Valentine's Mailbox

Yesterday I went to Target, and I am always scouring the dollar bins to see if there's ever anything "crafty". Well, last night I hit paydirt! I got 2 mini mailboxes, 2 Valentine buckets, and 4 containers of Valentine ribbon that had 3 or 4 different spools of ribbon inside! So, we came home, got the kids in bed, and I went downstairs and created this mailbox. It's the best I could do at 11pm!!!!

Stamps: All Year Cheer III
Paper: Red Cardstock, Figgy Pudding
Ink: White craft, silver gel pen, versamark
Accessories: white e.p., clear e.p., assorted ribbon, 3-d pop up dots, UTEE e.p., heart stencils

I did versamark and UTEE e.p. over and over again about 5 times for the heart on the flag. Then I cut the heart out and stuck it in the freezer for about a half an hour. I took it out and cracked it, which gives the appearance of cracked glass.

Happy Stamping!!!
