Lawn Fawn Video {4.25.24} Mindy’s Cute Garden Snail Slider Card

Mindy is here to inspire us with an adorable slider card featuring Garden Snail! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Mindy shows us how she cut the Garden Snail pieces from white cardstock before coloring them with ink blending. I love the cute, dotted detail she added to the snail. Then she paper-pieced the snail and grass in a black outline with the help of double-sided adhesive sheets.

For the background, Mindy started with Mermaid cardstock, stenciling the Cloud Background with Merman ink. She also inked a panel for the ground with Distress Oxide in Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. Then she included clouds from All the Clouds and a little All the Speech Bubbles greeting!

She had a little trouble with the slider in the video and suggests that watching the Intro to Slide on Over would be helpful. Here’s a slider tip: if using 3 layers of foam on the slider piece, you will also need 3 layers of foam to attach the card front to the base. And another tip: using a bit of anti-static powder on the edges of the foam on the slider piece will cut down on any stickiness.

Such a fun and happy way to send a smile! Thank you so much for sharing with us, Mindy!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Franci’s Garden Snail Card with a Surprise

Franci created a simply adorable card featuring Garden Snail and Heart Garden Stencil! She added a fun surprise to let you take this little snail off the card!

Franci’s simple design starts with Heart Garden Stencil and some pretty Distress ink colors! She used Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Rustic Wilderness, Tumbled Glass and Spiced Marmalade. In addition to stenciling the card, she also stenciled a matching envelope!

She paper-pieced the Garden Snail, adding rosy cheeks and a little heart. She used cardstock in Paper Bag, Guava, Vanilla Malt and Black Licorice. Then she cut a slit in the stenciled card front and attached it to a Scalloped Rectangle with foam tape.

Next, Franci glued a mini clothespin to the back of her snail and popped it into the slit on the card! Surprise! Now the Garden Snail can hold your place in a book or click together important papers. Maybe clip it on the ribbon a gift package to hold the card or tag. What ideas do you have for using Franci’s clip-able Garden Snail! Let us know in the comments below.

Thank you for sharing this cute and clever card idea with us, Franci!

I just love Marine‘s Reveal Wheel card featuring both Happy Potted Flower and Garden Snail! The colors are so bright and happy! She also included a cute little mushroom from Garden Gnome along with a message from Say What Spring Critters.

Marine combined pretty shades of cardstock for the paper-piecing. The Happy Potted Flower set includes a separate die for the petals, making it so easy to use lots of different colors! She also used pretty papers from Really Rainbow and Watercolor Wishes Rainbow!

As the wheel is turned, the pretty flower changes expressions! How fun is that!

Wow, Yainea‘s Garden Snail card is so beautiful! She started by cutting all the pieces for the snail and Happy Mushroom from colored cardstock before adding shading with alcohol markers. And she also cut a Grassy Hillside from green cardstock, then colored the tufts of grass with markers. To finish her design, she added a sentiment from Gleeful Gardens!

Elise‘s trio of Happy Potted Flowers are so bright and cheery! She paper-pieced them with happy cardstock colors and striped Rainbow Ever After paper for the pots! The Big Scripty Words sentiment is so perfect as the greeting!

I love how Megan framed her Garden Snail on a scalloped circle! She stenciled clouds and a simple hillside before adding the paper-pieced snail and grass. Then she added more fun details with Fruit Salad paper and a bow from Merry Mistletoe. And then she finished the card with a greeting from Yay, Kites and a sentiment from All the Speech Bubbles! So adorable!

Audrey‘s Happy Potted Flower tags are so cheerful! She used Fruit Salad gingham paper to cut the Stitched Circle Tags as the base. Then she paper-pieced the flower with a white border and Copic colored petals. I love the googly eyes that add so much charm!

Latisha‘s Garden Snail is so full of whimsy! She colored the snail with happy colors before adding dots and cute eyelashes! And then she carried those colors to the Spring Blossoms stenciled background! Simply adorable!

Grace created a super fun interactive card featuring Happy Potted Flower and Magic Color Slider! She used lots of pretty Rainbow Ever After paper and small potted flowers and sentiments from Garden Before ‘n Afters!

The magic happens when you slide the tab up to reveal a colorful flower!

This is such a fun idea and so easy to make! Check out the Intro to Magic Color Slider video.

Elena colored her cute Garden Snail with Copic markers, giving him the cutest personality! I love how she added the bright red Happy Mushrooms to create a scene that is so much fun!

Caly‘s card is so bright and happy! She shows us how perfectly Garden Snail pairs with Delightful Daisy!

Audrey removed the flower from the pot to tuck it into a Build-A-Drink Mason Jar Add-On. It looks so pretty with flowers from Spring Flower Backdrop!

I love how Grace added cute, stamped details from Special Delivery to create a cute “snail mailman”! She also used a sentiment from Gleeful Gardens which has some really cute snail themed sentiments!
