Special Delivery

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I grabbed the amazing Mini Mail Die-namics and Mail Delivery Die-namics and set out to create a door, complete with a mail slot. I used the Single Stitch Line Rectangle and Square Frames to create the door detail and a small circle punch for the doorknob. The envelope is cut from Party Patterns Paper Pad. The card is a bigger-than-usual size to keep everything as in scale as possible. :) 




My next card features the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set and the Big Birthday Balloons Die-namics. I overlapped 7 balloons and drew in strings with a Copic Multiliner. The bold sentiment was stamped below the array of balloons. I masked off the area with the sentiment to create a "break" in the strings.
