I’m excited to be participating in my first collaboration featuring pocket letters! I have teamed up with a wonderful group of talented crafters to bring you 9 fun videos featuring one pocket letter insert each. We have all created one insert that will be mailed to one lucky winner! Keep reading to see how I made my insert and how to enter to win!
To get started, I used the ship lap / wood grain background technique I’ve been obsessing over lately. I scored my insert every half inch and then used Distress Oxides to apply color. I intentionally left some white space to help break up the background and also give the appearance of a highlight. I thought adding the pink was a fun way to brighten up the background.
Next, I picked out an adorable stamp set to use for the focus of my project. I picked Octopi My Heart from Lawn Fawn. So many of these Lawn Fawn sets are the perfect size for ATCs or pocket letter inserts. Not to mention – they’re adorable! I colored my octopus with Copic markers and added some white gel pen accents to help brighten her up a little bit. I put that cute little bow on her head, too!
Then, I used navy card stock to heat emboss my sentiment, ‘you octopi my heart.’ I used Alabaster Embossing Ink from Brutus Monroe for this. I trimmed down my sentiment strips and adhered them to my insert.
To finish off my insert, I added a few bright pink sequins. I love how these give just a little bit of sparkle and shine, but don’t take away from the rest of the elements.
Be sure to take a look at each of the inserts created for this hop – I’ve included the list of videos for you below so you won’t miss out!
