Grungepaper Wallets w/ Encouraging Cards

I participated in a 12 Days of Christmas swap on the Byhand Artists Yahoo Group last month. There were a total of 18 of us in the swap so some days we opened 2 gifts instead of 1. Everyone did an amazing job with their gifts!! For my gift I decided to make little wallets from grungepaper. I first saw these on Eileen's Blog here and then on Linda's blog here and Linda actually has several posts related to wallets if you want to take time to look around. I colored mine with Distress Inks, embossed them in a Cuttlebug folder and then hit the high spots with Archival Ink. The backgrounds on the cards I made to go in them were done with Glimmer Mists and a variety of masks. All stamps used on the cards are from Quietfire Design.
