Norwegian Mail-Box

Thought I'd show you a Norwegian Mail-Box I've made today :)
The idea to the mailbox, did I get when I was making a Advent Calendar for the magazine Ett trykk 05/10 - a Norwegian mail-box system. I thought it would be fun to make a large mail-box to actually store some Christmas cards in :)

The text on top says "Christmas Cards" in Norwegian :)

Size: 7 x 16 x 22 cm
Ink: Adirondack - Espresso, Archival Ink - Jet Black & Coffee, Distress Ink - Antique Linen & Frayed Burlap.
Stamps: Penny Black - Decorate the Season (Slap Stick - image & texts).
Colouring: Letraset - Promarkers.
Papers: 3ndypapir - Felicia & Nicolas, Bazzill - Barkley & French Vanilla cardstock, Letraset - Hevywight Cartridge Paper 270g.
Tools: Martha Stewart - Paper Trimmer & Eyelet Lace punch around the page set, EK Success - border punch.
Embellishments: Wild Orchid CraftsMulberry Paper Leaf, Hellebore, Wild Rose 25 mm, Aster Daisy, Gypsophila & Rosebuds 4 mm, Kort & Godt - pearls & hinges, Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mist "Pearl" & "Fired Brick", American Crafts - Thickers (foam), Unik Hobby - ribbon & Antique Gold Bells - charms, Tim Holtz - Long Fasteners (to fasten the top with).

Have a great 3rd Sunday in Advent!
