What a joy it was to make this pocket letter, not only as Guest Designer for Reneabouquets, but also for my swap partner, Suzanne, for the monthly pocket letter swap here on sb.com!
I used Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas - Auld Lang Syne and Vintage Christmas 2 - Holiday Treats papers. I decided to use 3 different patterns of the papers utilizing front and back for the ATC's. I distressed the edges of each one and then ran them through my Darice Snowflakes embossing folder and sanded the raised edges.
I heat embossed all the snowflakes and the flourishes using Stampendous Shabby White. The ivy vines and Christmas tree was embossed with Ranger Verdigris. The ornaments and their hangers were embossed with Zing Gold and Stampendous Shabby Pink.
I diecut the poinsettias on the border using scraps of the BFS papers and inked over the raised edges with TH Fired Brick distress ink pad. I added gold microbeads from Reneabouquets for the centers.
As a special touch, the mint and white lace placed over the tulle was from my mom's stash so it is rather vintage!
I also added Stardust Stickles all over to look like snow and add some bling.
I have posted close-ups for those of you who would like to get a more detailed look.
