Stamp A Wallet Card To Create Something Special For A Fathers Day Gift

It was so much fun presenting this "Stamp A Wallet" project for a recent workshop, that I thought I would share it with you.

I love how the wallet looks well -used: a result of not so careful sponging around the edges.

I had been asked to come up with something for a Fathers Day Card, and while surfing the web, found this great pattern by Valita from Valita's Designs and Fresh Folds.

Even DH was impressed with my "stamp a wallet" project, and queried whether I had actually made it!

Some of the techniques I used include faux stitching, sponging and of course STAMPING.

Inside the wallet I've used some Double-sided Designer Series Paper from the Round Up Pack to mimic a material lining inside the leather outer. The ever useful and wonderful Sanded Background stamp helped me to achieve the leather look.

The other stamps I used are from the Boho Backgrounds and Occasional Greetings sets from Stampin' Up!®. You can find these stamp set in the Stampin' Up!® Ideas book and Catalogue, and for quick reference go straight to the index on page 152.

If you don't have a catalogue you can look at the on line catalogue or contact me to have a hard copy sent to you. The catalogue costs just $12.95 plus P and H and is 160 pages full of ideas, products and tips. Great value when you compare this to your normal commercial catalogue full of ads.

Other products used for this project include-

Crafters Tool Kit

Stampin' write Markers -Close To Cocoa

Card Stock - Creamy Caramel

Classic Ink -Creamy Caramel, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

2mm Handheld Punch

4.7mm Corner Rounder Punch

3.2cm Circle Punch

Snail Adhesive

Sticky Strip

I also used some self adhesive velcro dots to hold the clasp in place

Now I am planning on making a few more of these wallets - maybe some girlie ones. (I have 3 daughters)

I think they are terrific if you have a gift voucher, lottery ticket or something similar to give, and just add a really personal touch to the gift. A little tag inside conveys the greeting, and later the wallet can be displayed open on a desktop with photos or tags in the pockets.
