Thankful Thursday! Happy Father's Day Gift Card Holder

Wallet Gift Holder
Hi Everybody!  Happy Thankful Thursday!

Welcome to Thankful Thursday!  The challenge this week was to create something for Father's Day!  I don't if your Father is hard to purchase gifts for as mine, but gift giving for my Dad always seems hard!  I know my Dad is the most appreciative person I know and ends up loving anything I get him!  Thanks Pops!

This year I am purchasing a gift card for him, but wanted to make a wonderful presentation for it.  I created this cool men's wallet to house my Dad's gift card.

It was really easy to make and I think it turned out stunning.  The love all the brown ink that gave the wallet its aged look.  I used brown card stock cut 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 folded in the middle.  I used a texture stamp with a dark brown for the wallet texture and used a "Happy Father's Day" stamp that I used with clear embossing powder.  I pierced all along the sides of the outside of the wallet and added black ink to give the impression of sewing.  Lastly, I added some pockets inside the card to house the gift card!
