Here is my inspiration for you this month.

As I could not find readymade pocket letters as you have seen in the videos above, I decided to make my own.
To make my pocket letter, I started with a 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper from Papericious.
I then measured and cut nine pieces of vellum to fit on this sheet.

I then held them in place with a strip of post it tape and sewed them in place with my sewing machine.

I then used Simon Says Stamp's Stitched rectangles die to die cut the inserts for the pockets.

I then went ahead and decorated each insert with images and sentiments for Mother's day!

This is my first pocket letter and I loved making it!
Here are some more close up images of each insert.

For this card, I used a stampendous cling stamp and watrcoloured with Sakura Koi water colours.
