Rural Delivery......

 .......this little mail box looks just like mine when I have mail! I wanted to try something I saw on Pinterest that had a little mailbox on a  card. I thought this was just too cute to pass up making one myself! Of course we had to make a pretty mail box with glittery letters!!!! And since my parcels that come in the mail are way too big for this mail box, I made a small envelope to fit a very small card!

 I embossed my mailbox post with a woodgrain embossing folder, sponged it with walnut stain so that the grain would show through a bit. I sponged the clouds in the background and then made the mailbox which was then glued to the card.  When the red flag is up...."you know you have mail".
I hope you have crafty goods coming to your mailbox soon!!!!

  5. Oh no this is so darn cute as you would say. I love your mailboxes, we just have letterboxes in our front doors, nowhere near as pretty. This is brilliant
