Happy Birthday card

Hello Crafty Friends,

I'd like to show you my very first card made in 2021.
I used Picot Petite Circle from Amazing Paper Grace to die cut two decorative circles.

I stamped the sentiment from SDS-166 All Occasion Sentiments. This set is really versatile with 12 sentiment stamps and 3 coordinating metal dies.

The flowers are handmade using Amazing Paper Grace dies. The biggest one is made with S4-1025 Sweet Cottage Flowers. Purple flowers are created using one of my favourite S4-1015 Candlewick Rosebud (by the way, this die is on sale and the price is amazing).

White flowers are created with dies from June 2020 Die of The Month - A2 Snip It Grid Calendar Creator.


I used a ScrapBoys paper "Dream Garden".

Thank you and have a nice day.
Please leave me a comment if you like it

Amazing Paper Grace January Die of the Month Blog Hop – Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox


Remember the days in grade school when you dreamed of all the little envelopes you would collect in your pouch from Valentine's Day? Well, we gotcha covered! Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2021, the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these wonderful dies to create with.

Sweet hearts and petite envelopes are a symbol of love. The Amazing Paper Grace Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox harkens back to the days where you thought that the number of envelopes measured how loved you were. No worries, this elegant mailbox holds a bouquet of enveloped surprises and is a clever way to hide some cute little messages. Oh, and the front of the mailbox opens! Becca uses the inspiration from a vintage mailbox as the basis for this elegant representation where romantic and cute go hand in hand.

Don't worry if you don't have a sweetheart this year. After the holiday, this set can be used as a blue mailbox. Did you notice it is a mini-sized 3D Vignette?! Built just like the grand sized vignettes that came before it, this little mini stands 4.75-inches tall and folds flat for mailing to your sweetheart!


There are 17 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox



My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

I create a Mini Mailbox with hearts in white, pink, blue and gold colour. In front, I added a gold pattern and put it under a white die-cut. I offset it a little to add some chic. 
I used a white paper with small cute owls.

My second project is a white card with a mint die cut. I decorated it my a bow and a gold sentiment "MAIL".  I also added a small envelope full of hearts.






Supplies:
Stamps: none
Paper: gold paper, texture paper, "What a Hoot" pad
Ink: none
