Remember the days in grade school when you dreamed of all the little envelopes you would collect in your pouch from Valentine’s Day? Well, we gotcha covered! Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2021, the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.
Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these wonderful dies to create with.
Sweet hearts and petite envelopes are a symbol of love. The Amazing Paper Grace Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox harkens back to the days where you thought that the number of envelopes measured how loved you were. No worries, this elegant mailbox holds a bouquet of enveloped surprises and is a clever way to hide some cute little messages. Oh, and the front of the mailbox opens! Becca uses the inspiration from a vintage mailbox as the basis for this elegant representation where romantic and cute go hand in hand.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a sweetheart this year. After the holiday, this set can be used as a blue mailbox. Did you notice it is a mini-sized 3D Vignette?! Built just like the grand sized vignettes that came before it, this little mini stands 4.75-inches tall and folds flat for mailing to your sweetheart!
There are 17 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox
My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox
I have made three projects today – a card, a 3D vignette and a mailbox box that holds some delicious heart shaped chocolates.
I thought the Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month – Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox die would create a cute little box that would be perfect for putting in a special treat for your valentine. The front opens up for a secret message and I have a blank back for your special message. I have wrapped some heart shaped chocolates and added some handcrafted roses using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken, I love the sweet little bow from the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Frame Gala Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken and they added a cute little touch to the box.
For my card I have used the Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month – Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox die as a decorative background highlighting the pretty pattern paper and complemented by handcrafted roses using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken, I have also added the decorative die from the Amazing Paper Grace All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken for more interest behind the mailbox. The other flowers and leaves I have used are from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken. The tag is from a retired Spellbinders die set – A2 Valiant Honour.
The 3D vignette evokes an image of a celebration in a very romantic setting following a receipt of a valentine. Who wouldn’t love to receive a valentine beneath the Eiffel Tower! The hearts and mail images further enhance the feeling of love and celebration in the air!
I found it really important to watch Becca’s videos and read the instructions on how to create 3D vignette cards and taking my time making the 3D vignette.
