Sending Love: Quick & Easy Tutorial featuring a blue mailbox with orange highlights including a "sent with love" circle sentiment.

I wanted to use bright colors for this card, so I went with one of my current favorite color palettes: Boho Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and I added Early Espresso to tone down the colors just a bit. If you’d prefer a different color combination, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library, which has a variety of combinations you can choose from!


My favorite part of the Sending Love Bundle is that it makes it so easy to send beautifully crafted messages of love and joy, bringing joy to anyone’s mailbox!

A Tip from Barb

This is a super simple card that could easily be turned into a Busy Bee card by eliminating the tools. Simply replaced the embossed background on the main card by stamping the small envelope from the Stamp Set all over the front of the card using Boho Blue ink, and fussy cut out the circle sentiment using your scissors. Easy Peasy!
