July pocket letter swap with red white and blue patriotic theme. I used the We R Memory Keepers paper line and accessories titled Red White and Blue. My favorite is the red white and blue M&M’s I found for the middle square. HaHa.
These are a few of the extra packages of goodies I made for her also. They include ribbon, die cuts, treat bag kit, and some star stick pins.
This first card I made using some of the images in the Beautiful flowers stamp set by #SSS. I colored them in with my Zig clean color real brush markers. I trimmed that piece down and mounted it on top of a piece of the patterned paper from ModaScrap that came in the kit. I layered the Happy Birthday sentiment also from Simon that I cut three times and then stacked and glued together, I applied some novo shimmer on top for some sparkle. I mounted those words onto two coordinating pieces of ribbon( I made a mistake in stamping and had to fix it somehow so that was my solution, I think it worked pretty well). I stamped wishing you with tuxedo black ink from Momento above the Happy Birthday words and then finished off the card with three colors of Nuvo crystal drops apple green, violet galaxy, and sweet lilac. I mounted the entire piece on top of a top folding a2 size card 4.25 by 5.5.
The second card I used the Sizzix embossing folder and a piece of the gold foil paper both from the kit. The dimension on the embossing is amazing. I stamped and embossed the sentiments onto strips of paper and them mounted them with foam tape. I tied a piece of black and white bakers twine around the bottom portion of the card and then topped it with an epoxy heart from a previous Simon kit. I added this panel onto a top folding white card base a2 sized 4.25 by 5.5. I think it will be a pretty wedding card.
I made this baby themed pocket letter for my June swap. I keep trying to come up with different themes I haven’t done before. Since I made my swap partner a baby mini album I decided to do the pocket letter in the same theme. I used We R Memory Keepers paper stack.
This is a pic of the mini album I made for her new grand child. I hade made a similar one for my Grand Baby so figured it would be just as easy to make two while I was at it.
I love the way they both turned out.
