Father's Day projects

Today I have two projects to share with you. One is for PaperTemptress and is a wallet card. This was inspired by one Nichole made last year. I love the leather looking cardstock PaperTemptress carries and remembered the wallet Nichole had done and knew I wanted to make one. For mine I just cut the cardstock ~Gray Leather (sponged with Storage Units, Ink & More's Cream of Wheat ink) and Hot Fudge 4.5" x 11" and sewed them together (AFTER I had sewn around the edges of a small piece for the inside). The sticker on the front is Basic Grey's embossed sitckers by K & Co. I am going to insert a gift card for my dad on the inside. "Happy Father's Day" is by Art Gone Wild.


My second project is using Lizzie Anne Designs digi paper from Garden Inspirations (I just cut the brown part of the striped paper to keep it monochromatic) and the solid brown is also from the Garden Inspiration digi set. I don't have the best printer and when it prints solids it makes it stripe looking. But it looked kinda cool like a faint tone on tone stripe.
The stamps I used are Happy Father's Day single and stars from In the Background. I used Nestibilities Label Two dies. Brads finished it off.


  1. Very cool! I love that wallet!

  2. I love that little wallet and card. I sure do miss my Dad....:(
