Embossed Card Wallet

This card wallet is made of 2-3 oz vegetable tanned leather,embossed with a Cuttlebug folder using my Wizard. I combined it with some black goatskin.

I really like the depth of the embossed texture.

The small pockets are for the small key fob tags that some of the stores use for their loyalty programs.

Leather purse and Card Wallets

My daughter requested a purse as hers was falling apart. This was made to the measurements she requested. She prefers the crossbody style and not too large. The purse is made from designer lamb, the strap from drum dyed vegetable tanned leather. The hardware came from a thrift store purse.

I made a little coin purse to match and found out that this leather was not happy about the turning out process on the smaller item. I used Resolene on the areas that stretched a little too much. Hopefully it will hold up.

These were made using 2-3 oz vegetable tanned leather in a Tim Holtz embossing folder, run through my original model Wizard die cutter. I really like the way they turned out although my block dying could have been better on the purple one.

The blue one is for my other daughter as it is her favourite colour.
