Challenge #195~~~No Foolin’

If you are looking for my Clear it Out post scroll down or click HERE.
The new challenge at  Shopping Our Stash is No Foolin’ so we want you to -- use a faux technique (faux stitching, faux silk, faux whatever)3
I decided to make a Faux Leather gift/money card wallet, we had made one years ago at a Stampin’up class, here is the tutorial I used for the basic measurements and technique but I decided to use the Bubbles cuttlebug folder and embossed the outside piece of cardstock then covered it with versamark watermark and clear embossing powder then heat set it.

Here is the inside

There are four pockets and it opens to put money in it instead of a gift card.
