alcohol-based ones) and adhere them on the steps.

5. Adhere the Totem Snail on the panel.

P.S.: I had a video tutorial, but I don’t know what happened to it…Maybe I deleted it by accident…maybe it was one of my kids…Sorry!!! I’ll see if I can edit a new one again…

ETA: Here’s the video tutorial!!! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
