Happy Mail {Scrapy Land #87}

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

For today's project, I used the following dies:

Impression Obsession: Mail Box
Impression Obsession: Grass
Sue Wilson Designs: Just A Note
Sue Wilson Designs: Backgrounds-Swirly Vine

We will be moving in a few weeks and I think this design will be perfect to send our change of address to all our friends that live near and far.

The background is a scrap of fabric that I adhered to a piece of cardstock.  The Mail Box die set is a three piece set, so you can easily cut as many envelopes as you like.  The top envelope is decorated with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Red Berry) to form the heart.

The post is also separate, so you can quickly run that specific die cut through an embossing folder.  I used the Sizzix (Woodgrain) embossing folder and colored the cardstock with Distress Inks (Ground Expresso, Tea Dye).

The sentiment was cut twice, once from fun foam (for dimension) and once from cardstock.  I added the white dots to the solid cardstock using a Sharpie white paint marker.

The Swirly Vine die was also die cut from white cardstock and adhered to the fabric.  The mailbox and tall grass was then tucked in the back of the frame.

All in all, this card came together fairly quickly and I think it will be easy to make lots of multiples of.

Now it's your turn to create a project and upload it to the Scrapy Land Challenge.  You have until April 15 to upload your project.  Two winners will be chosen from all the submissions and each will receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Happy Crafting!
