Hello and welcome to Lori Whitlock's February blog hop! You should be arriving here from Corri's blog or if you're just joining us you can start from the beginning at Lori's blog. :)
As I was looking through all of Lori's beautiful shapes trying to decide what to make, her adorable Fence Mailbox Pop-up Card jumped out at me (no pun intended). I thought it would be so much fun to create it with a Valentine's Day twist!
Since the front of the card doesn't come with a design, I decided to combine several of Lori's cutting files to decorate it. I borrowed the scalloped frame from her Scalloped Easel Card and used one of my original favorites of hers from the Silhouette store that I had never found the time to play with.
To reinforce my Valentine's Day theme, I cut the mailbox from red and added a little matching red bird to the tree (removing his legs). I somewhat awkwardly cut a slit in my mailbox to slip in a little love letter cut from a piece of Doodlebug Lovebugs Paper.
I finished off my card with a sentiment from one of my new favorite stamp sets by Simon Says Stamp called Sending Happy Thoughts. I cut an extra heart from the heart flowers set and added a touch of Glossy Accents to create my own epoxy dot of sorts. :)
I thought I would also share a digital layout I created for Lori awhile back which I never got around to sharing here on my blog. This is yet another layout I created for my annual 8x8 Shutterfly album using their Custom Path Feature. It was inspired by a sketch by two of my favorite Sketch designers, Allison Davis & Debbie Sanders at Scrapbook Generations.
I love this digital collection by Lori! With this one collection you could almost create a whole year's worth of pages. It's especially perfect for those of you who love to make personalized calendars with a cohesive look since it covers almost all the seasons and holidays.
To create my card I used the following cut files available in Lori's shop:
