When Betz contacted me and asked if I would like to do a pocket letter swap I said yes. It was so fun to make this for her!
Here is a video showing How to make a Gypsy Soul Pocket letter.
For my images, I used the journal kit from Calico Collage Gypsy Soul. These images are sized to make a 5 x 7 journal. But I selected the option to print four of the journal pages on one sheet of paper at a time. Doing this created little images that fit an ATC size card – 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall.
Once all of the images were trimmed along with cards to attach I proceeded to use Distress Inks to add color to the edges.
I love adding sewing touches to projects and decided to use a zig zag stitch over some gold ribbon.
Other things I added, some large rhinestones some paper flowers by Prima and Of course Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. The shimmer on the images just makes me smile.
I also used some washi tape to add a little interest. The 7Gypsies truck is from 7Gypsies as I’m on the design team and I got one of these back in January when the new Architextures were released. These 3D stickers are awesome!
A small tag charm was made using metal tape, alcohol inks and some bits of images and paper. I love the gypsy soul feel of it.
Adding bits of washi tape, fancy trim and other items to this pocket letter was so much fun. I knew that Betz would be able to take this apart and use all the elements in other projects or she could keep the cards in the pocket letter.
To see the Pocket Letter that Betz Created check out her YouTube Video. I love everything she made and added to the pocket letter. She knew that I could use the items for other projects! Love the Elephant she sent! It is super cute. Leave some love on her video to let her know what you think about what she created.
I really enjoyed making a pocket letter for Betz. I hope you enjoyed seeing my post today on How to make a Gypsy Soul Pocket letter.
