Hello friends!! In this video I will create valentine’s themed cards with the Mailbox Combo and Sending Love Combo from Waffle Flower Crafts. Watch as I construct my own mailbox stand and build a little scene with colored cardstock, masks and ink blending!
Mailbox Valentines Card
Watch below or on my Youtube channel.
First, I die cut the mailbox and the door detail from gray cardstock using the Mailbox Die. I then Assembled the mailbox. Next, I die cut several envelopes out of pink and white cardstock. I then inlaid the postage stamps and address negatives from all envelopes, mixing the colors to have variety and using micropore tape to hold everything in place.
Next, I stamped and copic colored some images from the Sending Love Stamp Set. Once the images were colored I then die cut them out with the matching dies. I then created the mailbox stand by stamping three 0.75″ x 5.5″ stripes of white cardstock with the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set in Versamark ink and then heat embossing in white. Next, I ink blended an A2 panel of white Cardstock with New Fish In Pond Dye Ink and a mask I created with contact paper and the Scenery Die.
I then stamped my sentiment onto the mailbox in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Next, I adhered the panel to an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side. I then constructed the stand and trimmed of any over hang from the stripes. Next, I finished the card by adhering the mailbox, envelopes and mouse.
