MFT Stamps | January Vault Release Countdown – Two Days and Counting!

January 17, 2021

Hello friends! For day 2 of the MFT January Vault Release Countdown, I have a fun interactive slimline card to share with you! I used both the Mail Delivery and Mini Mail Die-namics to create a fun card that looks like a front door with a mail slot.

To start, I first cut a piece of red cardstock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ and then used the Slimline Starter Die-namics to cut a long stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I then used the mail delivery die-namics along with gold metallic cardstock to add my interactive mail slot. I added some door panels using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 2. I also created a half circle faux window at the top by die cutting a stitched circle and then cutting it in half. I added all of my door panels and window section to my card front using some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

I added a door knob and lock section using a regular hole punch and the gold metallic paper as well as the small u-shaped die-namic that comes with the Mail Delivery Set. Next, I created my envelope using the Summertime Polka Dots Patterned Paper Pad.

I stamped a fun little message from the Sending Smooches Stamp Set on the little note insert that fits inside the envelope.

The note tucks perfectly into the envelope.

The envelope, in turn, fits perfectly into the mail slot. It’s such a fun card to give to your recipient! Lastly, I added a fun little Valentine door wreath/decoration using the Fab Foliage Die-namiccs and a diecut aq heart using the Hot Cocoa Cups Die-namics. (Any heart would work, but I had this die set on hand and the size of the heart was perfect!)

    I always enjoy interactive cards and I like how you created yours. The door looks good and your mail slot and envelope are perfect. Adding a small decorative door element makes a good visual and finishing the door with lock and knob gives a good feel to the entire design.

    What an inviting card and creative use of stitched pieces to make the door.

    Your door looks so realistic and I love that papers are offered with tiny prints for these darling envelopes

      Thanks so much, Kristen! I love MFT’s patterned paper pads! They work perfectly with this set. 🙂

    Oh I love anything MAIL… I think I told you my kids and their spouses all work for USPS in lots of capacities. Any time I can incorporate the MAIL theme I sure do. Adding this to my list for sure. Nicely done…

    LOVE using a slimline for this door, it works so much better than an A2! Thanks for the idea, you always do such fun, fantastic, clever and beautiful designs! 🙂

    This is so fun and so clever. The slimline design is perfect for being a door! Love the details and how you added the note to the mail slot. Excellent work, Rachel! 🙂
