Texting Teen - part two

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!
All the layers were popped onto a card base I made with appropriate semi-circular cuts to house the money (thanks to my Cameo again). Not sure how well they show up for you in the photo thanks to the lack of good daylight these wintery days, so you may need to squint at it a little. LOL.

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.
