Grungepaper business card holder

One of the many lovely people on the 'All Things Tim' yahoo group is the very creative Eileen who shared her template for making business card holders from Grungepaper. Thank you Eileen: I knew I HAD to make one: My business cards needed the protection and I just loved the idea. I want it to be able to take the use and abuse I am going to give it so kept the decorations fairly simple: I coloured the grunge with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, embossed it in the Cuttlebug (Floral Fantasy) and coloured some Tim Holtz idea-ology foliage and hitch fastener closure with alcohol inks.
I love it! And, as the challenge on 'Simon Says Stamp and Show' is embossing, it is getting entered there too.
You can see more of Eileen's card holders here and here.


  1. I'm so pleased you finally got to make one. It is lovely, and that color is FABULOUS! Enjoy it!

  2. This is terrific - sweet and simple but so useful - wonderful project. Great job on the embossing challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.

  3. That's adorable and useful! Really cute.
