Pocket Letter for Chris from The Cutting Cafe Shop

I got hit by the Pocket Letter bug when I got my first pocket letter from Miss Lizzy Hill all the way Australia. I LOVE how they fit into a standard nine page pocket protector (the ones that would hold baseball cards) and can be folded up to fit into a standard envelope!

Mine is extra special because I got to use some really nice clear stamps that were designed by my friend Regina called From Owl of Us and are sold over at THE CUTTING CAFE SHOP. If you aren't into clear stamps, you can also purchase the digital stamps from the sister site here. They are VERY good quality. I was excited to use them so wanted to use EVERY SINGLE ONE, hence the idea for a pocket letter!

I gold embossed them and then used water colors to color them in. I really liked the big leaves and stamped those on vellum. The great part about pocket letters is using up A TON of scraps on top of show casing an entire stamp set. Also you can really get blingy! I am hoping my friend Chris enjoys these! She loves making cards so if she wants to take apart the letter, these would make nice card fronts!

I borrowed this photo from Regina where you can see the From Owl of Us set and others. These are in a limited supply so I'd fly on over and grab some if you like them. The same goes for the ribbon sets she has out there and her other goodies!

Hope you love your letter, Chris! It was a HOOT to create!

Happy Tuesday and thanks for entrusting me with your new stamps, Regina!
