How to Make a Christmas Postbox Card
This dinky little notelet is ideal for sending festive greetings to your loved ones both near and far. The Christmas postbox design would also be ideal for creating matching handmade gift tags, simply stamp the greeting directly underneath the postbox and the jobs a good ‘un!
- Begin by trimming a white card blank to measure 9.5 x 13.2 cm.
2. Carefully stamp the air-mail border design onto the top and bottom of the card front. Overlap the design so that the square end pattern is at either end.
3. Die cut two stamp shapes into spare white card. Stamp the ‘Sending Warm Wishes’ sentiment in red ink on the bottom left-hand corner of one of the die-cuts. Position and fix these onto the card front using 3D foam pads. Double the pads up on the top stamp where needed.
4. Die cut the mail box from silver metallic card. Die cut the mail box post from dark green coloured cardstock. From red coloured card, die cut the tiny flag. Glue these elements together using tacky glue. This can then be fixed onto the top stamp using 3D foam pads.
5. Lastly, stamp the parcel image onto spare white card, and die cut out. Position and fix the parcel into place using more 3D foam pads. Doubling them up where needed.
6. Decorate an envelope using the air-mail border stamp again, but this time use it all the way round the edge of the envelope.
Top tip – At the end of each side, use a scrap piece of paper to mask the stamp so it ends nicely at the corners.
7. Compete the envelope design by stamping the green foliage design.
Top tip – Stamp first onto scrap paper the two foliage sprigs end to end. Use this as a positioning guide for stamping the design onto the envelope.
