St. Patrick’s Day Pocket Letter
I was asked to participate in an event in which crafters exchange pocket letters. I purchased a package of pockets which 9″ by 9″ page protectors. I pulled out my stash of St. Patrick’s Day papers, shamrock punch, stamps, embellishments, stickers, and doilies. This is what I came up with. Some suggested products are listed below. I used a lot more items than I listed. The fun part was creating the layout before inserting the items into the pockets. I cut out the horse shoe using my Cricut. I also added an extra treat with a topper I stamped. I used several 3D stickers by Recollections. I had extra items which wouldn’t fit so I added them to the back of the pocket letter. My swap partner sent me a really fun pocket letter which had lace around it an was loaded with washi tape and embellishments. Pocket letters are a great way to learn new crafting techniques and it’s always fun to diversify your craft supply stash.
St. Patrick’s Day Cards created with the Cricut
I created the leprechaun turtle card using the Cricut. The image is from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I used foam adhesives to give the shell extra dimension. The card base is light yellow. The background layer is light green card stock which was run through an embossing folder and then sanded to show the inner core. I embellished the card with a sticker.
