Special Delivery! All the fun things of the season right there! Snail mail, snowflakes, jingle bells and snow!
I went with a Mini Slimline Card for this one. I used Spellbinders Precision Layering Mini Slimline A and B sets to cut my layers. I really like these dies because they are heavier and hold the rectangle shape better than the thin silver ones do. I don’t like it when I die cut layers and they’re wonky!
I tore a piece of white cardstock for the mailbox to stand in (snowdrift) and die cut it with the same layer die as the blue background size. I used Prize Ribbon Regular Distress Ink to ink up the background this time. I spattered on some water droplets. I like to spray water into the palm of my left hand, then I rub both my hands together so they’re both wet, then I clap over the inked background to spatter the water drops. I let it sit a minute, then lay a paper towel over it to get the extra water.
Then I spattered on some diluted white acrylic paint.
I die cut the mailbox post from woodgrain cardstock and the mailbox from silver mirror cardstock.
I die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, then glued the gold on top of the white.
The jingles bells and ‘garland’ are from the NEW More Holiday Decor die set. I love how cute the little bow is on the super cute jingle bells I die cut in silver mirror cardstock also.
I love that there’s just enough dimension to add perspective. It’ll still mail in an envelope for one stamp.
I used the thin mounting tape, I’ll link below, behind the mailbox post and box on this card and yesterdays.
Finished size is 3 ½ in. x 6 ½ in. So happy to have a start on Christmas cards! I can’t believe we’re half way through July! I need to get more done!
I’ll be back soon….we have to keep making!
Here’s what I used to make this card…
