Now, let me side-track you for a minute or three to share my Merry Christmas Wallet! This wallet features pockets on the inside with a pull-out Christmas card, and holds either cash or a gift card. It’s made from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and beautiful Flamingo cardstock! I LOVE a Christmas project in non-traditional colors!
I fashioned the wallet base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and layering panels from Flamingo cardstock, and rounded the bottom corners. I die cut the sentiment from Solar White and Flamingo cardstock which I layered for dimension, and then die cut the Poinsettia from Flamingo cardstock and some patterned paper in my stash. The finishing touch was adding some tiny iridescent gemstones.
I cut the inside panels for the pockets from two coordinating prints and added embellishing strips cut from Flamingo cardstock. I created a pull-out Christmas card embellished with a matching patterned paper and stamped a sentiment to tuck into the top pocket.
