I Brake for Winter Mail


Hi, Braker Fans. I have a new card to share with you for my DT assignment for I Brake for Stamps. This week I decided to make a Christmas card. I used a cute stamp called “Winter Mailbox” from the Digital Downloads selection at I Brake for Stamps.
I colored my mailbox with Copics and added some stickles on the snow, holly berries and poinsettias of my image. I used Bazzill cardstock for the base of my card and mats of my designer papers which are from MME’s Winter Wonderland collection. I cut a few trees from the cardstock with my Marianne Designs dies and brushed them with Making Memories white acrylic paint.
The corner die cuts are from Whimsy Stamps and I ran them through my Xyron sticker maker then covered them with Martha Stewart Garnet Glitter. The poinsettias are from WOC and my ribbon is from Michaels topped with a pearl button from Garner’s. Then I finished the card with a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges.

Make It Monday – Always Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge – U for Up to You
Stamp and Create – Winter Wonderland
