Royal Post

Another page in my mini memory keeper album inspired by a challenge on Color Stories Inspiration.

This layout records an event from 2006. I sent Queen Elizabeth II a handmade card for her 80th birthday & I was delighted when I received a thank you letter from Buckingham Palace, signed by her lady-in-waiting.

For this layout I used the Case File no. 26, details of which are shown below.

I only used elements provided, but tweaked them to include more relevant evidence of the event in question.

Postal stamps from the envelope & the coat of arms from the letterhead & below a copy of the letter.

I duplicated the layout background so that I could create a pocket on the bottom half of the page.

I made an envelope, which is secured in place by the crown seal.

It lifts out easily, so you can look inside.

Inside the envelope, is a miniature version of the card I sent.

Including the actual greeting printed inside.

This page sits perfectly beside my previous layout about The Royal Academy.
