Guess who is having a birthday today?????????

Happy Birthday Miss Turtle!!!! I hope you have a fabulous birthday party and get lots of nifty gifts and eat lots of cake and stay up really late with all your girlfriends.  And don't worry about your mom.  She doesn't need THAT MUCH sleep (LOL). XOXO Miss Turtle.

I hope you don't mind that I share with my dear Readers the birthday card I made you.  I fashioned it after the Canadian Nickel's wallet and my own personal wallet.  

The flower was made with the George&Basic flower cut at various sizes and then I used my inker from Ranger Ink to distress with Tim Holtz Distess Ink and then I "mod-podged" it to make the petals firmer.  I got bling from Michaels and I glued the layers with Scotch Quick Dry. I did use a thick ZOTS adhesive to adhere to the 'wallet.'  I used my Stampin' Up paper piercer to make stitch impressions.

I bought these velcro circles in the sewing section at Michaels

All Paper was bought at Michaels.  There is a little package of bling in the pocket sticking out.  The sentiment was from Scrappy Mom's.  and the insert tag was from Just Because Cartridge (I love this insert tag). I put a McD's gift card in the pocket

Dear Readers,
I know you all will be wondering about the measurements so I have posted the photos and the template of this card.  Please read the captions below the photos as there are two amendments that I wanted to clarify on my templates.  I'm sorry I cannot show you a video but my fingers are unsightly. 

Don't score right below the 5.75" mark. That was an error!

these are the pockets. Note: you can also cut out a rectangular area in the smaller piece and put acetate to make a Driver's License type pocket window.  I recommend increasing the width to 2.75" if you make this as it was a little tight for the gift card. 


  1. She's gonna love it!!! Fantastic job! The tutorial is super easy to follow to. Boy lady, you've come a long way!

  2. Fabulous Naomi! Love the color too. Wonderful birthday card

  3. Oh wow this is such a pretty wallet! Thank you for letting me know. I am knee deep in renovations and going through crafty withdrawls!

    I love the bling!!!!
