And here's what our Design Team came up with!
I LOVE postage themed images and have quite a few in my collection! I used these Postacard 2 and Cat Mail images from Stitchy Bear for this week. Then the Postage dies from Spellbinders came out, and then I had to start to rein myself in! Check out my blog for more details on construction....
For my mailbox I used craft cardstock and inked it with different distress inks colors. I also used a mail related embossing folder and a Graphic 45 fairy stamp.
Of course the most important element in the project is this lovely digi "Letter`s Home" provided by our generous sponsor Stichy Bear Stamps.
I colored the digi with Spectrum Noir pens and when I finished I distress it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, to add a vintage look.
When I heard the theme I found this gorgeous Snowy Postbox scene from Delicious Doodles which is perfect. I added a bit of colour to the very English postbox and scene with Promarkers then die cut it to fit inside the Spellbinders postage stamp die, and to make it more like a stamp I franked it with a Marianne stamp. Ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
Still using the postage stamp die I used Dear Mr Claus with its three cute penguins and an American style post box. Again the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
So two more Christmas cards done, YAY!
Dear Mr. Claus and Snowy PostBox. Letters for Santa are a Christmas tradition. Kids write their christmas wishes.

And at last...here's my card, late again! Just manged to get it posted seconds before midnight on Monday! I've used "Letters Home" I've 3D-ed her, just a little bit, coloured her with ProMarkers, then used some of the post cards (made them very small) also supplied by Stitchy, along with some punched out stamp shapes to frame the image..
