As with other 3D Vignettes, the Valentine’s Mailbox collapses flat for an envelope.  I think it’s an intriguing reveal.  I love buying vellum envelopes so that folks get a romantic glimpse of what they are getting ready to open.

Inspiration for 3D Mini Vignette Valentine’s Mailbox

As a kid, I absolutely loved Valentine’s Day.  There was just something about counting up all the little envelopes.  It wasn’t a competition to get the most, but the fact that everyone swapped them and you walked home with a handful of little envelopes mush have shown a measure of sweet kindness.  It was that “thing” about all the little envelopes that inspired me to create a mailbox full of them.  My favorite part is that the front of the mailbox hinges opens to reveal either a sentiment or the picture of a loved one.

I’m so tickled that this die set also functions just like a 3D Vignette, except for this one is a “mini”.  You simply cut the aperture and fill it with whatever you like.  For my sample above I decided that instead of having the hearts and envelopes extending outside of the card, I wanted them contained down inside of the card.  It makes a sweet little diorama that folds flat for mailing.

Because of the “mini” size, it fits onto an A2 Card and inside of an A2 envelope.  I thought it would be great to make a shaped mini note card.  It’s a lovely size for a notecard and is a breath of fresh air for me after becoming so accustomed to large cards.

I hope you like it!  I honestly found joy in playing around with this month’s die and it was a real joy to design. Plus I can’t wait to use it after Valentine’s Day since the base is a 3D Vignette.

    Just discovered this type of card making. I feel overwhelmed trying to figure out the best, basic supplies with which to start. I’m newly retired, and I’m in love with Christmas.ReplyCancel
