Money Holder Cards

A friend requested some money holder cards and gave me a store bought
card for a sample so here's what I came up with. My card base is 7 1/2 by 10 1/2. The 10 1/2 inch side was scored at 3 1/2 and 7 to get my three panels. I cut the top two inches off of the third panel (5 inches high) and rounded the top corner then folded it in to create the money pocket. To secure the pocket I used some sticky strip along the bottom of the flap.

Here's a view of the front of the card and the matching envelope.

I didn't have any envelopes to fit the card so I had to create my own. I'll try to include the directions for the envelope in my next post.

For the card front I used the retired SU Ruff Day set and greeting from Papertrey Ink. They're both stamped with Brown Stazon and the puppy is colored with an aqua painter and Distress ink re-inkers. The designer paper is from Chatterbox and the red is from Bazzill. I tied a piece of ribbon around the image panel and mounted it with pop dots to finish the card.
Here's another money card using the same layout, more Chatterbox papers and the TAC Monkey Business set.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please check back if you're interested in the details for the envelopes.
