Love Mail--PP330

February 5, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at  The Paper Players!

I am happy to be the hostess this week.  Our theme challenge is, "Will You Be My Valentine"?  Make a Valentine for someone special to you.  It can be for a parent, partner, spouse, bf, gf, child, grandchild, neighbor or someone that makes your life happier.  Have fun!  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created for my Sweetie!  I hope he will like it!

My card is created on a white card base.  I distressed the top part of the card with blue ink.  The two green panels were cut using the Lawn Fawn Hillside Border dies.  I inked the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress ink. I created the mailbox using the Lawn Fawn Happy Mail Die using Kraft paper and Early Expresso card stock for the post.  The little envelopes were made with a few scraps of Valentine paper using the same die set.  The envelopes actually open!  

The two little birds were stamped from the Love Letters stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  I stamped the sentiment using different stamp sets.  "Love mail" is from My Creative Time Puffy Hearts Just For You.  I just had this Happy Valentine's Day in my stash.  Sorry, not sure where it is from.   I added three small red hearts for fun.  Wink of Stella was added on the birds for shine.  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
