Photo Wallet

So what do I do with all my swaps? The gems get cased. I received a photo wallet at convention. I wish I knew who made it because it is gorgeous and has so much detail work on it. I would love to give someone credit for it but it got separated from it's label. And I don't even dare post a picture without permission from the original artist.

But I set out on Sunday to case it. I wanted to make it simple enough to offer at a class but still retain a lot of the charm of the original. The one I received also used the Always stamp set which I love and haven't played with enough. (Even that bird has grown on me.) So I was happy to use it on this project. I also used colors that are out of my normal pallet, but are starting to grow on me.

Here's my version closed:


When you open it up it looks like this:

And this is what it looks like when it all open:
