Hello friends! Leigh here, with a super cute snail mail featuring the SWAK wax seals and the Dear Lizzy It's All Good collection. I have created a different kind of card that I am so excited about! It is a tag pocket that can hold mail goodies and a card too! The Sealed With A Kiss wax seals are the perfect finishing touch for a nostalgic nod to retro hand-written letters.
I created the wax seals first, on a non-stick craft mat, so that I could add them as embellishments on the tag pocket cards. The SWAK sets come with different colors of wax, a handle, and two different impression stamps. I love the rose and the flower in this set.
Each of the three tag pockets were made from a 12×12 sheet of the Dear Lizzy Paper. Here, the cards are each tucked in the front pocket. I will show them out of the pocket below, so that you can see them more clearly. You could add some happy mail gifts in the pocket because the card stock patterned paper is sturdy enough to hold multiple cards.
The first tag pocket and the card outside of the pocket features the house print and floral from the Bloomed and Enjoy Today paper. I made sure to choose the prints on the back of the sheet of 12×12 that would look good upside down, since I made the pocket and tag from one piece. The house from the front of the pocket is repeated in the pattern on the card. The wax seals and some die cuts are an easy way to embellish this tag pocket.
The second tag pocket and card feature that cute truck full of flowers! What a pleasant image for a die cut! I thought the sentiment "Live Simply" was perfect for this adorable image. I added a heart die cut to the truck bed and the wax seal too.
Tag pocket three features the cute purse pattern! I loved the purse die cut, and chose the same pattern for the tag portion so that they would coordinate. A stamp die cut, and a wax seal finish off the sentiment on the front of this tag pocket. The card sentiment, "You're a Peach" was created easily with a die cut! American Crafts Navy Baker's Twine finishes off all the tags perfectly.
The purse pattern tag holds a second card and some fold out tags tied inside. The recipient can remove these and some more goodies to use on their paper crafts. They get happy mail from this cute Dear Lizzy collection. Another idea I had while making these tag pockets was to make them into a mini album or a traveling scrapbook that visits all the freinds in a swap group. I will get right on that, how about you? This Dear Lizzy collection is too good to share.
Thanks for visiting today!
