Valentine's and Mailbox

We're having a great challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create. The challenge is always anything goes but this week's optional twist is to create a gift set. Any type of gift set you want to create will do. Our sponsors this week are Kenny K Downloads, The Stamping Chef and Flat Friends Boutique.


I chose to do a set of Valentine's cards and a Mailbox. I am using Heart Teddy Bear from Kenny K Downloads for my project. This was very fun and I am sending it to my niece so she has a place to put all her Valentine's cards from school. The mailbox is a cut file from Silhouette's Online store. All of the designer paper is from Stampin' Up!'s set called Candy Lane. The mailbox was very easy to cut and assemble. I also used a Valentine spin game cut file and replaced the heart with the Heart Teddy Bear to match the cards. I printed the teddy bear and sentiment on vanilla card stock and colored all the bears with Copic markers (R24, R27, R29 for the heart the bear is holding on the mailbox and E81, E84, E87, E89 for the bear's body on all the cards and the mailbox). I paper pieced the heart that the bear is holding on all of the cards using designer paper from Stampin' Up. The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is from Doodle Pantry. I mounted them on red card stock leaving a little room on the bottom for 5 clear crystals.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
