Father's Day Gift Wallet

This is a project that I saw on Tracey's Blog here.  I've adapted it slightly but the principle is the same.  A wallet to hold a gift card on one side and a photo or message on the other.  This could be an alternative to a card as with a white gel pen you write a message below the opening for the gift card.  Here's the inside - 

To make this I cut a rectangular piece of Chocolate Chip.  I corner rounded the corners.  I went round the edges with my white gel pen to make some faux stitching.  Then I embossed it with the square lattice embossing folder.  I added a strip of crumb cake punched out with the word window punch with a brad before attaching it half way down the side of the wallet.  The inside was decorated with Daffodil Delight designer paper from the brights stack.  The bottom half was covered with some more Chocolate Chip card.  Both were corner rounded.  I added some faux stitching again using the white gel pen.  The side for the pocket was only stuck down on 3 sides leaving the top for the gift card to slide in.  The opposite had a window made with Chocolate Chip card and some acetate.   I decorated the front with the Father's Day stamp from Occasional Greetings and mounted it onto some Chocolate Chip card. 

Of course this could be adapted for lots of occasions and makes giving a gift card that little bit more special.  

Thanks for looking.  x
