that i would make a card fitting for such a gift...
ah voila the wallet card was born...
It opens and closes just like a proper wallet with a fully working popper you would use on clothes, just popped on with the use of my trusty Crop-a-dile.
It also has a proper wallet holder so when open you really can put the money in it like a real wallet. And i hand stitched it together for a more realistic feel
I am so happy with the way this turned out, just hope my Dad does aswell.
The card i made for Tony's Dad, as you can see, is rather a clocky theme, he has a clock in every room of there house almost, and we have just got another one for him lol, so i thought it only fitting a clock card to match the gift, plus it gave me a chance to have another play with the great time/clock stamps i got at my Stamp Connection/artistic stamper workshop @ Ally Pally last month.
The background was stamped and masked and then stamped again and so on till i pretty much had the page covered and was happy with the result. I then stamped and coloured the grandfather clock, and once dry i added crackle glaze and some gold to highlight almost like a guilding effect, just so it looked aged.
I made the card a little different in the folding to really focus on the clock one side and the wording the other, which was printed out on acetate, edged with Krylon copper and attached with brads.
Lets just hope the dads like my offerings
