A wallet of smiles...

Happy Thursday,

Todays card is a money or gift voucher wallet, made in simple cream and pale blue and using up mainly scraps of card and pre cut die cuts.

I started by folding a piece of A4 cardstock (PMD Cream Hammered) into three the die cutting the scalloped edge using Spellbinders Scalloped Borders one.  I laid a scrap of pale blue card behind to show through the filigree sections.

Next I embossed the whole piece using a Darice tumbling leaves folder then simply added the topper in the middle on a sheet of cream card edged in blue.

I embossed a scrap of pale blue cardstock the same way and added this inside before sticking down the flap (2 cm fold)

Hopefully you can get the idea of this from the pictures!
