I thought I better start making the Father's day cards - so it isn't a rush job a week on Saturday LOL! I was blog hopping the other day when I saw this fab wallet card that Nicky had made - her blog link is on the right (the Altered Inker) - such a fab idea Nic!- I fell in love with it so I hope she doesn't mind but I just had to have a go at making a couple of my own (one for my dad and one for hubby - yes I know the kids should get the cards, and they will as well, but I thought he would like one of these too LOL). Nic handstitched hers and it gives a lovely chunky effect but 'throw my hands up in horror', I don't do handstitching! I got the sewing machine out instead LOL!
I also made boxes for them and inside the wallet there is an opening for money or vouchers, an acetate window for a photo and some pockets for 'credit cards' (I made some little credit card sized sentiment cards to fit in these).
Anyway here are the results. By the way the one with the bird and clock is for my dad (I hope I don't get them mixed up - not sure what he would make of the nude image - he's 83!)
