Faux leather

Hi Crafter's

Just a quick post today. It was my Son's birthday at the weekend and for some reason I always struggle with cards for the men in my life.

Because I couldn't think of what to make I made him this card.

I have used the layout before, I used it in my post "Happy on the edge"
This time I used a chevron embossing folder inked up with black memento ink.
The little stars are punched out of some faux leather card I created. 

I found a tutorial for the faux leather on the Stefany Whaitman web site. It's great fun to do, Stefany had made a note book with her faux leather and with my first go at making it I made myself a little note book too following her tutorial.

I had fun making this 

And here is a view inside. I've lined the inside with cotton fabric and hand stitched around the edge to finish it off.
It's great for keeping notes of things you can never remember like which inks I need for my printer.

Well that's all for this post. And thank you for stopping by.
I will ramble on about another project soon.
