Hi everyone and thanks for popping by!
Here in Australia, our Father's Day celebration
is coming up on 6th September and is traditionally held on the first
Sunday of September. The project I'm showing today was included in my Father's Day/Masculine Card workshop held last weekend and everyone loved it!
I'd seen these Gift Card Wallets on Pinterest and came across one by Jay and Barry at Mitosu Crafts which was the inspiration for my project.
The frame on the left side and the pocket on the right were made using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The pocket on the right is large enough to hold a gift card if you sparingly dot glue along the edges using the stitched lines as a guide. In my photo you can see I have stamped a greeting on card stock and slid this in rather or alternatively, you could use a photo. There is also room for a small note in the pocket created at the back if you wanted to create a special message to go with your gift.
For my masculine wallet, I've used Soft Suede card stock and the greeting was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Sahara Sand.
For the ladies version, I stamped over the outside cover using the floral image from Last A Lifetime stamp set in Soft Suede ink. The greeting for this wallet was stamped on Pool Party card stock in Soft Suede ink.
To finish off the wallets, I added the gold letters and heart on the front using the Playful Alphabet dies. If you know the initials of the person you are giving it to, you could use them instead. There are a few die sets with hearts: Birds & More, Stitched Be Mine, Trio of Tags, Wreath Builder or use whatever you have in your stash. I've used the heart from Birds & More.
This can easily fit inside an envelope.
Other products used were small magnets to hold the wallet closed.
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to have a look. If you have any questions or if you like what you see, please leave a comment below and I will happily get back to you.
Have a great day!
