Stamped with Love Red & Blue Card

Friends, today I'd like to share a card from the Stamped with Love set. As someone who's been penpalling since the age of 10, I love this stamp set!

This design is inspired by a card by American demonstrator Cindy Coutts. I then changed it to reflect my own style.

Here's my card:

To make this card, I started by stamping the mailbox from the Stamped with Love Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Basic White Cardstock. I then used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and a ruler to draw lines above and below the "Post" word, extending them on an angle to the side of the post box. 
I used my Real Red and Orchid Oasis Stampin' Blends™ to colour the mailbox. Then I cut out the mailbox with Paper Snips scissors.

Using Tailor Made Tag Dies, I cut out a small tag from Basic White Cardstock. I stamped my sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto it. Then I fed a small length of Sweet Sorbet Bordered Ribbon through it, tied, and trimmed with Paper Snips scissors.

Here's a closer look at the terrific Stamped with Love Stamp Set:

Using the Sent with Love Dies, I die cut a tiny heart from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock and adhered it to the envelope on the mailbox. While these dies have a similar name to our featured stamp set, they are actually part of another mail-oriented bundle.

I also die cut a Basic White Cardstock panel, using the 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" die from the Perennial Postage Dies.

These are a great set of dies, which I've found myself using not just for mail-oriented projects but for many cards:

To assemble, I started by adding 1 1/4" x 5 1/4" strips of 2022-2024 In Color™ Textured Specialty Paper to a 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White Cardstock panel. The finish of this specialty paper adds a very nice shimmery effect to the card.

I adhered my die-cut Basic White panel. Using Stampin' Dimensionals™, I added the tag and mailbox to the panel, then attached the panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base.

To finish the card, I embellished with 2022-2024 In Color™ Pearls, pictured below.
