Matching the card I made in the last post is this money wallet - all ready for a crisp note to be added for my nephew's birthday present.
Again using an image called 'Connected' from Phindy's Place, I coloured this slightly larger & cropped version with my Promarkers at the same time as I coloured the image for the card to ensure that all the colours matched beautifully. As before, I made the frame & multiplicity of other cut-files using my Cameo.
Whilst I then didn't follow the same sketch but 'did my own thing', I did of course use the same set of papers (a combo of Karen Diamond, Queen Bee & LdyMcbeth) & colours so the two items coordinated to make a 2-part set. The t-shirt was similarly paper-pieced & as I was very careful about sizing, I managed to get pattern to scale up perfectly - again, probably says more about me being pernickety rather than a necessity. I don't suppose that my nephew would bother whether it matches or not, let alone anyone else. LOL. As both the card & wallet were constructed at the same time, I had luckily managed to heat emboss a couple of the arrow embellishments before the heat gun found itself consigned to the bin. So annoying when something refuses to work all of a sudden! So on the whole the embossed elements are not as many as they might have been - but these things are sent to try us.
|Wallet opened out. Semi-circular cuts to keep the money safe from slipping out - hopefully!|
That's it for today then. Another project bites the dust. Which to start next...? So much to do & no time to do it in! LOL.
Thanks for popping by and thanks too for commenting as I appreciate how long it can take at times.
