Monochrome Boy's Card and Wallet

I thought this week's great sketch over at
Allsorts Challenge
was just perfect for a boy's card.
And, as it's my nephew's birthday soon,
I made a matching wallet for his birthday money.
You can't go wrong with cold, hard cash for teenagers can you?
There's a DT call at the allsorts blog this week too -
so get your name down if you're interested.
I used my favourite papers of the moment,
the Papermania Capsule Collection - this one is 'Mono'.

I made the wallet by simply folding a piece of card in half.
On the bottom half I stitched down 2 thin pieces of card,
that will hold the cash in place.

To keep it closed, I cut a narrow strip off the top piece of card,
so that it neatly tucks behind a circle, held in place with a brad.
Recipe -
Stamp - from the WOJ Spring 09 collection,
coloured with Copics.
Design Paper - Papermania capsule collection Mono
Brads and sentiment from my stash.
