Hi everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at the Jaded Blossom blog and this month's theme is to make a "Masculine" project. Here is what I made:
I made a wallet card/giftcard holder! My son just turned 17 (where does the time go???) and I wanted to make him a fun card! I measured out a 10 x 7.75 inch piece of card stock to play around with and came up with this project. It measures 5" x 4.25" when folded. I used the JB Border Dies to do the stitching along the outside of both the front and the back. I used some shiny card stock to cut out #1 Son using the Alphabet Dies 2 to mimic a "brand" impression.
Using the Rectangle Dies 1 & Rectangle Dies 2 I cut out the pocket window so I could slip in the laminated driver's license that I created. I covered the opening using acetate. I also used a circle punch for the center of the billfold.
For the gift card pockets I used the Stitched Square Dies and partial diecutting technique to layer them in descending size. I stamped and embossed the Happy Birthday using the So Many Birthdays 4 stamps. We custom ordered my son a laptop that we wouldn't receive in time for him to open so we included in the billfold a receipt listing all the specs and features. I also created a pull out to write our message using a sentiment from the Party Pants stamps and stars from the Star Dies and Banner Dies.
Here is a closer look at the pockets.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to join us for this new monthly challenge! Hope you have a great day :)
