Social Stamping - #Oh2020! Snail Mail

It's the end of 2020, and wow it's been a year to forget and looking forward to the New Year.  This month at Social Stamping we are featuring #Oh2020!  

You may have started the hop here so welcome, or you may have come from Lisa Whitehead.

I have been sending cards after COVID19 hit Australia with a bang from March 2020 to share with those that have been in lockdown for many days, weeks and even months.

Today's card features my favourite card design for 2020 and I have been making them since November - the shaker card.  Due to all the online purchases and Australia Post delivering cards every second day, it is really Snail Mail, which has been slower than normal this year with Australia Post taking oh so long to get a card to my friends around South Australia, Australia and around the World.

I have a tutorial with step by step instructions and photographs for this quick and easy shaker card using the Clear Translucent Medium Envelopes just email me and I'll send you a copy (or join my mailing list and you will receive lots of inspiration and tutorials).

Cardstock:  Brushing Bride, Snail Mail Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rectangle Stitched Dies, Clear Translucent Medium Envelopes, Snowflake Sequins, From my Heart Faceted Gems (retired, but they were on the Clearance Rack recently)

  4. Such a fun card Kathryn. I love this version of a shaker and it is so cute with the snail and so apt when considering the time the mail service is taking. xxx
