Christmas in July? For all of you ready to start working on your holiday cards, Spellbinders has some fresh new die sets that are part of their gorgeous new Winter Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. The Letter Box is so versatile….you can use the mailbox by itself….add Christamas gifts or letters….or turn it into a birthday card by changing the colors and sentiment. I added fun little details from two other Spellbinders kits.
To start this card, I ink blended the blue panel on 80 lb. card stock, which I think embosses more crisply. I then embossed the background for added interest. I die cut all my pieces, “aged” the white post with a distress crayon and added a few white accents to the mail box with a gel pen. I then assembled my card with glue and foam tape.
