Pocket Letter: Pink Shabby Chic

I haven't been making as many pocket letters lately, but there is a lady on the Pocket Letter Pals network who organises birthday pocket letters for everyone. I thought she deserved a little surprise, so I made this for her.

I hope she likes it! 

I used pink glitter paper from the Spring in Bloom paper pad and taupe striped paper over which I heat embossed some gold script with a Kaisercraft stamp. The edges of each card were inked in Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo. 

I used some Tilda dimensional stickers in pockets 2, 3, 4 and 9.


Pockets 1 and 8 have a die cut heart.


Pocket 5 has a beautiful quote stamped in Vintage Photo. The Scatter Seeds stamp is from Inkilicious. The edges of the card are heat embossed in gold tinsel. 

Pocket 6 has delicate lace and pearls to enhance this Julianna stamp, again from Inkilicious

Pocket 7 has a die cut Bird on a Branch by Marianne Design and flowers made from ivory satin trimming and hand punched pink glitter card with pearls at the centres. 

Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers were used in some pockets to add words. Tickets and gold stickers finished off the cards.

Here is the back of the pocket letter where the goodies are:

Pocket 1: a little bit of info about me
Pocket 2: red organza, white bow trim and ivory flower trim
Pocket 3: cork, linen and burlap bird and mason jar embellishments
Pocket 4: crystal gems and dimensional butterfly embellishments
Pocket 5: Shocking pink organza, pearl heart flat backs and flower embellishments
Pocket 6: gel sticky dots, grey pearls and cream pearls
Pocket 7: Rose tea
Pocket 8: pink organza and bee embellishments
Pocket 9: coral crystal gems and tiny square metal-look gems in gold

As Cathy is so special, I added extra goodies and made her a note card, which you can see here, into which I tucked my letter. She's from the USA, so I though she'd like a packet of ten pound note tissues!
