Stampin' Up! Colourful Seasons Masculine Gift card wallet

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

The lovely Dee Copus-Read of  LadyDeeCrafts designed our sketch this month. She also requested that it should be a masculine gift card wallet. What a great challenge Dee, thanks very much. Here's the sketch we had to work from:

Masculine cards are always so difficult to make and given a choice I would always opt to make a feminine card. I knew I wanted to use Blues for my card and ended up going with Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Marina Mist with some Very Vanilla for the sentiment and on the inside.

I decided to use the 'skeleton' leaf stamp from The Colourful Seasons Stamp Set and stamped all over the Pacific Point layer with Night of Navy ink and in the centre of the card using Pacific Point ink. I then used the same stamp on the Marina Mist card using Pacific Point ink.

The sentiment comes from the Guy Greetings Stamp Set and I stamped that in Night of Navy. It looked a little bare so I stamped the leaf stamp in Marina Mist Ink, stamped off once.

I cut my Night of Navy cardstock to 6" x 10" and scored on the long side at 4" and 8". The extra 2" formed my pocket. Here's what the card looks like inside.

I stamped the leaves again on the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Happy Birthday Sentiment leaving plenty of space to write a message.

To finish off I used a piece of Marina Mist which was stamped with the Leaf Stamp. I used Tear and Tape to adhere the sides of the flap to the card.

It is also deep enough to put some money in it as well.
