And the other:
I started by clear embossing some of the Journalling Words II onto a jumbo tag, and then inked with lots of Distress Inks to create a leathery depth of colour. I did some watery spritzing and flicking to add extra texture to the background.
I folded the bottom of the tag to create a pocket, and cut it using the Brackets On the Edge die for a fancier look.
I added some stamping using Katy Fox's Carte Postale set, and also created a couple of bits of postal ephemera using the same set, which I clipped on using an Idea-ology hinge clip.
The inside is lined with paper from one of the Tim Holtz paper stashes - forgive me, I've forgotten which now, and I'm not at home to check. I'm sure one of you will be able to identify it!
And I created two internal tags on which you could write a greeting or clip the token/money to.
The first is simply stamped with the Carte Postale stamps, inked and distressed for an aged look.
The second got the same inky treatment as the outside of the wallet, and then I stamped the fabulous rulers from the Tim Holtz Artful Tools set using Distress Paint.
A couple of Idea-ology mini-clips are there to help out with adding the money/token.
And, of course, no tag (even a gift wallet) would be complete without its topping. So there's some Distress Stain dyed seam binding to tone in with the tag colours, and tied with twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by. You've still got time to play along with our Ladies Day challenge and be in with a chance at the prize draw. Hope to see you there!
