Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Papericious new post.
After a whole Wedding month I was in this Steampunk trendy mood and decided to make a steampunk Pocket letter.
Pocket Letters are very trendy. You use this Baseball/Football cards plastic pockets and make 9 cards that are close to ATC size. Usually this is folded after it's done and you can mail it to the friend.
You also can add some small crafty supplies inside, but I didn't do it this time as this is not for shipping.
One great thing about making this project was to use the collection cover and to cut the cards, almost all of them, from the collection cover only.
Pretty much recycling thing to do.
So on the top you can see all 9 cards that all were made with the same stitched rectangle die as the background using one single sheet of Papericious Pretty Basics cardstock.
Then the top pieces were die cut with the smaller rectangle die mostly from The Vintage Attire cover and glued over the basic cards.
Each card was embellished with die cuts, chipboards, twine, sequins and yet they all should be flat as this " letter" is going to be folded after all.
I made the central card as the letter title and this is all about a Celebration!
So two cards around are with dancing people die cuts and they sure celebrate something.
Chipboard words were added over some cards and I added a lot of Papericious sequins on most of the cards using glaze.
An now the next three cards here:
Same paper collection, but a bit different in style. I added painted chipboards, gears die cuts (all die cuts are made from the same Papericious paper collection) and made die cut walls on some cards.
And here are a couple more of cards- colors are brighter and I die cut stars and added some Papericious twine over them.
I know that this kind of paper crafting is new to some of the blog readers.
But you can Google this Pocket Letter thing and to see that it's just fun to make them, to ship them and to get them.
Go for it! Step out of your comfort zone! Crafting can be different and still fun!
