Here’s a close up of the cupcake. I wanted to explain how I did the cupcake top, etc. I cut those pieces out in plain white cardstock. I used my Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad and my Chocolate Ink Pad and a sponge to lightly tap the color onto each of the three layers. I then edged them with the Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad for a little definition. Then I used my Chalk Marker and made the doodle-shine marks and then went over them and the heart with my Stardust Glitter Gel. Lastly I used my Gypsy Ink Pad to edge the bottom and my Versamarker pen to create the lines.

I used the Whisper Ink Pad and a sponge to lightly ink around the edges of the mouse pieces and used my Cotton Candy Ink Pad to edge and sponge in the nose and inner ear pieces. I used my Cranberry Ink Pad to sponge in the ribbon pieces.

View of my mailbox

I used the following to complete

Red and Black Cardstock
White Signo Pen
DCWV Stack 8 Patterned Paper – SEE ABOVE FOR SALE LINK
Vintage Graphics

The body of the mailbox cuts in one piece on a 12x12 piece.

Design Note: I would cut and decorate my decorative panels before you assemble the box. This way you can adhere them down and use a flat surface to really press on them and get good adhesion. I cut the outer decorative panel in black and then the inner one in the patterned paper. I then printed out my graphics and cut them and adhered them as the third layer. I used my signo pen to create the faux stitching around the black panels.
