When I heard the theme I chose this gorgeous Digital Delights Snowy Postbox scene (which is perfect for Cindy's theme) and was provided by Stitchy Bear Digital stamps who are sponsoring our challenge this time. . I added a bit of colour to the very English postbox and scene with Promarkers then die cut it to fit inside the Spellbinders postage stamp die edging it with gold Krylon pen, and to make it more like a stamp I franked it with a Marianne stamp. Keep Calm ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. The paper is Papermania Daisy and Dandelion Christmas paper. I ran the die cut image through again with the rubber mat to enhance the embossing on it
Although I grew up with post boxes like this on every street they are now quite rare and the ones we have now are modern rectangles on a pole which don't take large items at all. I had to google it to get the colours just right, was the frame of the schedule a different colour? What about the letters and crown? I found lots had the insignia painted over in red, but some had gold. This letterbox must be particularly old because GR is King George, later ones had ER for Queen Elizabeth, the R is Regina of course.
I posted this card into the following challenges:
Still using the postage stamp die, which I ran through with the rubber mat to enhance the embossing on it. I used Dear Mr Claus with its three cute penguins and an American style post box and the image is coloured with Promarkers, which is a Stitchy Bear stamp also provided by Stitchy who are sponsoring this challenge exclusively. This time I used the Singing Penguin ribbon exclusive to Crafty Ribbons. The paper is by Papermania.
So two more Christmas cards done, YAY!
