Valentine Mailbox - Hero Arts Mailbox MthKit 201701

Happy New Year! Just a bit late getting a blog post up in this new year. In my household 2022 was all about our kitchen remodel Mar-Apr. Then end of the year we had the old attic insulation removed and had new non-fiberglass insulation blown in.

Made this card after inspiration from Hero Arts designer, Kate Deignan.

Made a mailbox using both pink & red cardstock. Paper pieced the red pieces onto the pink except for the tiny circle in which I used a red marker. Added tiny punched hearts to small envelopes & arranged small envelopes near Mailbox slot. Grounded the card using a HA grass die. Sentiment stamped is from a HA Mthly Kit Jan 2017.










Supplies

cardstock/paper: blue, green, pink, red, white

Hero Arts: 

  die - Mailbox which includes envelopes,

    Thorn Tree & Grasses - grass

ink - Strawberry

  2017 Jan Monthly Kit -

    stamp - sentiment

punch - Fiskars tiny heart
