The Stamp Market – Merry Mail Gift Card Mailbox and Stitched Alphabet Tags + GIVEAWAY

Hi, Friends!!!

I hope you’re excited for today’s blog hop for The Stamp Market. There is an awesome sale in the shop (up to 55% off stamps and dies!), so be sure to check it out! All the supplies and links are provided below for you. I’ve got two projects to share with you so let’s dive right in!

My first project features the Merry Mail stamp set with the coordinating Mailbox dies. The mailbox giftcard can be be a stand-alone element, but I’ve decided to put it on a cardbase today. There is a tab folded upward on the backside of the bottom of the mailbox and a tab on the pull tab folded downward on the frontside that when pulled out, the two meet and catch so the pull tab is always secured on the card.

I die-cut my mailbox and pull tab from Cherry Kisses cardstock and ink-blended around it to give it some dimension using a Blending Brush. To decorate, I stamped images from the Merry Mail stamp set using Color Crush Inks from The Stamp Market (Mossy, Cactus, Cherry Kisses. I also die-cut the envelope and ink-blended with some Sea ink (as well as the bottom of my card base).

Before adhering everything together, I embossed the sentiment on the mailbox with white embossing powder. I die-cut the mailbox slit and backed it with black cardstock, but only added dry adhesive on the top and sides (so the envelope can still slide in). Then I added my pull tab loosely to make sure I didn’t adhere foam adhesive anywhere that would obstruct the sliding mechanism before adhering it over my cardbase. Finally, I decorated the mailbox with the Merry Mail holly, pine and berry images, added some glitter drops and attached my giftcard using some temporary adhesive. I love how appropriate that Dear Santa Starbucks giftcard is for this project!

One of the other special products being released today is the Stitched Tag and Stitched Alphabet sets. I die-cut each letter for my family’s initials and die-cut them into circles before stitching with DMC 5 thread using a deep plum color (#915).

After stitching the letters, I die-cut another circle slightly bigger using metallic gold cardstock and adhered my stitched letters over it using foam adhesive. Before die-cutting my tags, I stamped and embossed white cardstock panels with the Perfect Polka Dot Background stamp and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered my stitched letters over the polka dot tab and then decorated each piece with a holly/pine/berry bunch then finished off my tag with gold twine and a bow cut from the same embroidery thread used to stitch the letters with.

  1. OHMYSTARS! Your projects have sent my festive spirit soaring! The Mailbox set makes me ever so merry; delightful way to add jazz-and-pizzazz to gift cards! And the alpha stitch dies: LOVE X LOVE! As a long-time cross-stitcher (and one who needs to get back to doing so), these are fabulous! Love the personalized set you’ve created for your family! Both of these are going straight onto my wish lists!
