MFT January 2017 Release Countdown--Day 3

It's Day 3 of My Favorite Things January Release Countdown and today there's a
 fun Valentine postal theme with a Mailbox Die-namics and coordinating sentiments.

I masked off a white card stock panel and ink distressed a sky and grassy
background. I die cut the mailbox from gray card stock and ink distressed to
give it some dimension. Small envelopes were "sealed" with a tiny heart.

The mailbox post and grass were adhered on the panel, and the mailbox was
popped up with dimensional adhesive. I left the door open so the envelopes and
hearts appear to be spilling out of the mailbox. The card was finished off
with the white embossed sentiment.
Be sure to stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more
peeks at the January release, and leave a comment there for a chance to win
$75 in prizes!
