Father's Day "wallet"

Edited to add: Hubby LOVED the wallet... Our daughter gave it to him and right away he said "that looks like a nice wallet." He was surprised to see it was paper and his "card" for Father's Day... and even more surprised when he saw a $20 in the slot where the gift card was in the photo. Told him that was money I saved up and not from the community fund. He thought that was even better. LOL


This "wallet" made of cardstock and some acitate to view the photo is for my husband.

It looks and feels just like a real wallet...

The measurements are 9" x 3.5"

Ran the outter layer of CS thru a Cuttlebug folder so it has the feel of 'gator skin or the like.

The inside I cut pieces of paper to hold a real photo of our daughter and on the other side, two slots -- one to hold a gift card (or money) and the other slot to hold a personal note.

I know he's going to get a kick out of this one.

Tri-fold cards...

If you google tri fold cards, you will get a bunch of links to view... I had to try this card out and I must say: I am addicted! I've done two so far.

They are fun and love how many panels and areas you get to decorate.

The scoring and cutting are easy. The hard part is figuring out what papers I want to use with what stamps and embellishments! Fun, fun!

This one will be for my husband on our anniversary this coming September. Five years married and 6 1/2 together. It seems like yesterday we met for the first time. Since his favorite color is orange and he's quite the green thumb in the garden, I know he will enjoy this... the flowers, the cool butterfly (can you see the women in the design? There are three of them.), the cute ladybug charm, as we know ladybugs are a wonderful welcomed visitor to your garden, and the stamps. I'll write a note on the back.

And this one is for my mom's birthday that is in December. These are so addicting to make! I see more creating going on soon with these...
