Sale-a-bration Wallets

  Here are some cute little gift card / secret message wallets I've made using Sale-a-bration stamp sets. These are the sets you can receive for free during Feb/March just for making a $100 Stampin'Up! order.  The top photo shows the wallet closed with the belly band around it and the photo below shows the wallet open.

You could decorate these wallets in so many different ways. For mine I have used the Big Shot and embossing folders to emboss the lower third of the wallet and then stamped images on the front and back of the other two thirds using the Sale-a-bration sets Bliss and Sweet Summer.

The inside envelope is cut out using the Big Shot and Scallop Envelope die. The belly band has been decrated using Designer Series Paper Island Oasis from the current Summer Mini catalogue. The stamped and punched images on the band are from the Sale-a-bration set Punch Bunch. The Sale-a-bration set So Happy for You has been stamped on the scallop envelope and message card.

 The Big Shot embossing folders used are - Vintage Wallpaper, Petals-A-Plenty and Elegant Lines.

The size of the card used is 29.8  x 10.5cm,  in other words an A$ sheet cut in half lengthways, scored at 9.5cm and 21cm.
Card stock is Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron Old Olive and Rose Red which all co-ordinate with the Island Oasis papers.

Thanks to my downline Maureen Crameri for giving me the inspiration for these. She made a lovely Christmas version as her Christmas card last year.

I hope you have fun coming up with your own versions. These also make a cute little money gift card. Just pop your money and message into the envelope for a lovely surprise for a special someone!

Best wishes
