other supplies: white card stock, watercolor paper, glitter, glossy accents, ivory burlap string by May Arts, Martha Stewart border punch, Black Staz-On ink, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks, kraft knife, blender pens (SU), tiny yellow gems
Fold white card base so it measures 4.25" x 5.5". Ink edges with distress ink. Cut 5.5" x 4.25" panel from Frosty Blanket paper. Distress edges with scissors and by ripping in places. Ink edges with distress ink and adhere to front of card base. Stamp sentiment in lower left corner in black ink. Stamp mailbox image and decorative post in black Staz-on ink onto water color paper. Color with various inks and a blender pen. Use coordinating die to cut post and free hand cut the bird and mailbox image. You will need a kraft knife to get into the tiny spaces. Use MS border punch to create border for top of card. I used the left over strip from punching that for a border at the bottom. Before adhering, cover with glossy accents and sprinkle with glitter. After they have dried, adhere to the bottom and top of card. Next, add glossy accents and glitter to foilage on mailbox. I also added tiny, yellow rhinestones to the center of poinsettia. When dry, adhere post and mailbox image to right of card base. Some of the poinsettia and foilage will go off of the card. Tie ivory, burlap string around decorative border at top and add a glittered button to the middle. I added the glitter using glossy accents. I also added some glitter to the main panel in places on the designer paper.
