Gift Card Holder

Here is another of the projects from my card class on Saturday. When I was preparing all the elements for this I started to think I'd maybe been a bit ambitious as most of my ladies are beginners & the only card they had made was at one of the workshops I'd had. However, they all did really well & were all delighted with their gift card holders.

The cardstock is Soft Suede run through the Big Shot first with the Top Note Die & then with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I love the feel of the card once its been embossed with this folder. It gives it a lovely feel (oo er I can see a fetish developing lol!!) & looked like leather.

I've used some thinly cut strips of card to loo like leather strips wrapped around the outside.

The strap is secured with a piece of cardstock punched with the word window punch & held by two silver brads.

The inside of the wallet has been designed to hold a Gift Card. Some of the ladies had decided to put money or a lottery ticket in theirs & one of the younger crafters was going to put a picture of herself  inside for her Grandad.

I've punched the top piece of card with the large label punch.
