Paper Wallet

Here is my first wallet card,

it was made to order for a customer,

and it suited because money was to be given away as the gift.

The lovley fresh blue papers are by Maja Design,

I have used stamps from Kort og Godt,

Waltzing Mouse and stempelglede.

Its not that easy to see in the photos but I have embossed

the text stamp on the front and the small swirls inside

with bronze embossing powder.

The flowers are from Storyteller,

brad from Panduro and ribbon from Bikubben

I have gone over all edges with Tim Holtz Distress 'Old Paper'.

The metal star shape(?) is from Kort og Godt.
The tab at the top tucked in with the money

is attached to the card for wiriting the message,

The text stamp has a lovley message,

roughly translated from norwegian it says;

'Go confidently in the direction of your dreams,

Live the life that you have imagined'

A great message for everyone,

especially a 14 year old who has just been confirmed.

It is possible to put something in this pocket, but its a bit tight :OD

I have sewn around some panels with my sewing machine, and have used a magnet hidden in the flip and under the paper to hold it all together.

The customer was very happy with the result,

I myself am a bit dissapointed by the
bad job I did with the sewing machine!!

I am entering this project for the following challenges:

Crafty card makers- Embossing,

A spoonfull of sugar- Anything goes,

Kort o Mania- a project without a picture motiv,

(Distressing, Flowers and embossing)

Its a rainy inside day here,

the Formula One racing is on the tv,

the males in the house are all glued to the screen

including my 2 yr old!

(that is because he is running a fever and is quite reduced,

otherwize it would have been another story! Lol)

So I made the most of it and got this post out :O))

Onto dinner prep. now.

I hope to do some blog surfing this evening :O)

Hugs Nina xx
