Love and Hugs
Here's a little matching card to the mailbox I posted last week. I love these little images in the SU Greeting Card Kids stamp set! They're fun to color and so sweet. I think she's perfect on this one! I played with some new toys to create this card. I used my new Grand Calibur with the large scalloped squares to cut the base of this card. I was going for a postage stamp look and I think it worked out pretty nicely. The papers are more of the Martha Stewart Valentines paper pad and the card base is cut from SU kraft. I used a plain white heart doily that you can pick up for a couple dollars at any craft store. I think this package had 12 of them and I bought them in every size available. They're just fun to have around when you're working on Valentine's projects or layouts. I then cut a heart using Spellbinders heart nestabilities and topped it with the pink heart embossed with an SU folder. I used a package of Martha Stewart felt hearts on the mailbox, but I didn't have any small red hearts left so I cut felt with the Spellbinders die and ran it through my sewing machine to add the white stitching. The "love & hugs" is Quickutz Blossom.
I'm working on another little mailbox that I hope to share in the next few days!
