Gecko Galz: Alice's Tea Party - Pocket Letter


 It's the start of a brand new month and time to post my  DT inspiration for the monthly customer challenge at Gecko Galz.

This month our customer challenge theme is Alice's Tea Party.

 I made a Pocket Letter:

Pocket Letters are basically 9 ATCs in a baseball trading card folder. The front features the art work and the back holds small craft gifts that the recipient can use in future projects. 
(I haven't completed the back yet, but if you come back on the 26th of the month, it will be ready!)
How to make the pocket letter:

1.  Cut 9 ATC cards, measuring 6.5 cm by 9 cm each, from heavy card stock. 

2.  Use a glue stick to adhere the paper background to the card. 
I used 'Tweedledee' and 'Tweedledum' papers from the Wonderland Paper Pack. To add some interest and dimension, I fussy cut some of the diamonds into strips and used them as complimentary edging to the cards. Ink the card edges.
3.  Fussy cut some elements from the digital collage sets; ink the edges and, if you so wish, pop onto the cards on foam pads.
I used the Ask Alice collage set.
4.  Pop the cards into the folder. Ad wash tape to the spine and add ribbon/embellishments to finish it off.

Here are some close-ups of each section:
