LMMS Challenge #133 (14th Mar)

Heeeellllloooo everyone

Well it's Monday and my turn to share a Little Miss Muffet (LMM) Design Team creation with you today which was made for our new challenge (#133) over on the LMM blog. I've seen lots of these pocket letters lately on Facebook and Pinterest so I thought I would give it a go. Basically the sleeves you can buy are normal used for trading card. Each pocket holds a piece of card/paper 2½" x 3½". It did take me a little time to create it but it was fun, I suppose they're a little like the old ATC's we used to make. The concept was created to send messages and little things to a pen pal as the sleeve will actually fold up if you don't stick things on the front as I've done.

My Pocket Letter is On my Pocket Letter I have used 4 digi stamps, all of which can be found in the LMM store - Tine Flower, Val Gives, Sweet Val and Trunk Full Of Love Sentiment.

I apologise for the quality of the first photograph as it was difficult to take without getting a glare onto the plastic sleeve. The rest of the photographs show the cards outside of the sleeve.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I cut down 2 complimentary 12" x 12" sheets into tiles that would fit each pouch (2½" x 3½"), then I set about decorating each one. I made sure I kept the colour palette simple and only used an aqua and pink card - however you could easily go to town on these. To embellish the tiles I used a variety of die cut and punched out elements, using glitter and gems to decorate.

I printed the elephant images and sentiment directly onto some colouring cardstock and coloured them all with Copic pens. I fussy cut everything out and added 4 of the images on the inside, and attached one of them on the outside using foam tape.

To finish off I used washi tape down the left hand side along with a few punched out elements.
