The original concept for the card is not my own--I saw a photo of one similar in Papercrafts Magazine (May/June 2011 edition, pg 17 by Kim K.) -- great for inspiring ideas and for getting your creativity flowin'. For my card design, I used Coredinations cardstock (CS) to make the base of the card and srunched it up and sanded to bring out the lighter touches of brown; then I brush matte Mod Podge over it to give it a leathery look. For the pockets I used Spice Worldwin CS, which I first embossed with Tim Holtz Gadget Gears Texture Trades, before inking with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used large eyelets to secure the pockets to the card, and smaller eyelets for the belt design.
