3D Piano Keys Birthday Card

 Good Morning! Today's post features a musical themed birthday card.
The size of the card is 3.5 x 6.25 inches which fits a #63/4 small letter size envelope.


I found some similar ideas on Pinterest and figured I would adapt this card for the size I was wanting to make. The musical notes were the negative space from the border punch.


The keys are 3D. I cut the number 2 and letter U from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge

Pocket Letter filled with Hope

Hi There Friends! I hope you are having a great week and welcome to All Things Beautiful! I hope all is going well. So today's a Hope themed Pocket Letter. I have been making Pocket letters for several months and I have met some really nice and highly creative people. This Pocket letter was made for a friend of mine. We Pen Pall and I like to exchange Christian Themed Pocket Letters so I chose to send her one filled with Hope.


I added a tea bag behind the hope quote flap in the lower left pocket.

My Pen pall told me she likes brackets, arrows, crowns and lots of bling so I couldn't resist cutting her some of her favorite cut files out of glitter and adding them to this pocket flap card.

Here is a close up of the bottom row of pockets.


and...here is a back view of the Pocket Letter filled with crafty goodies. I made some coordinating Card Candy just for her.

I hope you like my Pocket Letter and try making one for yourself and finding a swap partner on the various Pocket Letter Facebook groups and web pages.

Have a wonderful day!

Floral Pocket Letter

Hello and Happy Thursday! So glad you are joining me to check out my latest Pocket Letter. I have thoroughly enjoyed making these and swapping! I've had so much fun getting to know everyone and sharing  in everyone's crafty abilities.

Today's PL is a floral theme. When I think floral, I think yellow so I chose to make this one yellow and white. I used lots of foiled images I had on hand. It was actually a good thing. I have had a Minc foil machine for a while but don't use it as nearly as often as I should. So this project prompted me to use it.

Hope you enjoy my post!


Here I made a falp book and used a border punch for the decorative element.


This is the inside.


I added the recipients name onn a tag, a flower jewel and some ribbon tape and ribbon for the top.


I hope you enjoyed viewing my Pocket Letter. Have a great Thursday and I hope you find time to make something beautiful!

Purple Pocket Letters

Hello and welcome to All Things Beautiful! A place to share my crafty side!
Today's post is all about Pocket Letters. If you've never heard about Pocket Letters (PL), you can find more here.

Today's Pocket Letters are:  Pretty in Purple!
I had two swap partner that love purple so I created these two PL at the same time.

Some elements are the same but many are different.

I made these PL interactive, meaning I tried to incorporate as many moving pocket letter cards as I could by making and using mini greeting cards, notebooks, shaker pockets,
flap books, envelope pockets and more....


I also used my Card Candy as an embellishment on one of the Pocket Cards.


This is a flap book. I used lots of flowers and encouraging statements.

Then finally, I decorated the tops using tags with the recipients first initial, a pretty matching gem, some ribbon and a scripture tag as always.

added a Thank you card for swapping and they were done!



If you are interested in making and swapping a pocket letter you don't have to go to the lengths I di or if you want you can make it more elaborate! It is all up to you.
I hope you like my post today and find time to be creative yourself. Now it's your turn to go make something beautiful!

Nature Pocket Letter

Hello Crafty Pals! I hope your week has been productive and enjoyable! Welcome to All Things Beautiful and I hope you enjoy my post for today. Today's post is showcasing a Nature Themed Pocket Letter. Not sure what pocket letters are? You can check them out here.

For this PL (Pocket Letter), I chose various stamps, stickers, gems and embellishments to pull it all together. I also added a quote for the center pocket.


This is a flap pocket. You can lift the top and inside are various crafting goodies, cut outs, die cuts, stickers; what ever can fit inside.

I chose to add some nature themed tags.

I also included in my PL, some matching Card Candy.

Again another picture of some Card Candy embellishments that coordinate with one of the ATC cards in my PL.

I hope you enjoyed my post and check out the Pocket Letter site. I do not receive any type of endorsement for my recommendation I just have fallen in love with creating and swapping Pocket letters.
