Matt's Wallet

Hi there,
At last I have finally managed to get to post on my blog. Where has a month gone, this time last month my Hubby were busy packing the caravan to do the gray nomad thing ( without the gray hair anyway) We had a great time playing 7 different golf courses in Northern NSW. Back home and its one day to unpack before its back to work.
Then is oh no!!!! I need a teenage/young adult boy birthday card, thank god for the internet, making male card is not a favourite of mine. Lucky I found some samples on splitcoast stampers, I decided to go with the wallet card some other cards can be found here.
I looked at my husbands wallet to get the measurements and cut chocolate chip card to size.
I used the cuttlebug embossing folder to give close to cocoa the look of snakeskin, I then used a sponging block to highlight the raised areas with chocolate ink. I rounded the corners with my scissors because I couldn't find my corner punch. Just add brads and a stamped image and the card is ready for money and a hidden message.

Stamps: Hanna stamps
Paper: Stampin up: chocolate chip,close to cocoa, very vanilla
Other: brads, sponging block, ribbbon
