Today will be my first blog hop! I will be teaming up with the lovely Anna Brim of Mrs Brimbles and the rest of the design team!
We were talking about sending each other one of those pocket letters with an Easter theme. However, I have never really been a fan (gasp! I know, I know). Therefore I never did purchase the plastic pocket sleeves. Time was also a factor. Pocket letters are hugely popular and I knew I wouldn’t have the time to commit to them. So I found alternatives and got creative with happy mail.
For this letter I took my inspiration from several sources via YouTube and Instagram. It also required a 12×12 piece of patterned paper which I wanted to use from this months Brimbles box. Here is a list of the materials I used:
2 x 12×12 paper from the March Stationery Brimbles Box.
Washi from Mrs Brimbles March Stationery box.
Mrs Brimbles Spring Bunny Stickers.
Bella Blvd Sweet Sweet Spring daily details paper.
Bella Blvd Sweet Sweet Spring Treasures and Text.
Below I have included the process video I recorded as I made this card.
First, using an envelope template, I cut out from one of the 12×12 pieces of patterned paper an envelope and glued down the sides. I then placed and glued this down onto another 12×12 piece of patterned paper, cutting out the corners so that it would all fold up neatly.
I then proceeded to decorate these flaps. They would only been seen once fully opened.
For one flap I glued down a transparent envelope and placed inside some washi tape samples. I then stuck down one of the stickers cleverly designed and painted by the talented Anna Brim herself. They exude cuteness!
For the other flaps I used a journaling cards, stickers and washi tape;
Next, I placed a letter (not shown), postcard, and journal card inside the envelope for my swap partner Daisy;
Finally, I decorated the front with a journal card and plenty of stickers!
