i-Crafter Shakin' up the Mailbox

 Hello!  Thank you for visiting me today.  Please scroll down for my TMS project, too.  This month's release is all Lori Whitlock dies - you know I'm such a huge fan of her SVGs.  It's fun to work with her designs in die form, too.

I am featuring the Mailbox die set Lori Whitlock - this is such a fun 3D Spring set but I didn't want to make just the mailbox.  I wanted to take it beyond what it was truly meant for.  So this is what I did...

Yes, I made a card!  Now if you want all the details on how I made this card, please visit the i-Crafter blog.  But let me summarize.  I used Bristol Smooth card stock to create the base.  I used Distress Oxide inks, so my favorite card is Bristol Smooth with oxide inks - they just blend so well.  I used a cloud stencil by MFT Stamps to make my sky.  Then I made the mailbox lid per the die.

And when you open the mailbox...

I made this into a shaker card!  Isn't this the cutest?!  I love how this turned out.  It was a lot of work and I really did want to do a tutorial but I forgot to keep taking pictures of the steps I took to get this accomplished.  Again, visit the i-Crafter blog for the deets.

Here's a better view of the inside of the mailbox where I used the bird and branch that come in the die set to decorate the inside.  Sorry, I don't remember where I got the sequins.  I've had them for a super long time.

I hope you enjoy my project.  Have a great day!
