As you see, I have a slightly different project to share today... It is a paper wallet! With a sweet image from Flourishes in the "window". I am entering this "card" to the "by the sea" challenge at Flourishes. After all, the Sweet Peas are blue...*lol*.
I thought this wallet would be great for moneygifts, and this is how I did it:
I made a foldercard from plain, brown cardstock. Made the oval window with a nestabilities die. Ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss it.
Then, I distressed it with Walnut Stain. At the end I clear embossed the whole thing to give it a realistic look. The straps were made with a gorgeous (I think) "Burberry" paper, eyelets and buckles.
The wallet is held together with a metall brad and a small magnet.
Oh, and the image is colored with Distress Inks.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
