Christmas Pocket Letter

Hi my dear crafty friends!

It's me, Susanne, today and I'd like to share a Christmas Pocket Letter. I have so much fun doing Pocket Letters altough I don't treat with them. I save them and send them to friends from time to time. Most of my Pocket Page layouts start with one full picture that I cut into nine pieces. For this one I used Distress Inks "Tumbled Glass" and "Pumice Stone" to create a watercolor background. Before I cut the cards I stamped a tree landscape on the bottom. I used the "XMas Silhouette Collage", the "Fir Trees Silhouette" and the "Redwood Trees".

I embellished every single card with different stamps. Sometimes I stamped them directly onto the card, sometimes I cut them out or embossed them. You'll find all stamps I've used at the end of this post.

I added some "snow" to every edge of the cards for a little bit more interest. I used texture paste together with Distress Glitter "Clear Rock Candy".
