It’s not new, but pocket letters are sure making their way around scrappers’ desks lately. I thought I would join the craze. They make for great swaps, and even “happy mail”! Who wouldn’t want one of these as a RAK? I know I would!
I wanted to focus on Lindy’s embossing powders with this project. With so many colors, I wanted to make my pocket letters shine! The papers I used, the Romance Novel Collection, and embellishments are all from Prima Marketing.
This is the front of the pocket letter, where I colored some of my embellishments with sprays.
On the front of my pocket letter I used some of my favorite Lindys spray colors. The leaves were die cut and sprayed with Lucky Shamrock Green Starburst Spray and then a bit of Ocean Breeze Blue was stroked on with a paint brush to highlight the blue in the spray. On the black butterfly, I sprayed on some Royal Peacock Fire Glitz Spray.
The seam binding was sprayed with Bells of Ireland Green Starburst spray. I didn’t want to soak it so that I would get a variegated look. I tied 2 pieces into each hole on the pocket page.
This is the back of the pocket letter and it’s where I used all of the embossing powders. On the wooden embellishments, I dabbed on a bit of white acrylic paint. Once dry, I heat embossed the colors onto the pieces. I picked the colors out from the papers to coordinate.
Here are a couple of closeups of the embossed pieces. If you look closely you can see some red flecks in each of the pieces. I did that just to add a little drama. I added some Razzleberry Plum embossing powder to each of the other colors. The pink butterfly is Geranium Coral Blush and the frame is Reindeer Moss Green.
The scissors and the frame were embossed with Scotch Broom Yellow. All of the black pieces were embossed with Obviously Black. The corners of each of the pocket letter cards were stamped with a Prima corner stamp, and heat embossed with Obviously Black, Reindeer Moss Green and Razzleberry Plum.
